Chris Gayle, one of the most popular names in cricket who is know for his pinch hitting. But apart from this, Gayle is a big time tattoo lover who loves getting inked come what may. Gayle has quite a few tattoos, but his star tattoo would be the lion with wings and a crown on his chest.
K.L Rahul could be easily shortlisted for a sexy model. This tattoo lover has more than seven tattoos and he admits saying that he is addicted to tattoos plans to get more in future.
Virat Kohli, the name is enough! Not just a great player but a stylish man with poise and latest trend and that includes tattoos too. Virat Kohli has quite a few iconic tattoos like the one on his shoulder, ‘the God’s Eye,’ ‘the Japanese Samurai’ on his upper left arm, his mothers name again on his upper left arm. The list goes on and neither can we get enough of him.
Kane Richardson, one of the most versatile cricketers of the Aussie team has a woman wearing a wolf’s hat on his right leg and also a sports fill sleeve on his left arms.
We know him for his funky hair but Malinga has quite a few mindblowing tattoos as well. His right arm has two dates, one is the date when he started playing for the Sri Lankan team and the other when he took four wickets in consecutive four balls. He also has his wife’s name inked, and apart from these he has a lion on his bicep and a ‘Destiny says it all,’ on his forearm.

Hardik Pandya is famous for so many things (let’s not begin *winks*) apart from his brilliant performance in the ‘gentleman’s game.’ This man could be easily rated as a style icon and definitely a tattoo lover with iconic tattoos all over him but his most famous one remains to be ‘Believe’ on his fore arm.
Michael Clarke has an Arabian tattoo on his arms which means, “The pain of discipline is something similar to the pain of disappointment.” Apart from this he also has his parents’ names inked on his ribcage in Hindi, his test number in Roman numerals across his back and a guardian angel on a cross with his former fiancee’s (Lara Bingle) initials.
