Who has the best ink on Atlanta United?

Taking a closer look at some of Atlanta United players’ tattoos 

Sam Jones making a huge mistake

It’s an international break, which means CRAZY WHACKY #CONTENT. Since I have tattoos and I like to judge things, I decided I was qualified enough to pick the best tattoo on an Atlanta United player. Obviously, I’m not going to mention ALL the tattoos the players have since between Josef Martínez and Greg Garza they have around 200 of them. I’ll choose my favorites from the most visible tats of the bunch (and then pick a winner, of course).

Miguel Almirón - “El tiempo de Dios es perfecto” means “ God’s timing is perfect.” A simple and lowkey tattoo for our simple and lowkey superstar that better start finding the perfect timing on his shots soon.

Josef Martínez - Of all the tattoos Josef has I choose the stars on the shoulders because I also have tattoos of stars on my shoulders and it’s cool to have something in common with a Venezuelan hat-trick machine. Also for once he’s smiling and it’s great.

Greg Garza – Garza has so many amazing tattoos to pick from but I decided to go with the dog paws tattoo, I understand that some people may not like tattoos but EVERYONE loves dogs. I’m going to ignore the fact that he probably got the tattoo in honor of his former team Xolos de Tijuana. Anyway, dog paws are cute no matter the reason.

Mikey Ambrose- “Busca la forma” means “Find a way” in Spanish. Pretty good motto to live by and it shows Mikey knows three words in Spanish and that’s more than most DSS writers.

Andrew Carleton- The 17-year-old Georgia native only has one tattoo, its Roman numerals that translates to the date he officially signed with The Five Stripes. This tattoo shows how much it means for him to be part of this team and that makes this tattoo a thousand times cooler.

Franco Escobar- His Joker tattoo is so over the top, scary and shocking that makes me love it so much. Also, he picked Heath Ledger’s Joker instead of whatever Jared Leto tried to do in the Suicide Squad and that really matters.

...and the winner is....

Tito Villalba- The lion is Orlando City’s mascot. Tito loves to score against them. Orlando City still winless this season. So, amazing tattoo for many reasons, my favorite.

Now you tell us yours.
