Burnley Goalkeeper Joe Hart Gets Huge 'Full Armour' Tattoo
Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart has shown off a brand new 'armour' tattoo to his followers on social media and well, it's received a mixed response from fans.
The 32-year-old went back to his hometown in Shrewsbury to get the inking, created by artist Hanumantra.
Last year, the goalkeeper decided to get a 'blackwork' tattoo on his leg, which matches his latest piece.

Hart revealed his delight at the new artwork, saying it's "not everyone's taste but it definitely represents me."
"You are the man @hanumantra thank you, this is the only time of year I could take this on so I appreciate you fitting me in and smashing it." he said via his official Instagram.
"I got my armour on now... let's see what's next. Not everyone's taste I understand that but this definitely represents me and thank you for making it happen."
So what is 'blackwork'? Tattoo artist Hanumatra Lemar explained the process on his website:
"Blackwork is a tattoo choice, it's a lifestyle and it's a philosophy, believing that less really is more and understanding that we should not be afraid to stand out in world full of people trying to fit in." he said.
"Every tattoo Hanumantra undertakes is exclusively created for the client. The time is taken to handcraft each individual design, conveying and amplifying the inner strength of spirit of the wearer.
"This allows them to feel empowered and protected as though a layer of tattoo armour is placed upon them, creating a modern day warrior ready for today's battles."
