Shit Football Ink: Genoa’s Daniele Portanova Has A New Belly Tattoo – One Naff ‘Stick Figure’ For Each Club He’s Played For…

By Chris Wright

Italy Soccer Serie A

Already heavily inked elsewhere about his person, Genoa captain Daniele Portanova has come up with a novel way to keep track of all the clubs he’s represented over the years, having a frankly grotesque tattoo of six stick figures etched across his hairless belly – each one wearing the strip of one of the six teams he’s played for since turning pro in 1996…


The teams are, in order from left to right: Fermana, Messina, Napoli, Bologna, Genoa and Siena.

Portanova, 35 (i.e, a grown man), explained his ink thus: “This tattoo is a present for the teams where I gave and received a bit of love.”

We can only assume that Alberto Gilardino approves. largely as it makes his tattoo of Peppa Pig (yep!) look like a work of high-concept art…

    Call me weird, but I really like it

  2. Happel says:

    So do I Miro. Doesn’t look bad either.

  3. Zam says:

    It’s pretty decent, and it has meaning to the guy. Fair play, really.

  4. tesla says:

    I like it myself, cool idea and it’s meaningful to him.
    So couse you don’t like dosen’t mean it’s shit.

  5. DoodlePoodle says:

    I would like to agree with all the above. Chris is clearly prejudiced and quite frankly a k*********

  6. Raytomlinson says:

    Wow, I never thought I’d see doodlepoodle making sense.

  7. Sjakie Meulemans says:

    Chris, you clearly don’t care for tattoos, and that’s fine. But to label every single one as a ‘fail’ is a bit harsh.

    • Chris says:

      @Sjakie: I have nothing against tattoos at all, believe me. I just pay the price each and every day for being cursed with exquisite taste!

    I’ll say it’s rather naff… Not so much for the tatt, but for the placing. It’s quite bizarre to see Stick Doodling crap on one man’s abs…

  9. Jurgen says:

    I think they are cool.
