The tattoos of Paris Saint-Germain’s Ibrahimovic moved Nike designers so much that they created a jacket based on the body art.
Need we say more?
Shockey’s patriotism spans the length of his right arm.
Ellis’ tribute to his family covers his entire bicep and continues onto his chest as part of a family tree.
Cisse’s wife, Celeste, is commemorated on his left collarbone, while the rest of his upper body is adorned with a wide array of other art.
The French swimmer has elevated body art in the pool. Your move, Ryan Lochte.
Wallace’s right arm is adorned with an homage to the Egyptian gods Akhenaten, Nefertiti and their children below rays of the sun.
Martin’s tattoo of his girlfriend’s lips might be considered a little odd. The cross on his back is anything but. His unique shape and shading is a creative take on classic design.
Jorgensen’s colorful antics in the octagon are matched only by the ink on his arms (and hair).
Hard to make a list of ridiculously awesome tattoos and leave out Rodman.
Wilson Chandler’s right hand depicts an eye of an angel with the words “All is Well” underneath. The symbolism behind the ink is that the angel is watching over him always according to Chandler.
Daniels has “1090 Blokk Boyz”, the name of the tattoo on his neck. We haven’t heard his music but the tattoo is pretty wild.
Some of Beck’s notable ink includes Hindi characters spelling out “Victoria”, his wife’s name, on his left arm and his right arm bears flames and the phrase “Let them hate as long as they fear.”
The man has a dagger on his chest. The end.
