Literally Just 20 Lionel Messi Tattoos To Admire

Lionel Messi is probably one of the most recognizable faces in soccer right now. Sure, part of it is likely because of the super sweet moment he had with a child from the Middle East that wore a plastic bag that looked like his jersey. But it is also probably because of he amazing soccer skills. Here are 20 tattoos of the soccer legend that prove fans have a very deep love for the athlete.

Simple. Clean. Recognizable.

If you don’t want to get too intense, or expensive, this is the way to go. Just the number on the jersey and the last name. Everyone will recognize it.

The best part of art is that things don’t have to be perfect. Here we see what would be a blurry photo expertly placed on a Messi fan.

Minimalistic Messi is pretty dope.

This should give all of you some inspo on how to turn your doodles into a permanent art installation.

Nothing like reminiscing on the major life events.

Copa del Rey is a major soccer tournament played in Spain between the different Spanish soccer teams. Of course Messi was on the winning team more than once.

Why settle for just one Messi image?

You have two legs and soccer is all about the legs. Therefore, it just makes sense to show off your love for Messi with two tattoos, one on each leg.

A pensive portrait is always nice.

It’s like all of those photos your mom and abuela took of you and hung all over the house. A nice portrait really goes a long way.

There is something to be said about the classic from behind photo.

That way you get to see the name and number and everyone will know who the tattoo is for.

Some times you love the player more than the game/teams.

And when you love the player, like Messi, you just have to change your loyalty to the different teams he graces.

Get meta with it.

Lionel Messi with his number inside his number. Talk about a true memorial.

Maybe your favorite Messi was blonde Messi.

There’s nothing wrong with remembering someone the way you loved them. Perhaps his darker hair is just too much for you to handle.

Who else remembers those portraits with floating heads?

It might not read as well as a tattoo but it’s your body so you can do with it what you want.

Messi, el Santo de Fútbol.

That’s one way to honor one of the most memorable soccer players of all time. Fight me.

It’s always a good time to remember the good times.

A celebratory tattoo is a great way to remember the best moments.

Autograph tattoos are *still* in style, apparently.

Simple and to the point. How many times have you ever considered getting your favorite athlete’s or celeb’s tattoo on you?

One way to honor the soccer player is to remember the good he has done.

It wasn’t that long ago that he was so moved by an Afghani child that he sent a jersey and soccer ball to the fan. What a sweet moment to remember as part of Messi’s legacy.

Stoic pics are some times the best way to go.

No fluff, no smiles, no fancy outfits. Just a man concentrating on the game that lies before him and the determined look of a true professional.

Get a caricature of the man and slap in on your arm.

I mean, we all love to get ourselves drawn by the folks on the piers or any other tourist trap. Why not use that inspo and get a fun tattoo?

If you think he’s a king, let the world know.

That’s right. Some people are so enamored with people that they see them as royalty. The Internet is a great place.

Did we mention portraits yet?

Because they are still a great way to memorialize the great.

Show the love you carry in your heart.

Becky G Turns the Party in “Rotate” with Burna Boy

Becky G Turns the Party in “Rotate” with Burna Boy

Becky G is coming through with the best bangers of the year so far. On Feb. 25, she collaborated with Nigerian artist Burna Boy for the commanding “Rotate.”

Today’s top soccer stars appear in a Pepsi commercial with “Rotate.”

Becky G and Burna Boy first premiered “Rotate” in a Pepsi Max commercial filled with soccer stars. In the “Fizz to Life” clip, Lionel Messi and Paul Pogba jump out of their photos on the walls. Shanice van de Sanden and Jadon Sancho also appear in the visual.

“‘Rotate’ to me is a celebration,” Becky G said in a statement. “I think it’s evident that fútbol holds a special place in my heart and having Burna Boy join me on this made sense because ultimately I wanted to embody the perfect pre-game song that gets the blood flowing, makes you want to dance and enjoy the sport.”

Becky G really said, “Figure 8!”

Not only is “Rotate” a nice jingle, but the whole song was released this week, and it’s so much bigger than its Pepsi placement. The reggaeton music that Becky G has immersed herself in meets the Afro-beats courtesy of Jamaican hitmaker Di Genius. The Mexican-American pop star takes over the dance floor in Spanish and English. Burna Boy scores a goal with his triumphant verse that elevates this global anthem. Becky G is ready to turn the party with Burna Boy.

“Rotate” is Becky G’s first taste of new music in 2021. Her last album, Mala Santa, was released in 2019 and it featured the hits like “Sin Pijama” with Natti Natasha and “Mayores” with Bad Bunny.

Dad Of Julio Urías Got A Tattoo Honoring His Son’s World Series Win

Parents always find new ways to be proud of their children and how to tell the world how proud they are. This includes Julio Urías’ father who recently unveiled his newest tattoo in honor of his World Series-winning son.

Julio Urías’ dad is showing off just how proud he is of his son.

A post shared by Andres Ortega Rojas (@ortega_ink)

Tattoo artist Andres Ortega Rojas posted photos on Instagram showing off the tattoo. Carlos Urías forever enshrined his sons victorious lunge after Game 6 against the Tampa Bay Rays while a tattoo on his left arm.

Rojas told TMZ that the tattoo took nine hours to complete and that is was Carlos’ first tattoo. The moment captured on Carlos’ arm is one that is etched into the brains of Dodgers fans. It was the first time the Dodger has won the World Series since 1988 ending a decades-long dry spell.

The tattoo is catching everyone’s attention.

People are loving the tribute made to his son with a tattoo. It being his first tattoo is even sweeter. We all know how much our parents are anti-tattoos so seeing this happen is extra touching. Julio is framed by the flags of the Commissioner’s Trophy in the tattoo marking what is clearly Carlos’ most proud moment.

The moment marks a culmination of a long journey to athletic stardom.

Julio first pitched for the Dodgers in 2015. The Mexican baseball player was called up to join the famed baseball team. Carlos and the family made a 13-hour road trip from the Mexican state of Sinaloa to Maryvale Park in Phoenix, Ariz. It was after that long trip that Carlos got to see Julio on the field pitching against the Milwaukee Brewers.

It just goes to show you that anything is possible and that, if you work towards your goals, they can come true.
