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.

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?

It's on his left bicep and it's a monkey symbol because he was born in the chinese year of the monkey :)

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 :mad: .

:eek: 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.

Yes, Kiro, lots of people make that mistake :p 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.

So is Carlos' tattoo dolphins or barbed wire? I have no idea...but I took a photo of him in Bangkok and you can see the tattoo quite clearly. I think the photo's too big to post here, but it's on my site and the direct link is: http://www.geocities.com/atp_chica/Thailand_Open_2003_Photos_Page1.html
What do you think???

I'm sure Carlos' tattoo is dolphins because they showed very clearly drung French Open when he was interviewed and he said it was important for him because it made he think about his back injury or something like that. Definitly dolphins.

I have nothing against tatoos (even if I wouldn't get one myself), but if you're going to get one you'll keep for the rest of your life, at least get a decent one!

Some are so ugly :eek: A howl? A sun on a hand, wtf? That's awful. And is there something less original than barbed wire?

Ferrero's tattoo is not an archer. It's a Chinese Dragon. :)

indeed his tattoo remembered him on this terrible time, during those months he let him placed on his arm!!!!
