Messi meets a fan with name, number tattooed on back

Star Online Report

Lionel Messi has an army of fans across the world, but one Argentina supporter who wanted to show his love of Leo went a step beyond, reports UK’s Bleacher Report.
In a remarkable three-minute video entitled, "The passion for Messi has no limits," we see the moment a fan by the name of Hernan Baigorria got Messi's name and iconic "10" shirt number tattooed onto his back.
According to Ole (Spanish, translated by 101 Great Goals), Messi was eager to see the tattoo for himself, and as you can see in the video above, he did go on to meet Baigorria in Messi's hometown of Rosario.
He also posted a photo with his fan on his Facebook page.
Messi led Argentina to the World Cup final, but he could not help his side overcome Germany.
