James Harden is among the most recognizable players of the Brooklyn Nets thanks to the majestic beard that he’s been sporting for the majority of his career since leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder. With Harden being one of NBA’s most prolific scorers, it quite fair for fans to gravitate toward him for tattoos. However, this tattoo was meant to be dedicated to Jesus instead.

Herman Aldo Wibowo, a run-of-the-mill humble tattoo artist shared a tattoo he did of Black Jesus, and it was released with practically no fanfare at the time. Unbeknownst to Herman the image made its way to Twitter on November 3 and twitter did what it does best.

The photo is now viral with Harden himself joining in on the fun.
I’m very stoked with how this out came out,” read the caption of the original Instagram post, it seems pretty clear that the artist didn’t see any resemblance to Harden at the time.

However, With a simple caption of “That’s James Harden my brother,” the image has been able to collect over 117,000 likes for @Asharp52, which is a level of viral that many users dream to have.

Who knew James Harden could be the perfect model for Black Jesus? We hope the Tattoo Artists benefits from the much needed exposure and wish him the best for future!
