Tattoos of Zlatan Ibrahimović

Zlatan Ibrahimović, from Sweden,is a football player who is one of the most popular and powerful forwards in the world. As a center forward with a height of more than 6.2 feet, his header skills are not very outstanding. On the contrary, he has extremely incredible fancy skills under his feet. He is one of the most noteworthy football players, and his tattoos are indeed all over the world. Zlatan Ibrahimović's tattoo makes him one of the most decorated football players. Among the athletes who made our championship history, he is the most beautiful and interesting person with tattoos. But what are his tattoos and what do they mean?

He was initially recognized by one of the world's leading companies in the production of sportswear and accessories: Nike. In fact, in 2011, Nike decided to put on the market the "honorable" jacket specially created for this famous forward.

On the back of this beautiful version of the famous Destroyer Jacket, some tattoos of Zlatan Ibrahimović were made: he showed those tattoos on his back.

Zlatan’s Back Tattoos

Let's start with the tattoo on Zlatan Ibrahimović's back. On the left shoulder blade, we can see a huge koi fish in the waves in the design. In Japanese tradition, koi is a symbol of courage and perseverance, and a good sign of childbirth. On the right behind it is a dragon, completely red. The dragon is the bearer of peace and wisdom and represents the element of water in Japanese tradition.

In the middle of Zlatan's upper back, there is a big dream catcher design, which is usually tattooed to get rid of certain negative events. But we don't know the specific meaning of this topic for football players.

He also has two other tattoos on the back. These are quite complex designs belonging to Buddhist culture, symbolizing the pursuit of inner spirit and inner strength.

Zlatan has a very impressive English sentence under his left armpit: "Only God Can Judge Me". This shows the belief of the attacker and his weird temperament.
