Default Amar`e Stoudemire, amateur tattoo artist

He’s scoring machine and a ferocious shot blocker, but now Knicks star Amar’e Stoudemire can add amateur tattooist to his resume.

The bespectacled NBA All-Star took a challenge to ink celebrity tattoo artist BangBang Tuesday night, the Knicks off night, at the hoopster’s Meatpacking District pad.

BangBang, 26, of Brooklyn, shared with the Daily News on Thursday his photos of Stoudemire turning the tables on him.

“He gave me a basketball with some initials, which are kind of representative of his religious beliefs. I told him I wanted whatever he wanted to do,” BangBang said of the fresh tat on the inner calf of his right leg.

While Stoudemire is heavily decorated with body art — including the words “Black Jesus” on his neck and the scripture Matthew 20:16 on his chest — he has never given anyone a tattoo until now.

“He’s got a lot of strong Jewish beliefs, so he gave me kind of the Jewish term for God, or symbol of God. I love it,” said BangBang.
