Former MLB player Eric Hinske was named the Cubs first base coach on Tuesday, and he will also be bringing an interesting back tattoo with him to Chicago next season.

The tattoo was completed in the winter of 2010 and cost $5,000, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“It’s just traditional Japanese styling tattoo,” Hinske told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution three years ago. “I got a tattoo of a cross on my left arm when my grandfather died and I liked it, so then I got one of a dragon on my other arm. I just liked the way it looked. Then I got addicted to it, and I couldn’t stop. I had my arms and chest plates done so I just wanted to tie it all together so it looked like one big piece. So I just got this big Japanese warrior and this snake wrapped around with the snake’s mouth open, with wind and clouds and stuff. It’s pretty cool.”
