Weekend Quiz Answers: Who Did Those Tattoos Belong To?By: Laurie | April 5th, 2009
First, if you haven’t taken our Weekend Tattoo Quiz, stop by this post and make your guesses. Then come back here for the answers.
These are always tough, but “wob” managed to get 10/13. Nicely done!
Nery Castillo, Shakhtar Donetsk
This tattoo is apparently a picture of his parents’ wedding? (Because if I were his wife/girlfriend, that’s what I’d like to be looking at my whole life.)
Congrats to Al, first to see Nery.
Steve Sidwell, Aston Villa
On the other hand, seeing your own marriage vows on your spouse’s back is a slightly different story. His wife’s thinking, “He’s mine, you wannabe WAGs, and I’ve got the ink to prove it!”
Congrats to JDunn, first to see Sidwell.
Brian Ching, Houston Dynamo
I believe that would be the state of Hawaii. Anybody know what the word is?
Congrats to megs, first to see Chingy.
Mateja Kezman, who I believe is still on loan to PSG
Some sleeve, eh?
Well done to jvk, first to see Kezman.
Naldo, Werder Bremen
For sheer artistry, I’m going to have to make this one the pick of the litter.
Congrats to wob, first to see Naldo.
Raul Meireles, FC Porto
This is one of many, many tattoos for Meireles. I’d show you a full body shot, but I may use them for future quizzes.
Congrats to wob, first to see Meireles
Wayne Rooney, Manchester United
“Just enough education to perform.” It’s a musical reference, of course.
Congrats again to wob, first to see Rooney.
Dejan Stankovic, InterMilan
As you can see, this one reads, “I belong to you Ana.” Let’s hope it lasts, or for the rest of his life he’ll be searching for another Ana. Or a Hana, Roxana, Leana, etc.
Despite this being a pretty distinctive tattoo, nobody recognized is as Stankovic’s.
Ezequiel Lavezzi, Napoli
Nobody got Lavezzi’s Maradona tattoo! I’m shocked!
Santino Quaranta, DC United
I believe the tattoos are something to do with being clean and sober and recommitted to both family and football. Well done, Santino!
Congrats to MLS fan megs, who got both Ching and Quaranta.
Ricardo Quaresma, currently on loan to Chelsea
Note that the tattoo is strategically placed on the arm, so he can remember the name he’s supposed to cry out at the appropriate moment.
Kind of like Amauri.
Congrats yet again to wob, first to see Quaresma
Paolo DiCanio, officially retired
According to one source, these are “‘fasces’ he has tattooed onto his back. An ancient symbol depicting a bundle of sticks with an axe protruding from the top, the fasces is a symbol for Italian fascism, and was used on Mussolini’s personal flag.”
Charming. So I suppose I should be glad nobody got this?
Sergio Busquets, FC Barcelona
“The phrase of the tattoo is a personal phrase and I especially dedicated the goal to my grandfather.” Spanish media claim that the meaning of the phrase is “A thing for you, the life in my country” and that it has a personal meaning known only to Busquets.
Congrats to wob, yet again as the first to see Busquets.
