Svetlana Kuznetova has a tattoo on her left forearm that reads “Only God is our judge,”
in Russian. And on her right bicep she has a tattoo in English that reads “Pain doesn’t
kill me — I kill pain.” Li Na has a red rose inked on her chest, as
romantic gesture for her husband, when asked about it she said “I had been with him for
three years when I had it done — I wanted to do something for him and for us. I chose
a rose because it’s romantic and having it on my chest means I have given my heart
to him.” The most tatted up player in tennis Janko
Tipsarevic has one tattoo that that says “Beauty will save the world.” His other tattoos
include one on his right shoulder which translates as ‘genius’ and one on his left shoulder
of his star sign Cancer. Another tattoo features the names of all his family members. Tipsarevic
got his first tattoo when he was only 17. In reference to his many tattoos Tipsarevic
said, “My appearance isn’t anything to do with the kind of person that I am inside.
Maybe it looks aggressive to other people but I don’t care.”
The recently retired Kim Clijster has a letter ‘B’ tattoo on her wedding ring finger
for her husband Brian. Clijsters had to remove her wedding ring to play and got the tattoo
as a symbol of her marriage when she wasn’t wearing the ring. Clijsters also has ‘Jada’,
their daughter’s name, tattooed on the inside of her left wrist.
