    What's the cost of a full sleeve?
    I'd say around £500- £750 for the lower half and around £750-£1250 for the top half and shoulder. It depends on the style and artist too. It's the same as anything where generally if you pay more you get a better quality tattoo.

    I've got one tattoo and would love to add a few more but it would have to be something really good and I just don't have the money for that at the moment.

    Ultimately tattoos are a personal thing. If they mean something to you and you like them then anyone else's opinion is largely irrelevant. About 20% of the total UK population is tattooed now, that rises to 30% among 25-39 years olds. We might look daft when we look older but a sizeable minority of us will all look daft together.

    I have a Hun mate who is everything you would expect a Hun to be complete with the full collection of Hun tattoos on both arms

    He eventually came to his senses and went to Turkey to get both sleeves done to cover them up

    Donít know how much it cost him ?

    Not sure what's worse, footballers awful tats or the stupid symbols they make with their hands after they score. Probably the latter.

    I don't think he is criticising, more trying to understand and his OP I think made that clear.

    It's just fashionable and footballers can afford it much easier than the man/woman/other in the street. I honestly didn't know it costs thousands, though.

    Imagine the cost of removing the damn things when the same people get a lot older. Removing that Swastika from my forehead was expensive enough...

    fascinating numbers PB, I would have thought for 25-39 it would have been higher than 30%

    I find that really sad. Women being judged differently to men. Surely it would depend on the tattoo and where it is rather than the gender of the person. I suppose some women dont like men with tattoos but I find it a bit of a sweeping statement.

    I say this as a woman with tattoos

    Costs a lot more than a few hundred pound for a full sleeve. Wouldn't even get a half sleeve for that in most shops.

    How much is a few hundred? if it's nearer 1 thousand then that's still a few hundred is it not, the point still stands it'll cost a lot of dosh I haven't got right now.

    Footballers tend to be sheep like in their thinking so when tats galore started to take hold then it quickly became commonplace in the game.

    Theres one very prominent player that I believe has zero tattoos. Whereas Messi might be covered head to toe in ink, his arch rival Ronaldo is still completely free of them.

    Always been impressed by that, not sure why but good on Ronaldo, a leader and most definitely not a sheep.

    Don't think that's a fair assessment at all. Football is full of young people with the disposable income available to pay for some purely aesthetic things, such as hair transplants and tattoos, that other young professionals can't afford or justify. Casting footballers as being sheep is just a sweeping generalisation.

    Can't understand how Ronaldo should be given any particular credit for not having tattoos - he should be focusing on, allegedly, treating women better. Mbappe, Robben, Haaland, Manť, Modric, Bale, Son, and Lewandowski, to add just a few to your list. Can genuinely think of more prominent players without tats than with them.

    I've got no tattoos myself, but like with all art, there's some that I like the look of and some that I don't.

    On the Ronaldo bit, I think I once read that he doesn't have tattoos so as to maximise the number of times he can donate blood... No idea if you can't give blood for a while after getting a tattoo, or if it's just completely made up though.

    I canít stand tattoos myself and think they look so tacky now that theyíre so mainstream. I agree with the poster aboveís sheep like comment. They do nothing for me but each to their own.

    I mean, if thatís the case itís a pretty phenomenal thing to do.

    A previous poster mentioned something about questionable conduct with women, what was that?

    I agree, I have a female colleage, she has sleeves and to be honest they are excellent art work, they are a work of art and I love art, I love the various footballer tattoos, each to their own

    Not a big fan of tattoos either , mate , brother and myself said we would get a Hibs tattoo when we win the Scottish Cup ,we were in our twenties at the time .
    After the cup win and in my fifties , 6 hours of pain and a cost £380 have my tattoo.
    Still waiting on the other two getting there's , it would need to be something like winning the league before I would even think of another one.
