What do Mykhailo Mudryk's tattoos mean? Chelsea and Ukraine star covered in religious ink with faith a key part of his character

Chelsea ace Mykhailo Mudryk will be looking to star for Ukraine at Euro 2024 and the winger boasts quite the collection of interesting tattoos.

Mudryk has had an underwhelming stint at Chelsea so far following his £88million move from Shakhtar Donetsk.

But he will be Ukraine’s main weapon at the Euros as they face Belgium, Slovakia and Romania in Group E.

What do Mudryk’s tattoos mean?

Mudryk has several tattoos scattered around his body and a lot of them are deeply connected to religion.

One of the main pieces of ink that stands out is the one on Mudryk’s neck.

It reads ‘Only Jesus’, with an infinity sign placed just above.

The 22-year-old’s main pieces are engraved into his body and a few of them appear to have religious connections as well.

The one on the right side of his body is another linked to Christianity and is a passage containing a letter to God.

It reads: “Dear God, if today I lose my hope, remind me that your plans are better than my dreams.”

And on the other side of his chest, there is a heart and football inked.

This tattoo is self-explanatory and it’s clearly directly linked to Mudryk’s love of football.

He has ‘Talent ain’t enough’ inked across his throat and there are also two tattoos on the back of his left and right arm.

The Ukrainian international also has several pieces inked on his hands and all have clear connections to Mudryk’s faith.

He has a cross tattooed on his left thumb and then the letters ‘F’ and ‘E’ inscribed on the inside of his right and left palm.

When you put these two together in the form of a prayer, it creates the Portuguese word for ‘faith’.

And on one of his right fingers, the words ‘Thank you God’ are written.

And the forward also has the word ‘Again’ inscribed six times on his right leg, which likely serves as inspiration for Mudryk to keep getting better and better.

Clearly, faith and religion play a big part in Mudryk’s life and he has expressed that faith in the form of some unique tattoos.
