Each and every tattoo on Virat’s body has a story to tell and signifies a turning point in the life. Here we look at what each of his tattoo stands for and the interesting stories behind it.

1. Tribal Art on his right forearm:

It was the first ever tattoo that he got inked, it represents his aggression. He had earlier mentioned that at that point of time his intention to get inked was just to show to the world that he was cool and hence chose a tribal design to showcase his aggression.

But little did he knew at that time that he would have many more tattoos in the near future that he could probably relate more to.

2. Scorpio Tattoo on his upper right arm:

Virat Kohli has inked a ‘Scorpio’ on his right bicep. It is his Zodiac sign as he was born on November 5. 

The Scorpions are believed to be strong-willed persons who handle difficulties with courage and bravery. To a person like Virat, who has strived and worked his way towards success these attributes fit in well. He had said that he always wanted to be that person who pushes forward for success and hence decided to make it a part of his body.

3. The Lord Shiva Tattoo on his left forearm:

He has a tattoo of Lord Shiva meditating on Mount Kailash on his left forearm. The reason behind him having it is the fact that he wishes to destroy certain attributes within himself. Lord Shiva is known as the destroyer and the tattoo hence is for the things that Kohli wishes to destroy in him.
