Barcelona star Neymar has revealed the latest addition to his long list of tattoo collections.
The 23-year-old’s newest piece of ink shows a young boy apparently Neymar looking towards a town- possibly Mogi das Cruzes, where he was born – and dreaming of playing football, a brand new house and the Champions League trophy.
Miguel Bohigues, the artist who did the creation on the Brazilian’s left leg, spoke about the meaning of the tattoo on his Instagram.
He posted : “Seeing the meaning of this tattoo may be a successful title for my work, in which we see a young Neymar remembering origins, place of origin and all the years behind us on the road, leading us to a place where we can all endeavour to achieve our dreams. To become a No 1 Neymar.”
“Thanks again for your skin me (sic) to continue with my plan, thanks for inspiring to many and make us dream that in each of us there is Neymar.”
Back in June, Neymar showed off another of his impressive tattoos that of a portrait of his sister, Rafaella on the top of his right arm.
The image which was posted on Instagram, showed his sibling recreating the same pose seen on the tattoo.
Meanwhile, the Brazilian star has been ruled out of Barcelona’s clash with Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday due to a thigh injury he picked up during training.
Ahead of their clash with the German side, Barcelona took to Twitter and confirmed Neymar’s absence after the attacker picked up the strain and also hinted at Neymar’s doubtful presence for the league game against Deportivo La Coruna.
Barcelona are already safely through to the knockout stages, emerging as the winners of Group E. Boss Luis Enrique may now select a weaker team for the clash to avoid any more injuries to his key players.
The Spaniard decided to leave Gerard Pique and Andres Iniesta at home for the trip to Germany, with Jeremy Mathieu, Sergi Roberto, Douglas and Rafinha already missing through injury.
