Sebastian Sosa, the Uruguayan goalkeeper has gotten a lion tattooed on his head.
The keeper tattooed a lion on his head after his hair fell out following a battle with coronavirus.
The 34-year-old, who plays for Argentine club Independiente, unveiled the striking inking in September having suffered from Covid-19 in the summer.
Anthony Joshua, Lewis Hamilton and Memphis Depay are just some of the Sport stars who have a lion tattooed on their body.
And Sosa has become the latest to join the trend after his hair started to fall out after a battle with the deadly disease.
He told TyC Sports: “I had coronavirus in July and at the end of August my hair started to fall out abruptly.
“It fell from all parts of my body. I knew it was a sequel to Covid.
“I only had a few left, so I decided to shave. I’ve always liked lions, that’s why I wanted to tattoo one on the back of my head.”
He said: “My tattoo didn’t hurt. When the tattoo artist started I said ‘have you started? Is that all the pain?’ The truth was I got along pretty well, it was six or seven hours. I have the lion back there.
“If at any time I want my hair to grow back, I’ll cover it and if I want to show it off, I’ll shave it.”
Sosa also opened up on the nickname Independiente fans have given him since he showed off his new lion tattoo.
He added: “They tell me I look like Hitman, and I like him.”
