Guy Gets Tattoo Of Harry Kane's Face And 'World Cup Winner'

f you've been out and about anywhere in England right now, you'll already know that the nation is suffering from an insatiable bout of World Cup fever.

The Three Lions take on Croatia tomorrow evening in a bid to reach their first World Cup final since 1966, and we all know what happened that year.

Well, instead of waiting until literally this Sunday evening before getting a 'World Cup Winners 2018' tattoo, several people have gone under the needle already.


Well, here's another one. Teddy Allen has had Harry Kane's face, alongside the worlds 'Sir Harry, World Cup Winner 2018' indelibly inked onto his thigh.

You've got to admire his confidence. There is still a lot of football to be played before he can rest easy in the knowledge that his tattoo is factually correct.

Teddy, from Staffordshire, has also already had 'It's Coming Home' tattooed onto his arm.

The 30-year-old dad of two told the Stoke Sentinel: "It's the team England have this year - such a young team and they're gelling together much better than any of the teams I've seen before. That's why I think we'll win. I've thought it from day one, but especially after our 6-1 win against Panama.

"I had Harry Kane tattooed because he's the main man, and the one that will do it for us.

"He is my favourite player, even though I'm a Stoke City fan and I hate the goals he's put in against us. But I'm prepared to put that behind me for the country. Even the haters and pessimists have got behind this World Cup.

"I haven't thought as far ahead to the final yet, but I'm sure we will come up with something."

I mean, they've not even beaten Croatia yet, and they aren't exactly a bunch of mugs. They've got two of the world's finest midfielders in their side and shouldn't be taken lightly.

That said, Teddy has considered the idea that they might not win, and has come up with a strategy.

He continued: "If we don't win, I might have a tattoo of a red rubber stamp saying 'void' over the Harry Kane. Or I'm thinking of just going with it.

"I know quite a few people have had similar tattoos for the World Cup and if we aren't the winners, it's just one of those things. I will be disappointed though as a fan.

"I already have both arms covered in tattoos, as well as both my legs."

The tattooist who gave him the ink at Pedantic Ink in Fenton is called Bradley Fleming. He said that he'd mentioned it to his mate, but was then surprised with a call from Teddy saying that he'd like to get it done for real.

Bradley said: "It all started as a joke. I thought that it would be funny, if we beat Sweden, to have 'World Cup champions' - even if we do not win the World Cup.

"But I do believe that we will win and that football is coming home. If it's Belgium against England in the final we can definitely win."


CAN win, yes. In the same way that you CAN have laser removal surgery.

But still, we've all heard and we all know what's going to happen.

It's coming home.
