PICTURE: Does Reading's Noel Hunt Have The Worst Tattoo in Sport ?

Noel Hunt Tattoo Reduced

Viewers of the Manchester United v Reading match on Saturday got a full camera shot of Noel Hunt's extravagant artwork. We don't think much of it...

David Beckham, what have you started? 

Since the former Manchester United man began using his body as a sketchbook back in the mid-90s, seeing Premier League players denigrate their torso's with all sorts of artwork has become the norm.

Daniel Agger of Liverpool famously got the YNWA initials of You'll Never Walk Alone tattooed on his knuckles last year, while DJ Campbell has almost his entire neck covered with artwork.

Some are very good, and some, Noel Hunt, are very bad. We are sure the meaning behind it and the religious connotations are worthy, but from an artistic point of view it just does not look good. The worst tattoo in football belonging to a professional? You tell us.

The worst football related piece of body art we have seen belongs to a hapless Manchester City fan, who got a little ahead of himself when Wayne Rooney was linked with the club a couple of years back. Oops.

But the worst sports-related tattoo we have seen belongs to this fan of NFL team Pittsburgh Steelers - who got quite literally a terrible towel emblazoned on his chest. Best for him he stays anonymous.

What is the worst sports related tattoo you have seen?
