WHY tattoos are so popular in football | The tattoo craze

Most footballers are inked! Look at each country’s champions: 60% of Manchester City players, 54% of Bayern players, and in Spain, Italy and France footballers sport substantially more tattoos than the average guy or gal.

Why is that? Vanity? Time? Fashion obsession? Nope, there seems to be more to it than meets the eye.
