Do you know players have reasons for the their tattoos apart from aesthetics. In this article I highlight meanings from the tattoos on the legendary Spanish footballer, Sergio Ramos.
Ramos has approximately 42 tattoo drawn on him. But for the sake of simplicity, I have shrank them into sections. Let's go!
Lion on his back
This is basically a sign of strength which Ramos is known for.
Quote at the back of his neck
It reads, " A lion never loses over the opinion of sheep". This is likened to his tough style of football. He goes into any tackle with an ambitions to get the ball any how.
Unicorn and quote motivated by Mandela
It also comes with a quote from Madela's line in the movie, Invictus. It reads, " Thank God for my unconquerable soul. I am the master of my destiny.

Mirian is his sister's name while Rene is his brother's. 4 is his shirt number.
These faces belongs to Ramos' mother, Paqui and his sister, Mirian.
