Soccer Player's Tattoo
Does anyone recognize who this person is? I originally found this photo in Yahoo Fifa's website, but then lost the link. I think he is a professional soccer player. His arm tattoo appears to be a serie of random characters.
恒 = constant, regular, persistent
雷 = thunder
氏 = clan, family; mister
心 = heart; mind, intelligence; soul
和 = harmony, peace; peaceful, calm
Update: Andy has identified this player to be Christian Vieri, an Italian soccer (or football) player.
Zhwj has forward an interview Mr. Vieri has done with Titan Sports in 2003. When asked about his tattoo, Vieri mentioned "I went to a tattoo parlor, but they did not tell me the characters' meanings. I picked these because I liked their look." Also, Vieri was pleasently surprised when the interviewer told him the meanings of the characters.
