Tattoos

Which players have tattoos, what do the tattoos look like, and
where are they located on the players' bodies?
If you have pictures of the players' tattoos, be sure to post them.

Arnaud Clément haas an owl on his arm, it's his favorite animal...

Re: Tattoos

Flip, of course, thinks himself "Alexander the Great", as witnessed on his shoulder...

Why is it the year of the monkey that he has?

Any idea exactly where his tattoo is located?

Re: Tattoos

Moya has barbed wire around his upper arm.
Edit: I've been corrected. These are 'dolphins'...

Alex Bogomolov has chinese characters tattooed on his upper right arm (I think it's the right) that mean "Fear No Man." Wasn't able to get a good photo of it the last time I saw him though .

PAW 2013:
Munich - 2nd place
Halle - 4th place
's-Hertogenbosch - 4th place
GSTAAD - WINNER

OMG, that must be a mistake. 'Cause when we talk about Chinese year symbols, we shall use Chinese lunar calendar. According to that, 1980/1/27 should be in the year of goat/ram/sheep, not monkey. After 1980/2/16 (the Chinese lunar new year) it would be the monkey year. Marat was born in the year of goat/ram/sheep. So was Ferrero.

What to believe in, it's impossible to say?
What to believe in when they change your name, wash your brain, play the game again, yeah, yeah, yeah...

Yes, Kiro, lots of people make that mistake But I also heard that it's not determined by when the Chinese New Year is but when's the day Spring begins (not Spring arrives which is around March). I can't remember the terms in English though.
