The Reason Cristiano Ronaldo Refuses To Get A Tattoo Might Surprise You
July 18, 2016
Athletes love their ink – but not Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, who is adamant he will never get a tattoo.
His reason may surprise you.
Regarded by many as an arrogant pretty boy, Ronaldo has made substantial donations to help children with debilitating diseases.
That's right, he passes on the permanent ink so he can continue to donate blood.
In many countries around the world, tattoos can impact a person's eligibility to give blood due to risks of cross-contamination and hepatitis.
"I don't have tattoos because I donate blood very often," Ronaldo told the Diretta News.
In 2015, Ronaldo was named the world's most charitable sportsperson, and he's showing no signs of slowing down.
In June, he donated his €600,000 Champions League win bonus to good causes.
One month later after winning the Euro Cup with Portugal, he donated his £275,000 Euro bonus to a Kids Cancer foundation.
