There are tattoos and then there are TATTOOS… Mauro Icardi has very much gone for the latter.

The Inter striker has revealed on Instagram a quite remarkable ink job across the entirety of the top half of his body, featuring tributes to loved ones and a family of lions.

Here it is in all its glory…

“After three sessions in five months it is taking shape @arturholykoi,” he wrote on Instagram alongside the lion he now sports on his chest, and the tattoo artist responsible for the work.

“As always my friend, thank you for this work of art that we started dedicated to my two loves plus Chiquitos, Francesca and Isabella.

“See you soon to continue.”

We can’t imagine what Icardi could possibly be envisaging next, except that there is a tiny bit of space left around his neck area.

Bravo, Mauro.
