Everybody loves Roscoe's chicken and waffles, but not everybody adores it so much that they would get an homage to it permanently inked on their skin. But that's what we have celebrities for, and so true to form, news broke today that NBA player Brandon Jennings is in possession of a giant tattoo of a chicken atop a waffle, with the words "Legend" and "Roscoe's" above it.

The tattoo is making headlines now, on sites like Yahoo and HuffPo, but Jennings says on Twitter that he got it his rookie year, which began in 2009. Still. We admire the Milwaukee Bucks point guard's dedication to his hometown of Compton -- in addition to the tat, Jennings is also the proud owner of a pair of Roscoe's sneakers.
