Neymar's New Batman and Spiderman Tattoos Have Caught Twitter's Attention
Batman, spiderman... Neyman?
Batman, spiderman... Neyman?
Brazilian footballer Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, commonly known as Neymar Jr. or simply Neymar, has always been a fan favorite.
The 26-year old, who plays as a forward for French club Paris Saint-Germain and the Brazil national team, is hailed as a star by many, and people liken him to a superhero all the time.
A recent tattoo reveal by the footballer shows how the fan theories may not be far off.
In an Instagram post shared by the tattoo parlour, the football star showed off his back tattoo - of Batman and Spiderman. In a V-shaped formation, Neymar has Spiderman and Batman tattooed on either side of the V.
The particular artwork version of the characters he picked is also significant - the Spiderman is from the original Spiderman trilogy, and the Batman is from The Dark Knight Rises, which are also arguably fan favorites.
However, this is a very obvious Marvel x DC crossover, which fans do not usually approve of. Twitter has been abuzz with reactions since the reveal.

Neymar has just shown off his Batman tattoo. How did he get it? Didn't he fall on the floor of the parlour, writhing, the moment the tattoo artist touched him?— Budhaditya Roy (@budhadityaroy) October 25, 2018
