Fans joke that Joe Hart ‘looks like a zebra crossing’ as former England goalkeeper shows off bizarre tattoos live on BBC

FANS have had their say on Joe Hart’s unusual arm tattoos.

The former England No1, 37, hung up his boots earlier this summer following a three-year stint at Celtic.

Freshly retired, Hart signed up to work as a pundit for the BBC at Euro 2024.

Ahead of tonight’s England opener against Serbia, the ex-stopper chatted with Kelly Somers on the pitch in Gelsenkirchen.

Wearing a green polo shirt, Hart’s arm tattoos were visible for viewers at home.

The 75-cap goalkeeper has two black tattoos on his arm, resembling “armbands”.

Spotting Hart’s tattoos, one fan wrote on social media: “Outrageous tattoos from Joe Hart. He looks like a zebra crossing for goodness sake.”

While a second posted: “Genuinely thought his arm was in a cast or something.”

A third commented: “Looks class in a goalie top. Ridiculous in civilian gear.”

And another joked: “I thought it was an injury.”


In 2019 Hart admitted that his new “body armour” tattoos were not for everyone.

He wrote on social media at the time: “This is the only time of year I could take this on so I appreciate you fitting me in and smashing it!


“I got my armour on now… let’s see what’s next.

“Not everyone’s taste I understand that but this definitely represents me and thank you for making it happen.”

After announcing that the 2023-24 season would be his last as a player, Hart said back in February: “As of June, I’m going to stop playing professional football.

“This is something that I’ve thought about for a while. There’s no right or wrong time but the way this club works that I’m playing at at the moment there’s so much on it.

“There’s so much heart and soul poured into what we’re doing as a football club, with the grand scheme of the club, the support base and the conversations that go on around it.

“There’s obviously a conversation around the goalkeeping position for next season so I just thought it was important with the blessing of the club.

“I’ve had conversations with the club, with Brendan (Rodgers), with Stevie Woods. That if we get the message out it leaves one less thing that people need to speculate over.”
