Top Tattoos: A rugby XV of tattooed players

Rugby team of tattooed players. A start to a new era where almost every Rugby player is getting tattooed.

Some tattoos have a story or meaning behind it. Others are just meant to be. To share the stories of their life with their fans, to show their love towards something, rugby players prefer to cover their body with ink instead of writing a book about it.

Some tattoos are really eye-catching and some tattoos really make us laugh!

We bring to you the ‘Tattooed Rugby Club’ which includes the rugby players who have extra-ordinary ink and designs on their body.
