Lionel Messi sports tattoo with son’s name

Barcelona soccer star Lionel Messi this week in the elimination match between Argentina and Venezuela for the 2014 World Cup will debut a tattoo on his left leg with the name and the hands of his son Thiago.

Messi already has a tattoo of his mother’s face on his left shoulder blade.

Sources close to the Argentine team said that Messi had the new tattoo inked Tuesday during some free time granted to the team by coach Alejandro Sabella.

The photos of the tattooing session have been posted on Messi’s Twitter account @LeoMessifanclub.
