Steve Butcher shows off the beginnings of the "Dunk Sleeve" tattoo.
Well known tattoo artist Steve Butcher recently shared a glimpse of his latest masterpiece, featuring two of the most legendary dunkers in NBA history - Michael Jordan and Vince Carter.
According to Butcher, the VC and MJ tattoos he completed are part of a larger "Dunk Sleeve," that will feature some of the most memorable Dunk Contest moments. As of now, the sleeve includes an incredibly detailed version of Jordan's 1988 one-handed reverse dunk and an equally realistic rendition of Carter's 360 windmill from the iconic 2000 contest.

Of course, this isn't the first time that Butcher unleashed a jaw-dropping, photorealistic tattoo. In fact, Butcher is responsible for a plethora of life-like NBA tattoos, including the unforgettable LeBron James x Dwyane Wade artwork and Kobe's infamous dunk over Dwight Howard, as well as other tats inspired by Paul Pierce, JR Smith and Steph Curry.
