Brazilian resident Mauricio dos Agnos stuffed a tattoo on his chest, stomach and shoulders with a T-shirt from the shape of the football team Flamengo. The tattoo covers 40% of his body, for her, Agnos had to go 32 times to the tattoo parlor. In total, he spent about 90 hours on the tattoo.

Anos told Vice that he had dreamed of such a tattoo since childhood. His father was against it, but after coming of age, Anos could convince him. Then he stuffed himself on the vulture’s bicep (mascot team) with a shield. In addition to the mascot, Anios had a tattoo with a daughter’s footprint, but she was covered by a T-shirt and the man thinks to fill it in another place.

In 2017, he decided to fill his sports uniform, but decided that it would be too expensive – from 2 to 3 thousand pounds (from 174 thousand to 260 thousand rubles). Then Anos wanted to stuff himself something that would cover his shoulder and chest, but the tattoo artist agreed to make the T-shirt completely for a low price – 165 pounds

The whole process was supposed to take four or five months, but the man had to change the tattoo artist because of disagreements. At that time, he had 30% of the tattoo done, and he started saving money to pay another master, he even sold the motorcycle. According to Anos, then a friend phoned him and offered to pay a part of the tattoo.

Аньос has told, that the wife all over again was against: she was afraid, that on the husband will start to show a finger and to laugh at it, but then has changed the decision. In addition, Agnos has three children: two three-year-old twins and a five-year-old daughter. The older child already understands that there is a tattoo on his father’s body.

People often tell me: make a tattoo with socks, or with a jacket. Maybe I’ll do another tattoo related to Flamengo on my arm or leg. But I will not do such great things anymore.

Anos is not the first fan who stuffs himself a tattoo with his favorite team’s t-shirt. In 2010, Colombian Philip Alvarez filled his T-shirt with Atletico, but he decided to tattoo only the green stripes, and some parts of his torso were not painted.
