Lionel Messi has provided the finishing touch to a fairly unique tribute to his talents, offering his signature to be permanently added to a back tattoo of his image.
One fan waited to meet his idol at an icons signing in Barcelona, before revealing the extreme lengths he was going to for a unique piece of Messi memorabilia.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was happy to oblige, signing the supporter’s back with a marker for him to later make permanent at a tattoo parlour.
The meeting between Messi and one of his biggest fans came about in a hotel reception where the signings for Icons’ Official Signed Messi Merchandise range was taking place.
Icons offer a more painless option for fans wishing to get their hands on a signed memory from the world’s best player.
The image chosen for the fan’s tattoo depicts Messi celebrating a goal in the 2012-13 season.
Strangely, the Barcelona supporter’s back specifically celebrates two of the raft of trophies Messi has won throughout his career: The Copa del Rey triumphs of 2012 and 2015.
Messi also helped Barca to the Spanish Cup in 2009, a trio of wins that sit alongside seven La Liga victories and four Champions League medals on his impressive honours list.
Barcelona leads La Liga with a game in hand over closest rivals Atletico Madrid and look on track for even more silverware this season.
