Now on his 3rd signature model with the brand, the newest pair spotted on Irving features a graphic based on the tattoo that’s adorned his upper left arm for the past year and a half. In a black base with red accents throughout, the Kyrie 3s that Irving wore for the series-closing Game 4 in Toronto yesterday afternoon are highlighted by a rotated crop of his “Hamsa Hand” ink in white.
Khamsah, an Arabic word for “five,” symbolizes the fingers of the open hand graphic that’s thought to be both a protective icon and also bring good luck. Others have often referenced the “evil eye” as being Illuminati related.
The surrounding text of Kyrie’s Hamsa Hand tattoo also reads:
Let no sadness come to this heart
Let no trouble come to these arms
Let no conflict come to these eyes
