England forward Raheem Sterling has an array of tattoos on his arms, as well as a huge inking on his leg.

Sterling’s gun tattoo on his right leg is clearly visible, stretching from his kneecap almost to his ankle and it has received plenty of criticism since he first got it.

The 23 year old defended his inking earlier this year, saying it reflects a vow he made “never to touch a gun” after his father was shot dead when he was younger.

But what other tattoos does the sportsman have and what do they mean?

Palm trees

On his right forearm, Sterling has an inking of two palm trees starting from his wrist.

Palm trees are thought to represent wisdom and goodness and palm branches are sometimes considered to symbolise God.

Just below the crook of his arm, the football star has an intricate eye etched into his skin.

Tattoo Easily explain an eye inking represents a number of meanings but it can also mean the ability to see beyond the obvious or even into the future.

It can also be a symbol of protecting against evil influences.

During an interview with the Independent in June, Raheem revealed he has a tattoo of the No 10 squad number, as this is the number he is wearing throughout the World Cup in Russia.

He explained: “I’ve always wanted to wear the number 10 for England. It’ something from my childhood. My two favourite numbers are seven and 10, from playing at QPR in the midfield area.”

Sterling added: “I feel much more happy wearing that shirt and to be doing that at a World Cup with my country gives me that huge joy and feeling I can go and do well.”
