Man Loves Football So Much He Tattooed His Team’s Shirt On His Body


A Brazilian football superfan loves his team so much he decided to tattoo the home shirt on his torso. Jose Mauricio dos Anjos has spent 90 hours in agony over the past year to get Flamengo’s red and black uniform inked on his body.

Jose told the publication that he has always wanted a tattoo to honour his team, and at 18 he got their mascot inked on his biceps. Wanting to go bigger, Jose was quoted £165 for parts of the shirt over his shoulders.

He tried to save money and even sold his motorcycle to afford the rest, but as they got started on the process, a tattoo artist offered to do the rest for free. After finishing up his front, he went on to his back where the number ’10’ is a constant tribute to the iconic Zico. Jose said he ‘never felt any regret’, partly because he got to meet his idol Zico in December, last year.
