Tattoos in football have become a heavy fashion and a way to portray one’s lifestyle. Famous footballers like Lionel Messi, David Beckham, Ramos, Zlatan, and many others have gone through several needles to get their bodies painted.

And there is a Portuguese talisman, Cristiano Ronaldo who does not have a single tattoo on his body just because he regularly donates blood.

Every Tattoo depicts a story and a reason behind it. No way, anyone would just put permanent ink in their body, unless you are the Spanish defender, Alberto Moreno, who has a tattoo of a monkey wearing glasses and headphones. Can you imagine any reason for it?

And there is Leroy Sane, who just tattoos his whole back him celebrating a goal. The moment was of Man City’s 5-3 victory over Monaco in the Round of 16. Later they lost the match in the second league. It’s got a story, but FUNNY.
