His very first tattoo was a portrait of his mother on his back, then he got the handprints of his newborn child tattooed on the calf of his left leg to celebrate fatherhood. On his leg, is a number 10 and the name of his son ‘Thiago’, to show his love for his jersey and his son.

Currently the most expensive Footballer in history, Neymar da Silva Santos Junior, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays forward for French club PSG. The big fan of tattoos strongly relates to the ink work in style.

The tats largely make reference to his family and life experience.

Expressing oneself isn’t generally advised in Russia, but Smolov seems like he has nothing to fear with a raft of tattoos covering both of his arms and the back of his right hand. Vividly conspicuous on his right hand are the words ‘Love’ and ‘Free F510’.
