These tattoos show true dedication to the Olympic Games


If you have a tattoo, you've probably been asked at least once or twice for your reasons behind getting inked.

Well, for these athletes and their Olympics-themed tatts, it's really quite obvious.

Here are some of the most striking, colourful and, TBH, damn-right proud designs we've seen that commemorate competing in the biggest sporting event in the world.

US wrestler Jordan Burroughs has quite the collection going on.

This one is obvs a Rio-inspired tatt.

In fact, quite a few athletes seem to have got them just in time for heading to Brazil.

There's many variations of designs including the five Olympic rings.

American weightlifter Holley Mangold even went for the rings on the side of her head.

Then there's this huge tat, belonging to Canadian curler Eric Harnden, who competed in the 2014 Winter Olympics.

And this guy? Well, he's maybe gone a step too far.

Now that is dedication to the Olympics.
