Barcelona is through to the round of 16 in this season’s UEFA Champions League, so star forward Neymar is celebrating with a huge new tattoo on his left calf that shows a detailed scene of a young Brazilian boy dreaming about soccer.

A tattoo that big must have taken a very long time, which means a lot of pain for Neymar, although it may have helped to distract him from the groin injury he suffered during club practice on Tuesday, which kept him off the field for the team’s 1–1 draw with Bayer in their final game of the Champions League group stage.

Neymar is on the shortlist for the Ballon d’Or this season, going up against Cristiano Ronaldo and teammate Lionel Messi for the sports most prestigious award.
