In case you weren’t sure, Jermaine Jones loves the United States of America a lot. So much so that the former Schalke 04 mdifielder got this red, white and blue (and probably very painful) tattoo on his knee:
Jones isn’t the only United States men’s national team player that’s had his American pride inked on his body. Terrence Boyd got this bad boy about a year ago, showing off his commitment to the stars and stripes:
Other players, like Clint Dempsey and John Brooks, display their USA pride by representing their home towns on their skin:
Dempsey will always be a Texas boy at heart. (Image: The Denim Kit)
Brooks has Germany (where he was born) on one elbow, and Illinois (his father’s home state) on the other. This was well before his ill-advised gigantic back tattoo that got him benched (Image: Men in Blazers).
It’s probably a safe bet that there will be a few more USA players tatted up after this summer’s World Cup in Brazil — nothing like a bit of body art to commemorate a special event.
