The 34-year-old, who plays for Argentine club Independiente, unveiled the amazing lion tattoo in photos having suffered from COVID-19 in July.
Speaking with TyC Sports, he said;
I had coronavirus in July and at the end of August my hair started to fall out abruptly.
It fell from all parts of my body. I knew it was a sequel to Covid.
Sosa also opened up on the nickname Independiente fans gave him since he showed off his new lion tattoo.
I’ve always liked lions, that’s why I wanted to tattoo one on the back of my head. They tell me I look like Hitman, and I like him
I only had a few left, so I decided to shave. I’ve always liked lions, that’s why I wanted to tattoo one on the back of my head.
The goalkeeper does not have any other designs on his body which makes the back of his head as his first choice all the more surprising.
Sosa expressed that the tattoo gives him various options as he can always choose to regrow his hair to cover up the inking if he wants later.
My tattoo didn’t hurt. When the tattoo artist started I said ‘have you started? Is that all the pain?’ The truth was I got along pretty well, it was six or seven hours. I have the lion back there.
If at any time I want my hair to grow back, I’ll cover it and if I want to show it off, I’ll shave it.
