Lionel Messi gave his tattoo artist a tattoo
Lionel Messi is a fan of body ink, with a massive tattoo on his shin, and some newer skin art on his arm, but he recently jumped to the other side of the needle when a tattoo artist asked the Barcelona star to ink his jersey number onto his wrist.
Messi's new tattoo sleeve was done by Roberto Lopez, and when he was finished he asked the striker to return the favor by putting "10" upon his wrist.
The new tattoo is not Lopez's first from an Argentine striker, as he also had Boca Juniors star Martin Palermo make his mark on his left wrist.
