A bouncer has decided to mark being bitten on the leg during a pub fight by getting 'Suarez was here' tattooed around the permanent scar.
The Liverpool Echo reports that the pub doorman, who asked to remain anonymous, decided to get the inkwork to draw attention away from the bite.
The Barcelona forward has been banned three times during his career for biting, including most recently during the 2014 World Cup where he bit Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini.
A bouncer who was bitten on the leg by a drunk marked the incident by tattooing the words ‘Suarez was here’ around his scar.
“I’m actually scarred and it looks like a permanent bruise. I had the Suarez tattoo put on, even though I’m not a Liverpool fan, as shortly after that he was done for biting," he said while adding that he also went for health tests after the incident.
“I wanted to try and draw attention away from the actual bite mark so I had something put round it so people will mainly focus on the tattoo.”
The bite occurred in November 2013 when a member of the public was tackled to the ground by two door supervisors at a bar in Accrington when he tried to get back in to the pub after being thrown out.
Burnley Crown Court heard how during the ‘struggle’ on the floor one of the doormen was bitten on the leg by, who later threw a bottle at a wall causing a shard of glass to cut the same doorman.
He was given 16-week jail term, suspended for 12 months and also given a six-month supervision requirement.
