What's a man to do when the NBA doesn't let his loving marriage to his beautiful wife flourish on the court?
Get a tattoo!
For their own safety, Rule No. 2, Section II, Article B of the official NBA Rule Book states that players are not permitted to play with any type of hand, arm, face, nose, ear, head or neck jewelry. Yes, that includes wedding rings as well. Luckily, Steph Curry found something of a loophole.
The Golden State Warrior recently got wife Ayesha's initial tatted on his ring finger as a permanent replacement for when he can't play while wearing his wedding ring. The "A" tattoo is his second ink dedicated to his wife.
Back in 2013, the religious couple got inked with wrist tattoos inspired from 1 Corinthians 13:8, which starts with, "Love never fails." Both Steph and Ayesha got the matching tattoo in Hebrew.
Steph revealed in a February 2015 interview that he married young (23) because he didn't want to waste any time since he already knew Ayesha was the one.
Why waste time when you've found the right one, right? I knew. I had met my wife in high school and knew her story and her family what she was about. Very faith-orientated woman. She was so driven. We didn't date through high school, but we got to college and met 'again' out in Los Angeles for the ESPYs after the tournament run. She was living out there and pursuing her acting career. That was kinda just faith right there. Two kids from Charlotte meeting again in LA on a whim. Dated for three years. When I got to Golden State, I knew I found the right one so I didn't want to waste anytime.
To be young and in love!
