Tattoos are among humanity’s most ubiquitous art forms. Cultures from every continent in the world have embedded permanent dyes in their bodies as mystical wards, religious figures, inportant days, status symbols or simply as personal decoration. That tradition continues today …


It seems as though tattoos have become an essential part of many footballers’ life.  Every inportant achievement finds its way to their bodies, serving them as a reminder of the glorious moments from the days gone by.
