QPR boss Ian Holloway has got his first ever tattoo – at the age of 54.
Holloway allowed his son to ink his shoulder after claiming he had finally become good enough at his profession.
Holloway showed off his latest undertaking on Instagram, promising there would be pictures of his design to follow.
He captioned the post: “I told my boy I will only ever let you tattoo me when your good enough and that day has come!
“Chuffed to beans I made it through the 3 hours without fainting or crying the pain was definitely worth it, pictures to follow.”
Veteran manager Holloway will hope to needle dugout rival Alex Neil when the Hoops take on Preston tomorrow afternoon.
In this last outing, QPR earned a point against Brentford as Matt Smith and Luke Freeman struck in injury time.
Holloway criticised fans for leaving the game early but later apologised for his comments.
He said: “I’m ready to fight and I need you to fight with me, that’s all.
“So I’m sorry. You are a real QPR fan, of course you are.
“But I’m a passionate man, I always have been and I’ve got to get my team passionate. They’re not giving up.
“I don’t want you to. You missed a wonderful moment. It was wonderful. I’ll take that all day long. I can’t wait for the next game against them.
“What can I say? There’s a big debate on Five Live and for me as an overall football person, I understand the travelling you’ve got to do and the expense you’ve got. I fully respect that and I want to give you value for money.”
