The body art was done by Vanessa Aurelia, a tattoo artist based in California with a significant following of her own.

Aurelia shared images of herself drawing the tattoo on the basketball player, revealing the final product on her Instagram page. Wade shared a similar post writing:

"57 years ago to the date, Martin Luther King Jr stood before a quarter of a million people from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and spoke the words, 'I have a dream.'"

This is not the first time the star is getting inked up, with his first piece being in 2018 after the birth of Kaavia James, his daughter with Gabrielle Union.

The actress announced that her husband had gotten their daughter's name tattooed onto him, joking that it had taken a lot of whiskeys for Wade to get through it.

One Twitter follower joked that they had almost gotten a stroke after seeing a photo of the tattoo.

One of those is Chicago, also found on his thigh, in honor of his hometown and the place that he was born and raised.

The star also has Wade County tattooed, as it is the county that his team is from, especially after commissioners voted to rename the county in honor of him.
