When you think of London, the first iconic images that occur to you are black cabs, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye—maybe even the Gherkin.

But that doesn't necessarily mean you'd tattoo them on your back.

Light-welterweight boxer Ashley Theophane has done exactly that, however, and the result is a back full of London imagery.

Theophane, who has trained in Floyd Mayweather's Las Vegas gym and is represented by Money May, revealed the design on his back with a simple caption: "London's got my back."

London's Got My Back! 🇬🇧
