@easportsufc gone have to update my character

A post shared by Kevin Lee (@motownphenom) on

I’m not a tattoo guy, which has more to do with a fear of commitment than any anti-ink sentiments, but I do appreciate artistic style. That’s why I stand in awe of what UFC veteran Kevin Lee has done with his head.

I don’t know what you call it, but it's pretty epic.

Lee (18-6) is currently ranked No. 10 at 155 pounds, despite losing three of his last four. “The Motown Phenom” was last seen tapping to Charles Oliveira at the UFC Fight Night 170 event back in March.

Here’s another look at the planning stage:

The feedback on Lee’s social media platforms has been mostly positive and that’s a credit to his tattoo artist Noelin Wheeler, who fans may recognize from the “Ink Master” series on Spike TV. I’ve only seen “Tattoo Nightmares,” which is hilarious for all the wrong reasons.

As of this writing, the 28 year-old Lee remains unbooked.
