What do professional bodybuilders, doormen and footballers have in common?
They all love a tattoo. Sleeves, elvish, initials, dates… the lot.
But the best of the bunch can be found in Serie A, where Daniele De Rossi, Marek Hamsik and Mauro Icardi have spent hours under the needle.
One of the latest additions to Serie A’s ink gang is Benevento forward Amato Ciciretti.
While it might not have gone particularly well on the pitch for Ciciretti- Benevento took 15 games to pick up their first Serie A point- the 23-year-old has managed to catch the eye.
Not just for his outrageous set of tats either.
Ciciretti’s form has been good enough to earn a move to Napoli, according to Gazzetta.
The Roma academy product has scored twice for Benevento this season and is out of contract in the summer.
Napoli have reportedly offered Ciciretti a five-year contract, although a decision could still be made to pay a fee and bring him to Napoli in January.
One thing’s for certain. The tattoo parlours of Naples will be rejoicing when he arrives.
