And they also had the words “Anda Palla, Bobo” written next to the image – which translates to “Keep moving, idiot”.
This is the phrase Messi reportedly shouted at Dutch striker Wout Weghorst following Argentina’s dramatic victory on Friday.
The Barcelona legend brilliantly set-up his side’s first goal against Holland, before he converted a penalty to double their lead in the 73rd minute.
But a last-gasp Weghorst brace somehow sent the match to extra time and then penalties.
Yet Van Gaal’s men could not get over the line, with Emi Martinez saving two of their spot kicks as Argentina claimed a 4-3 win in the shootout.
Following the victory, Messi went over to Van Gaal and assistant coach Edgar Davids and jumped up before cupping his ears.
It is a celebration which was used by former Argentine playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme – one he took from an Italian TV show from the 1960s.
Messi’s reaction sparked fury on the Dutch bench as a fiery match ended with a post-game brawl and some ugly scenes down the tunnel.
Speaking after the game, Argentina’s captain then explained his decision to rile up the Holland players and staff.
Messi said: “I feel disrespected by Van Gaal after his pregame comments and some Dutch players spoke too much during the game.”
Now the moment will never be forgotten by one football fan after their decision to tattoo it permanently onto their skin.
