How Many Tattoo Does Thiago Silva Have? Their Meaning And Design

This article was last updated by on

The Brazilian legend Thiago Silva has kept the tattoos on his body to a number we can count with only one hand. One of the tattoos of the former PSG defender is dedicated to his mom.

Raised by his mother, Angela Silva, in a harsh environment in Brazil, Thiago Silva never would’ve thought he would make it this far. But with his talent, nothing was impossible for the Chelsea defender.

The very first season he came to Stamford Bridge, the veteran defender lifted the Champions League trophy. And even in the ongoing season where Chelsea has been abysmal, Silva is trying his best to hold the fort. 

Under their caretaker manager, Frank Lampard, Chelsea hasn’t seen much improvement and is looking to end the season in the bottom half of the table. 

Thiago Silva Tattoos: Meanings & Design

The Chelsea defender hasn’t had a new inking on his body for a long time. One of the first inks on his body was seen during his time in PSG with Zlatan and others. 

One of the eye-catching tattoos of Thiago Silva is on his right arm. The defender has a tattoo of a colorful carp that signifies courage, strength, and determination.

These three words can be associated with Silva, who faced an uphill battle with various circumstances.

But as the seasons progressed, Silva hoarded the limelight as one of the top defenders in the world. At one point, he held the record for the most expensive transfer for a defender. 

One of his other tattoos is on his left arm sleeves. A saying in Portuguese, which his mom would hang on the front door of their home, has been written on Silva’s left arm.

“I don’t own the world, but I am the son of the owner,” is the saying we can see on his left arm. 

The Chelsea defender hasn’t been seen with any other tattoos except from these two. Thiago certainly looks like a strategist when it comes to tattoos. 

And unlike many other soccer players, who get several tattoos with no meaning whatsoever, Silva is careful when it comes to inking. 

Thiago Silva Family Life With Wife Belle Silva

Thiago Silva has been married to his wife, Belle Silva, for the past 17 years. 

Like her husband, Belle hails from Brazil and is a digital creator. On Instagram, Belle has a following of 654k and is usually seen rocking up to Stamford Bridge in stylish attires. 

The better half of Thiago Silva is also seen making match-day vlogs and uploading them on her Instagram handle.

Since she arrived in London, Belle has become a controversial figure. She took a swipe against former Chelsea manager Graham Potter and questioned his managerial tactics. 

Belle has also chosen unkind words such as “maggot” to describe Chelsea striker Timo Werner. She also demanded her husband be more respected as he played a vital role in Chelsea winning the Champions League in the 2020 season. 

The Brazilian couple has two sons-Isago and Iago da Silva. Their eldest son, Isago, 14, plays for the Chelsea youth team and is already creating a buzz with his performances.
