Is this guy Messi's no.1 fan? Well if his Messi tattoo is anything to go by...he is!!
Barcelona star Lionel Messi is of course used to signing all manner of fan memorabilia, from shirts and footballs to posters and books, but has he ever signed someones tattoo...he has now! While in his hotel Messi took some time to meet and greet fans, giving out numerous autographs in the process, he even signed someones back tattoo. Though that's not the end of the story, the dedicated fan went and had the signature tattooed onto him permanently!!
The fans back is already decorated with a portrait of Messi inspired by the player celebrating a goal in the 2012-13 season with his, now iconic, pointing to the sky celebration.
Interestingly the tattoo is dedicated to two rather specific events in Messi's illustrious career, his wins of the 2012 and 2015 Copa Del Rey trophy. If ever the fan decided to add to the backpiece he still has plenty of silverware to choose from; to date Messi has bagged 7 La Liga titles, 3 Champions Leagues and 5 Ballon d'Or's, as well as a host of other awards!
Clearly one dedicated Barca fan this guy may have even more reason to celebrate when the season ends with Barcelona currently on course to bag another league title! If you want to see more mesmerizing Messi tattoos then we've got you covered, just follow the link!
