Bodies littered in tattoos is a sight far too common among footballers. From bizarre and dodgy designs to classic tributes, they make sure there’s a plethora of body art on show.
Chelsea’s Mason Mount is the latest star to have jumped on the bandwagon. And have no doubt about the tattoo being incredible, for it’s one that commemorates Chelsea’s Champions League triumph at Porto.
The Blues midfielder marked the historical achievement by getting it inked on the left side of his abdomen. The design, which is rather simple and minimal, features a dragon coiled around and holding the Champions League trophy.
The tattoo, revealed by famous tattoo designer Miles Langford who owns The London Social, drew mixed opinions from fans; some claiming it to be “cold” while others questioning his choice of placement.
Mount claimed the first major trophy of his senior career last season when Chelsea beat Manchester City at Estádio do Dragão to win the coveted title.
The Chelsea midfielder played an integral role under Tuchel in last season’s European campaign, appearing in 11 matches including the final.
In fact, it was his pass that saw Kai Havertz score the finale’s only goal, enabling them to win the famous trophy for only the second time in the club’s history.
The latest tattoo, no doubt, is a special one for the Chelsea youngster, for the obvious reason that it’s his first, signifying perhaps the best moment of his professional career so far.
With time on his side and a bright career beckoning, Mount probably ought to have more opportunities in future to get his hands on another major trophy and, in turn, more body art celebrating his achievements.
