Lionel Messi signed on the back of a fan
The 33-year-old to possess six Ballons of Gold met with a fan who was able to grab the idol’s attention. The man received a long-awaited autograph from Messi. One of the best footballers of all time inked a tattoo on the young man’s back, which features the famous photo of Lionel.
It captures the moment the Argentinian holds up his jersey after scoring the winning goal against Barcelona’s main rival, Real Madrid, in 2017 at their home stadium. Then Messi scored the 500th goal of his career.
Argentinean broadcaster TyC Sports posted a photo of the incredible drawing on its Instagram page. It was there that Lionel saw the tattoo on the back of a fan and commented on the picture. The footballer stated that he would like to leave an autograph next to the stunning tattoo.
Soon Messi fulfilled his promise and signed on the back of a devoted fan. The delighted man decided that he wanted to leave the idol’s signature on his body forever, so he went to a tattoo parlor. And he made himself another tattoo, repeating the signature of the football player.

The footballer himself also boasts a large number of tattoos. Some important moments of his life are captured on his body, including the birth of a son. The image of the heir’s little palms, framed by small wings and the name of the baby, flaunts on the athlete’s left leg. And on the ring finger striker “Barcelona” “filled” the date of the wedding.
On the left shoulder blade of Messi there is a tattoo of the most precious person of a football player – his mother. And on the right shoulder – the image of Jesus in a crown of thorns, who looks up with hope.
Recently, Lionel has become so interested in tattoo art that he is actively making new drawings that attract the attention of the public.
The son of the famous British football player David Beckham also developed a love for tattoos. Brooklyn decorated his body with several drawings, and one of them caused bewilderment among fans of the star family.
