Chelsea striker Fernando Torres’ has a number of tattoos and the 29-year-old is constantly adding new ones, which has many wondering if he’ll be rivaling David Beckham in the ink department!
Fernando has several numbers, including the number 9, which is his player number on Spain’s national team. He also has several Roman numerals on his shin: VII-VII-MMI. That Roman numeral translates into 7- 7-2001. It’s unclear the precise significance of that date, but he did meet his wife in 2001, so it’s possibly related to the date of their first date. Others believe it may be the date that his grandfather passed away.
His ink includes several names including that of his wife, Olalla on his left arm. He also has tattoos of his two children’s names, Leo and Nora; those tattoos extend down his right arm.
Curiously, Fernando Torres’ tattoos also include his own name, which is tattooed on his arm in Tengwar, which is a fictional language invented by J.R.R. Tolkien, author of the famed Lord of the Rings novels.
