Arsenal star Ben White’s tattoos revealed, from butterfly on back and romantic heart on thumb to THROAT inkings
ARSENAL star Ben White is committed to body ink.
The England defender, 25, has several tattoos adorning his chiselled body.

His most recent bit of work is a butterfly etched on his back by A Star Tattoos, which trended on TikTok.
In the summer, he showed off matching ‘I Love You’ tats with fiancee Milly Adams that they had done shortly after their engagement.
While, written on his neck is the word ‘Shine’ in a smart black font.
SunSport takes a look at his tattoos, and what they they could mean.
Written underneath an inspiring message on his back, White introduced a butterfly to his torso.
Although the meaning hasn’t been disclosed, it could certainly signify the idea of soaring high.
Like his football team, Ben is flying at the moment.
It was created by A Star Tattoos – a side business of A Star Barbers – who famously trim Jack Grealish and Paul Pogba.
White is a regular with them, and they have created several for him.

An inspiring word, White’s body is covered in positive messages.
And on his neck he has the word ‘Shine’ inscribed.
Next to that, there’s a small cross.
We don’t know if White is religious – but when he grew up in Dorset he went to school Queen Elizabeth’s, which preaches strong Church of England ethics.

A massive tattoo of a lion’s eyes stretches across White’s chest.
The lion is a popular tattoo for professional footballers – with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Memphis Depay sporting them.
Again, it symbolises bravery and strength.
It was a tattoo that seemingly inspired his Arsenal team-mate Emile Smith Rowe, who later got a lion sleeve on his arm.

Last summer, White got engaged to stunning fiancee Milly Adams.
The loved-up couple celebrated by getting matching ‘I Love You’ messages written on their hands.
Shortly after, they were spotted enjoying a romantic holiday in an unknown sun-drenched location.
While aboard a rented yacht, they showed off a new set of matching designs.
This time, they both had super-cute hearts on their thumbs.
Also on Ben’s hand you will find his star sign – Libra, as well as the date 1959.
That could be the year a relative was born, although it’s not clear.

Born to do it
Another easily identifiable tattoo features on White’s back.
Just below his neck, he has the year 1997 inked on him.
That signifies the year he was born.
White, at 25, has plenty of years of football ahead of him.
And that also means, he still has more time to get even more ink.
