Gekas’ wrong tattoo that surprised Japanese and social media (pic)

Gekas’ wrong tattoo that surprised Japanese and social media (pic)

Millions of people around the world watched yesterday's game between Greece and Japan for the third group of Brazil's World Cup.

It might have been one of the most important matches of recent years, but for many people it was one of the most boring 90 minutes of their lives... So boring that in the Far East, particularly in Japan, the tattoo of Fanis Gekas was the most important issue on websites and social media. More specifically, the... artwork that was hand painted by the forward of our national team is wrong, something that didn't go unnoticed in Asian countries during the World Cup of South Africa in 2010. As many websites comment: "Gekas wrongly didn't cover the tattoo with a new one, since the existing is completely wrong".

What's the mistake of the tattoo of the Greek?
As the story goes, Gekas wanted to write that he is a "cold killer". Makes sense, if you consider his position on the pitch and his many goals, but the tattoo actually writes that he's a "killer of cold weather". And to speak the language properly and to present you what he needs to write on the tattoo he always dreamed of, he must erase 寒冷殺人魔and write 冷酷な殺人鬼.
