Do you want to be like Cristiano Ronaldo?
For those of who do not know him, he is a legendary footballer, arguably the finest of the present generation. He plays for his national team of Portugal and franchise team of Real Madrid. He is a natural athlete and is among the top goal scorers for their national sides.
But something else makes him great too, he does not sport a tattoo on his body. When most athletes of today, be it – Football, Cricket or Basketball, are in the habit of sporting tattoos to celebrate their wins, pay tribute to their family and closed ones or just as to express their personality. We have seen Virat, Beckham and many more sports tattoos on their bodies.
But Ronaldo refrains from this habit of getting inked by not having tattoos decorating his body. Ronaldo is a hero on the field as well as off it, he donates blood very often and inspires his fans to follow suit.
If you are wondering, what is the connection between blood donation and Ronaldo not getting inked?
Most blood banks do not accept the blood donation from people who have had a tattoo, solely because they could have been infected with either Hepatitis B or HIV with unscientifically handled needles.
If you do have a tattoo, does that bar anyone from blood donation?
In the broader sense, there is not a ban but blood banks prefer a passage of six months to one year to allow them to donate again.
