San Miguel forward Arnold Van Opstal has a brand-new tattoo. And he had it inked on the back of his head.

The intricately designed tattoo contains lots of elements, but its most notable feature is his jersey number "7."

Van Opstal, known for his unorthodox fashion sense, said the tattoo is not necessarily related to basketball. 

“I’m just trying to encourage people to do what they want, to be the people that they want to be, and for them to not let anyone tell them they can’t be something or they shouldn’t do something, or you can’t get a job if you get a tattoo, or all that – it’s not true,” Van Opstal said in Spin.

“Just be yourself, do what you want to do, and don’t let fear guide you.”
