Lionel Messi new tattoo: Barcelona star shows off bizarre inking in Argentina training


Five-time Ballon d'Or winner's legendary left leg shin now almost completely black apart from number ten.

LIONEL MESSI shows off his bizarre new all-black tattoo during Argentina training.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s left shin and calf is covered almost entirely in dark ink – apart from the number ten, his shirt number, and a football.

Messi's leg was previously decorated with a sword, flower patterns and the handprints and name of his eldest son, Thiago.

But they are all strangely now covered up, as in its place now is a mass of black, with the weapon covered but the baby's hands still visible.
