FGCU's Point Guard Dajuan Graf is seen in portrait Nov. 1, 2013 at Alico Arena in Estero. The 6-foot Charlotte, N.C. native is arguably the most inked on the team. On his chest is a dove and a message that says 'God is my strength.' 'I'm a religious person, he is my strength. People kept asking, 'When are you gonna get your chest done?' So at the end of 2012 I got this.' On his right arm,  Shoulder to forearm, reads, 'King of the court,' with a basketball in the clouds. 'Save a place for me' with prayer hands as referring to heaven. And finally Queen City, the city skyline of Charlotte, N.C. where he's from. On his left arm reads, 'Let us not love in word or speech but in truth and action.' Further down is in tribute to best friend who passed in June 2012 which reads, 'R.I.P. Jaquantus' He was a teammate who passed after an A.A.U. Tournament in his sleep from heart failure. 'Two weeks later I got this tattoo.' Further down reads, 'I shall fear no evil' depicted at the base of the Sacred Heart of Christ image. On the inner left forearm is in tribute to his grandma R.I.P. Renate 4-12-55, 1-21-05.
