Matt Kemp tattoo by Jun Cha

When it comes to ink, Dodgers All-Star Matt Kemp goes to the best: Los Angeles-based black-n-grey artist, Jun Cha.

The baseball pro sat down with Cha for a new tatt, after getting an image of "Saint Michael the Archangel" back in 2010. This time, it's family first.

"Family first. The brother Matt Kemp is back to pay tribute to his late grandfather," the artist said on his blog ( "Thanks to Matt for sticking through another strong session, and his grandparents for the inspiration."

On his left chest plate, Kemp's entire left chest plate is covered with a portrait of his grandparents.

Jun Cha has a long list of celebrity clientele, including Jermaine Dupri, Drama Beats (MTV's "Fantasy Factory"), NBA baller Amir Johnson, Far East Movement's DJ Virman, and several other celebrity clients.
