Two years ago I featured some Tottenham tattoo's as a mild interest in between the more 'serious stuff.' Like a number of the subjects that Talking has tackled it led to more images arriving in the old in-box, and always good to know your out there. Anyway in the summer I complied a second set and thought that would be it! I had not planned another set thinking we must of covered every angle but if any 'different' designs turned up I'd slip them in somewhere.
Then they just kept coming. So here for your mid-week coffee break diversion one last set where put you have put your skin where the heart is.
It certainly does give a new meaning to 'Tottenham till I die.'
Once again a big thanks to everyone who sent them in, the artists and the models, feel free to tell us that's me or I did that!
A little trivia slipped in to fill the gaps.
I know Dave Mackay like myself didn't like this picture (above left) as it doesn't really show the real him. He was hard but never dirty. Have to say this is well worthy of inclusion.
Right - Another (I expect) unique image. With Bill Nicholson and our two Argentinian heroes along with Wembley towers.
During the Double season Bill Nicholson was asked if he felt the tension, he answered what tension? Its just a job of work if you keep losing you get the chop if you keep winning you win a trophy.
Above right, and social media went into meltdown debating Ryan Mason's tatt. Left Danny Rose decides on the text approach. Anyone get near enough to read it feel free to share.
Bobby Smith said about Dave Mackay - Dave was a dynamic personality and his strength and determination won us many games.
Jimmy Greaves once said of Bobby Smith , he wanted a ball in early so that he could clatter the goalie and then he could settle down to play his game.
A 'right arm full' left at The Lane. While in the center Clint Dempsey shows off his design.
Paul Miller describing his center back partner Graham Roberts said - a great competitor a great tackler with a will to win a never say die attitude and he could play by the way. We enjoyed the physical challenge because in those days you had to be like that.
Danny Blanchflower once said “I am not disillusioned with the game because I never had too many illusions to start with.”
Paul Gascoigne on the beach.
Pat Jennings on his early days. "Many children dream of sporting glory. I know I did when I used to go to Windsor Park, Belfast, to watch Northern Ireland play. I remember vividly one afternoon climbing on the lower rung of a floodlight pylon in torrential rain and watching a game against Scotland. I left the ground soaked to the skin, but I was too busy with my thoughts of one day being good enough to represent my country to bother about a minor detail like possible pneumonia."
I will leave you with this one, now you know why the article was called the Last Tattoo. It certainly looks real. It may not win the OMG award but it walks off with the, What the...trophy.
