He expects that the mural will remain on the building - but with all tattoos removed except the word "Indiana" spelled out on Bird's left forearm.

'This is another human being that is obviously not liking it, ' she told the IndyStar Wednesday morning.

Muck has painted murals for TV shows and movies, including "It", and done several large-scale murals in Miami's Wynwood neighborhood for that city's Art Basel event.

Artist Jules Muck says she was just trying to be amusing.

Larry Legend is not about to become Larry Ink.

The word "Indiana" on his left forearm is expected to be the only skin art left behind after an agreement reached Tuesday between Muck and the three-time National Basketball Association champ, his attorney said.

Black holes are so dense and their gravitational pull is so strong that no form of radiation can escape them - not even light. Scientists may have observed something that has never been seen before: a black hole swallowing a neutron star.

In a February 2019 interview with MSNBC, Bird was asked about the differences between the National Basketball Association of today and the National Basketball Association of the 1980s.

The only other solution would have been for Bird to actually get all those tattoos in order for the mural to be totally authentic.

"All of his friends and 98% of his players are tattooed. She said that many people reached out suggesting she painted Bird, and then had the cover of a Sports Illustrated from 1977 with Bird on it sent to her - which is what sealed the deal", Yahoo! "I just wanted to have a little fun". While Muck maintains, "It's nothing personal against Larry". Muck, who often adds tattoos to portraits to avoid creating an exact replica of a photo, reportedly was asked by a lawyer for Bird to remove the tattoos from the piece.

"They said the tattoos are the problem", she told the Star before the new agreement.

'The main thing is that if the statement doesn't bother me, it shouldn't bother anybody, ' he said at a press conference.
