Uruguayan soccer player gets teammate's face tattooed on arm

Friday November 14th, 2014

19-year-old soccer player Gaston Pereiro is currently on the roster of Uruguay's Nacional soccer club with 38-year-old Alvaro Recoba, a player he grew up idolizing. To show Recoba how big a fan he is, Pereiro decided to get his teammate's face tattooed on his arm.

There are not words to express how creepy of a thing this is to do. Just try to imagine how any of your co-workers would react if you came in with their face tattooed on your body.

The only way this is acceptable is if it was done as a joke, in which case it is hilarious, but probably going a little too far just for a laugh.
