10 Must-Have Temporary Tattoos, inspired by your National Rugby League Stars.
Tattoos are a great medium for self-expression and our National Rugby League players are using their tattoos to convey their thoughts, personalities, and eccentricities. Our stars haven't shied away from using their bodies as a canvas; players have etched themselves with every conceivable design ranging from Origin of State numbers, rabbits, children's names to inspirational messages and more. In a sport that is increasingly image-driven, it looks like rugby and tattoos are a match made in sporting heaven.

It is the middle of NRL season and we thought that this is a great time to check out the cool tattoos sported by our rugby stars.

Josh shows his love for tattoos, by getting himself inked on his torso, arms, neck, shoulder, back, and thigh. Even his knuckles display the initials of his family members. The Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks' star has tattoos which include family portraits, tributes, inspirational quotes, and a giant tiger and eagle. Of all the tattoos that Josh sports, this one is our favorite. It conveys what a devoted family man he is. We highly approve!


2. Brenton Lawrence

Brenton's tattoo has a poignant meaning; it commemorates the sacrifice of Australians who have served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. The Titan's star has a strong family connection with the Australian military; his father, grandfather, and brother-in law have all served in the defense forces. A tattoo that speaks a thousand words, indeed.


3. Chris McQueen

Chris may look intimidating on the field with his towering presence, but he is a self-confessed massive nerd off it. Can't believe it? Well, the West Tigers' star loves his X-box, Dungeons and Daggers, Game of Thrones, and Harry Potter. He and his two best friends got the Deathly Hallows symbol tattoo simultaneously. Nerd Alert: A great idea for temporary tattoos for all you Pottermaniacs out there!


4. Joel Thompson

The Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles' star has been outspoken about his turbulent childhood and mental health issues. Joel credits his grandmother Gloria, his wife Amy and his two daughters for being his guardian angels and helping him deal with his inner demons. In this tattoo, he displays his love and dedication to his family. We can't help but get a bit teary-eyed to see one of the most-feared hitters in the NRL, showing his gentle and vulnerable side.



5. Sandor Earl

Sandor has returned to NRL, joining the Melbourne Storm team after a 4-year doping ban. He was earlier popular for his bromance with wayward star Blake Ferguson, and his subsequent ''Dorguson'' arm tattoo. With these 2 motivational tattoos, it looks like Sandor is aiming to put his difficult past behind him. We wish Sandor all the best and hope he moves on to greater heights.



6. Dave Tyrell

If you thought that Superheroes were just fantasy meant for children, wait till you see Rabbitoh's star Dave's tattoo. The Superman buff went from being a Clark Kent at 85 kgs to a Man-of-Steel at 100 plus kgs. He does not need to wear a cape or his undies on the outside of his pants to prove that he's a superman. We heart his tattoo and would gladly sport a temporary superhero tattoo. All gain, zero pain.



7. Mitchell Pearce

The Newcastle Knights' star is a Buddhist at heart, he has a tattoo of the Buddha on his back with the saying ''this too shall pass'' etched in Persian. Being constantly in the limelight, Mitchell believes that yoga and the teachings of the Buddha have helped to bring a balance in his life. On a dreary day, we all need some pick-me-ups. Mitchell's tattoo inspires us to live in the moment and seize the day. A custom printed motivational tattoo sticker is perfect to see you through tough times, we think.



8. Alex Glenn

The ancient Polynesian's used tattoo art that was full of distinctive signs to express their identity and personality. Alex proudly pays tribute to his Polynesian roots through his shoulder tattoo.

Adam has multiple tattoos on his body including a lion's head on his chest, hands clasped in prayer on his bicep, and the cursive name on his neck. But nothing has captured the imagination of his fans better than this bunny tattoo. Social media went into a tizzy trying to understand why the Rabbitoh's star got himself inked on his face. As it turned out, it was a fake temporary tattoo to prove his loyalty to his team! Like Adam, you can support your fav NRL team by getting custom printed fake tattoos too. Certainly not a hare-brained idea!
