Moyes Out! and the Strangest Fan Tattoos

    Following Manchester United's dismal performance against Olympiacos in the Champions League, the discontent around the appointment of David Moyes as manager is increasing.

    As the Scotsman loses even his staunchest supporters, one fan has taken a drastic measure, getting "Moyes Out!" tattooed on his derriere.

    This permanent dedication to a temporary situation leads our list of the strangest fan tattoos... 

The City Fan's Skull

    During Manchester City's 1-0 win over Stoke on Tuesday, a City fan with a heavily decorated cranium was spotted.

    Highlights include the Premier League trophy, an old-style crest on his crown and his favourite team's name written in classy script across his forehead.  

The City Fan's Premature European Celebration

    A few years ago, a Manchester City fan and Stephen Ireland doppelgänger decided it would be a good idea to pre-empt Manchester City's 2011 Champions League glory with a permanent etching on his arm.  

    That season, the Citizens only made the Europa League final 16. 

The Jurgen Klopp Back Tatt

    Take a bow, Borussia Dortmund fan, Martin Hueschen. 

    In 2011, Hueschen celebrated BvB's title success by getting a roaring Jurgen Klopp tattooed across his back, along with the Bundesliga shield. 

    It's terrifying. 

The Jupp Heynckes Appreciation Calf

    Jupp Heynckes broke German records last season, leading his unstoppable side to an unprecedented treble. 

    To show his appreciation, a Danish postman named Niklas Dini spent €200 getting an image of the 68-year-old on his calf.

    The artist was a little generous in the forehead department. 

The Shady Brendan Rodgers

    Klopp and Heynckes may have earned tattoo tributes, but Brendan Rodgers? Not so much.

    The quote underneath this moody-looking representation of the Liverpool manager is a Rodgers classic:

    "I’ve always said that you can live without water for many days, but you can’t live for a second without hope."

    A quote about envelopes would have been better. 

The Everton Fan's Liverpool Tribute

    Sometimes, strange football tattoos are done with the best intentions.

    In January, diehard Everton fan Matty Bowman had the main refrain from the Liverpool anthem "You'll never walk alone" tattooed across the top of his back.

    Bowman wasn't confused about which part of Merseyside his loyalty laid in—he agreed to get the tatt to raise money for a sick young boy with a rare digestive condition. 

Neymar Has Never Looked Better

    It's hard to tell if this tattoo is a tribute to Neymar or Nirvana/Foo Fighters guitarist Pat Smear

    The Brazilian is famously vain, so he probably would not approve of this unfaithful representation of his visage. 

A Design for Deuce

    There are few words to describe this Clint Dempsey neck tattoo, found on a hardcore Seattle Sounders fan.

    If we were to pick a few words though, they would be "bizarre" and "terrible."

Touro's Right Foot

    Wow.

    This misspelt tribute to Kolo Toure is almost as bad as some of the Ivorian's recent clangers for Liverpool. 

The Eeverton Fan!

    A good rule of thumb if you are getting your club's name etched on your back: Get a mirror to make sure they are spelling it correctly before they start.
