In light of the 2016 Olympics, through the victories and controversies, let's celebrate the feats and strengths of overachieving athletes from all over the world.

Various athletes sport their own ink and put them on display in the games as seen on swimmers, gymnasts, and many more (I could talk about gold and bronze medalist swimmer Anthony Ervin's sleeves all day) 😉     

Most of the tattoos you'll see here are mostly divers and swimmers design — who are incidentally making the most uhm, waves in the news right now. From history-making Simone Manuel to Michael Phelps memes and swimmers kicking teammates out of shared rooms for hookups, it's going to be one mad Olympics indeed.
