Lionel Messi, Tattoo Artist for a Day

Football fans will know how Barcelona scored the victory last month, aided by a goal from none other than Lionel Messi.
He sealed the game with his 400th goal for FC Barcelona. Leo #Messi's 400 goals, scored in six different official competitions #FCBlive — FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) April 18, 2015 Messi takes his celebration to the ink factory and decided to pick up another skill. This is by giving his artist a unique autograph that's more than what a Sharpie can give. He was first seen sporting his new tattoo sleeve by his good friend and artist, Roberto Lopez not long after playing against Valencia. Weather might have caused him to take off his sweatshirt and reveal a sleeve he has kept hidden under protective wear during games.

Before you get your football knickers in a twist, let us remind you that although Lionel Messi wins big on the field, this is his first time messing with the machine. So don't expect a biomechanical on Lopez's arm just yet. It might be only for kicks, but it only goes to show that the footballer is down for many things aside from scoring goals for both his teams.

The Barcelona team's finest gave his artist a tiny tattoo of his number, 10 on the wrist. It's nothing mind-blowing; just a little role reverse and a simple tattoo, but it sure did make his artist happy. Lopez describes it as "the best autograph in the world." Sure no big deal, just a little tatt given by one of the world's best football player as of now.

Messi was criticised not so long ago when a snap of his leg tattoos were shown to the public through an Instagram post of his girlfriend. They didn't think highly of his sleeves, either. Many thought it was "horrendous" and "didn't fit the football superstar."

As for the Argentine's tattoo progress, he has been working on his tattoos as early as February 2015.
