Lisandro Martinez Tattoos: Meanings & Design

A tattoo is a representation or a marking of something significant for any individual. They are more than a storyteller, don’t you agree?

Well, the scenario is no different for the Red Devils player Lisandro Martinez who carries the United logo since his transfer in the 2022-23 season.

The Argentina-born soccer player has numerous tattoos over his body- specifically on his hands & legs.

Mostly on his Instagram & football games, fans often get attracted to a tattoo of a lion’s face on his right forearm.

Online sources suggest that Martinez got the exquisitely detailed “lion” tattoo in 2017, which symbolizes his fierce devotion on the field.

In May 2022, Lisandro’s other body inking came into the light- this time, it was a portrait of a Buddha’s face embedded in a Pagoda-styled temple on his right arm. That tattoo is above his signature lion tattoo.

And many assume that his Buddha tattoo represents the importance of meditation and peace to him.

Anytime he wears a sleeveless top, tattoos on his right hand are visible.

Also, fans often query, “When did Lisandro get his first tattoo?”. Seems it was back in 2015, according to his Instagram posts, when Martinez flexed a tattoo on the ankle of his left leg.

He has a tattoo on each of his legs. Martinez often wears socks in the majority of the images he posts to his social media platforms, so it makes it difficult to see those inked body arts.
