So. I haven't posted in ages, and I've been planning to post this picspam for a long time now.
I have a bit of an obsession with tattoos. Ok, to say "a bit of an obsession" would be an understatement. So, I have quite a big obsession with tattoos. I myself have none, and I am unsure still whether or not I would ever take the plunge and and get one myself. I'm not scared of needles, but the idea of intentionally surrendering my body to someone so they can stick needles in me, inflicting great pain does not really appeal to me. However, tattoos in general, I like a lot. And combine tattoos with footballers, what do you get?? Answer: Extreme hotness.
THE FOLLOWING IMAGES MAY CAUSE CAPTIVATION, ASTONISHMENT, JEALOUSY, RESENTMENT, ENVY AND AN OCCASIONAL "DAAAAAAAMN"!
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
The Roman numerals VII VII MMI (7 7 2001) are tattooed on the inside of his right shin.
Some speculate about the origins of this date. Some believe it is the date Fernando Torres and childhood sweetheart Olalla first began dating, while others believe it is the date of Fernando's first goal. However, Fernando scored his first goal for Atletico on June 3rd 2001 and his first goal for the Spanish National Team was scored on the 28th of April 2004. There's been a lot of speculation as to what it might represent but nobody knows for sure.
The tattoo on his left forearm has his name "Fernando" tattooed in the Tengwar. Clearly, a fan of Tolkien. :]
In his autobiography, David Beckham: My Side, David Beckham reveals his thoughts on his tattoos.
"Mine are all about the people in my life, my wife and sons, who I want with me always. When you see me, you see the tattoos. You see an expression of how I feel about Victoria and the boys. They're part of me."
Brooklyn - the name of his first-born son runs across his lower back.
Romeo - the name of his second son sits just below the base of his neck.
Cruz - the name of his third son is placed just below the winged figure.
Guardian Angel - this is how Beckham has described the figure with arms outstretched that sits between his shoulder blades. This tattoo was later expanded to include larger wings.
Winged Cross - back of David's neck.
David Beckham's left arm - Victoria Beckham's name in Hindi script. Some claim that this tattoo has a misspelling in it. Below that tattoo is the Latin phrase "Ut Amem Et Foveam" which translates as "so that I love and cherish."
Beckham's most recent tattoo, much similar to Wentworth Miller's tattoo on 'Prison Break'. (See below)
Another photo of Beckham's 'Prison Break' inspired tattoo.
Victoria Beckham. (So she aint a footballer, but whatever, she still has an awesome tattoo.)
Victoria's tattoo has 4 eight-pointed stars at the base of her spine.
On his upper back, is a tattoo with Chinese characters while on the lower back, is a tattoo of "Christian" (his son).
On the inside of his upper right arm, is "Andrea" (one of his sons) and on the outside, a tattoo of a warrior. On his right forearm, is a tattoo saying "Daniela" (his wife).
Another photo of Canna's warrior tattoo.
Agger has tribal symbols across his upper back.
He has numerous tattoos, including a viking on his upper right arm and an intricate band around his left elbow.
According to Wikipedia, Daniel Agger has three tattoos and apparently is a tattoo artist himself.
Ljungberg has two tattoos of panthers on his back and side.
Kewell's tattoos are of Aztec warriors and they illustrate their whole aspect of civilisation.
Aztecs were indigenous people dominant in Central Mexico at the time of the Spanish invasion in 1519.
A close up of Kewell's tattoo. :]
And another photo, just because I will never get sick of Harry Kewell photos. xD
Djibril Cissé on his favourite tattoo: "My favourite one is my wings and I have my daughter's name as well on my neck."
Unfortunately, I couldn't find any information about Valeri's tattoos. :[ But they're still really damn sexy!
Couldn't find much about Grella's tattoos either. But he definitely has at least two. :]
Sergio's tattoos are on his right wrist, left inner arm, left middle finger, left ear and back.
Among many other places, Sergio has tattoos on both his biceps: on his right bicep, in English: "The spirit of those dead"; on his left bicep, also in English: "Lies in the memory of those alive". It also contains the dates 9-11 and 3-11, the dates of the terrorist attacks on New York and Madrid.
Wasn't able to find any info. :[
Frings has a heck of a lot of tattoos. Once again, no information as it was all in German. :D
