The real reason why football star, Cristiano Ronaldo refuses to get a tattoo has been revealed.
Where many footballers use their hard-earned cash to draw tattoos on their skin the Real Madrid forward has refrained because he regularly donates blood, it is believed.
The Portugal captain, who isn’t shy in showing off his physique, has kept his body in impeccable condition over the years – which has also helped with his performances on the pitch.
Ronaldo has spoken of his desire to donate blood on more than one occasion, and in 2015 he told Eurosport :-
“We can all make a difference by donating blood.
Each donation can benefit up to three people in emergency situations and for long-term medical treatments.”
“That’s why I am enthusiastic, to the importance of blood donation and to encourage people around the world to become lifelong blood donors and help save lives.”
The 33-year-old also tweeted on June 13 and December 30 2017 raising awareness for donating blood.
According to Give Blood, donors who get tattoos must wait four months after getting inked before doing so.
And Ronaldo doesn’t just stop at blood, he’s a bone marrow donor too.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner decided to make the call after Carlos Martins’ son fell ill.
“It was the time when Carlos [Martins] was with us on the national team.
He told us about the problem with his son and we, the players, showed great unity to help him and his son because we knew it was a very complicated situation,” Ronaldo told radio station Cadena Cope.
“[Donating bone marrow] is something a lot of people think is a difficult thing to do but it’s nothing more than drawing blood and doesn’t hurt.
“I did it many years ago and if I had to do it again I would because this is a very serious disease for many children and we need to help them.”
