Arsenal forward Theo Walcott recently posted a picture on Twitter showing off his new tattoo that reads “Om Namah Shivaya” running vertically on his back, one of the most well-known mantras of Hinduism that is used to revere Lord Shiva.

The 28-year-old footballer posted the image of his new tattoo with an accompanying text - “Open your heart, shed fear, hate or envy, to experience everlasting joy & happiness.”

Many fans lauded the English footballer for his new tattoo. However, there was a small spelling error in the tattoo that Walcott flaunted. While many fans lashed out at the grammatical mistakes, some broke the mantra down for him.



There were a few creative fans who saw the funnier side of Walcott's tattoo:



Walcott, who has over the years shown his love for tattoos, had earlier inked four words - “Beautiful, Blessed, Strong, Intelligent” in Sanskrit on his right wrist. The words are dedicated to his family.

After the 4-3 win against Leicester City on Saturday in the opening game of the 2017/18 Premier League season, Arsenal will take on Stoke City on Saturday, 19th August at the bet365 stadium in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England.
