“Tatman” Ryan Roberts of the Arizona Diamondbacks Talks Tattoos
Ryan Roberts of the Arizona Diamondbacks said he appreciates when people ask him about his many, many tattoos. Roberts told Big League Stew, “When I first started getting tattoos, I never expected to get a lot. Over the course of my life, everything started happening for a reason. If people want to know why, I’ll definitely explain the reasons behind them. If someone’s interested, I’m honored to tell them.”
Roberts, who recently turned 31, said he gets tattoos in order to show what inspires him: his Christian religion, as it relates to family and his other life experiences, including baseball. The first tattoos others probably notice are the Japanese characters for “family” on the left side of his neck. And there’s a whole lot more where that came from.
