If the stigma of the heavily-tattooed athlete being wild and crazy still exists, Shamarr Bowden is shooting down that unfair stereotype while also shooting his way into the hearts of East Carolina fans with his play on the basketball court.

Bowden, a 6-foot-4 junior transfer shooting guard, has worked his way back into ECU’s starting lineup the last two games and has helped the Pirates win both after they had lost their previous three in a row. Bowden turned in his best effort yet in an ECU uniform during Monday’s 76-51 trouncing of Coastal Carolina when he poured in a game-high 17 points, including five 3-pointers.


While he’s mostly covered in ink from neck to waistline, Bowden is the antithesis of an out of control madman, which is how some people still label those who choose to get body art.
