In today’s world, football players have almost turned the art of tattoos, to a tradition in the round-leather game.
However, despite the large pool of players wearing various degrees of tattoos, there are still five exceptional football stars, who have not joined the bandwagon of tattoo wearing players (or not visible).
These set of footballers are uncompromising in getting their bodies tattooed and their basis for opting out of the ‘tattoo craze’ will tickle your fancy.
Here are the five players without any form of tattoos
5. N'Golo Kanté
France and Chelsea midfielder remains a humble footballer player despite the catalogue of successes he has recorded in recent time.
In an era where football players flaunt their expensive possessions, Kante opted for a low-key life.
It is pretty difficult to see the Frenchman displaying his body or wealth off the pitch. To say least, it will be among the wonders of the century to see Kante in a tattoo shop.
4. Andres Iniesta
Ex-Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta featured 674 times for the Nou Camp outfit
During his 22 years stay at the Spanish giants, Iniesta claimed 32 trophies and ranks among the greatest players the club have produced.
However, despite his overwhelming success in the round-leather game, one surprising aspect of the 34-year-old, is his decision not to wear tattoo or earrings.
3. Mohamed Salah
Egypt and Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is another top player who is not ready for the tattoo hype.
Speaking about his likes and dislikes, the Egyptian, who emerged the Premier League top striker last campaign said: “I don’t have tattoos, I don’t change hairstyles, I don’t know how to dance. I just want to play football.”
2 . David Luiz
Chelsea and Brazil international David Luiz is a devout Catholic like most South Americans. The Brazilian, who followed the path of compatriot and former World best player, Kaka wears no form of tattoo.
During the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Luiz was the only player in the Selecao starting 11 players that faced Croatia’s Blazers at Itaquera Arena, on June 12, 2014, that was not carrying a tattoo.
1. Cristiano Ronaldo
Five-time world best player Ronaldo is the fifth of the pick that is not crazy about wearing tattoo.
Speaking on the reasons why he still keeps his body without tattoo, the Portuguese star, revealed his love for helping humanities.
“I don’t have tattoos because I donate blood very often,” Ronaldo said, even as explained the process.
“It doesn’t cost anything,” he noted. “It’s a simple process and then you feel happy because you know you are helping another person,” The Juventus forward noted, before revealing why he became a bone marrow donor.
“It was the time when Carlos [Martins] was with us on the national team. He told us about the problem with his son and we, the players, showed great unity to help him and his son because we knew it was a very complicated situation,
“[Donating bone marrow] is something a lot of people think is a difficult thing to do but it’s nothing more than drawing blood and doesn’t hurt.
“I did it many years ago and if I had to do it again I would because this is a very serious disease for many children and we need to help them,” he submitted.
