Some of Griezmann’s most on-show tattoos can be found across the knuckles of his right hand. There the letters H, O, P and E spell out the word “HOPE,” serving as a source of motivation for the forward.

Griezmann has another four-letter word spelled out on the side of his right arm: FAME. This is said to be a reference to the Chris Brown album of the same name, an abbreviation of “Forgiving All My Enemies.”

This tattoo is rarely seen as it is located on Griezmann’s right bicep, but whenever he does get his upper arms out you can see a tattoo of Jesus Christ. Alongside this image is a Christ the Redeemer illustration.
