We Put The Ink In Boxing

Fresh off the sports ring is the result of the most-awaited fight between two world-class boxers Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao

We here at Tattoodo congratulates both athletes, wished there had been more action though!
The heat has only fired up as the fight neared its date, and now it has finally happened. There were varied opinions and reactions, but still, what's done is done. They gave us all a show.

Unfortunately, the champ currently has no tattoos. He avoids them among other things such as from smoking and drinking alcohol. But his former fiancee did get a tattoo in honor of Floyd. It was a pair of boxing gloves surrounded with forty-two, tiny hearts to celebrate the boxer's forty two victories then.

Here's an impressive portrait by Domantas Pervainis, though!

The "people's champ", on the other hand, is definitely no stranger to tattoos. He has them scattered all over his torso and aren't afraid to show them. His first tattoo is the tiny boxing glove on his left chest. He also owns a tattoo shop named Manny Pacquiao Merchandise & Tattoo in Los Angeles.

Australian brawler Michael Katsidis has a full back tattoo of he Verginia Sun, symbol of Macedonia. Heritage tattoos are very common among boxers everywhere. But you gotta give it to this one, that back piece is beautiful.

This one sure does take his ink seriously. Archak 'Shark Attack' Termeliksetian has gotten a large shark tattoo on his chest, extending to the back. True to its name, it's meant to stand for what he is on the ring: ruthless as a shark.

And of course, there's no forgetting this one. With a glimpse of that face tattoo, there's really no need for introduction.

Let's end this one with a definite eye candy. He does not need to get physical to knock me out. (On second thought, I won't mind that.)
