Tennis Fans Take Home Lasting Memories with Wimbledon-themed Tattoos
While giant tennis balls, towels, and umbrellas are popular souvenirs at Wimbledon, some fans are opting for a more permanent reminder of their experience at the Championships this year. A local tattoo studio, strategically located near the All England Club, is offering walk-in appointments throughout the two-week tournament, attracting attention through extensive social media promotion.
Wimbledon Tattoo Studio has ensured that fans won’t miss any on-court action, as screens inside the studio broadcast live matches. The studio’s co-owner, Jack McGoldrick, expressed his excitement about the diverse requests they have received. From someone in China wanting a tennis racket tattoo to an American fan desiring a Wimbledon-themed design featuring the SW19 postal code, the studio has catered to various tennis-inspired ideas.
Since Wimbledon draws in spectators to watch top players like Novak Djokovic and Iga Swiatek, the tattoo studio has experienced a significant surge in bookings. McGoldrick revealed that their daily message inquiries have increased by 300 to 400 percent. Visitors from abroad are particularly interested in getting tattoos that symbolize Wimbledon or London, serving as a unique memento of their stay.
While no extravagant requests have been made so far, there is still time for someone to opt for a tattoo featuring the iconic eight-time men’s champion, Roger Federer. McGoldrick humorously mentioned his hope for a tattoo of former British player Tim Henman, while sitting on the famous “Henman Hill” at Wimbledon.
With this unique opportunity to capture the spirit of Wimbledon in permanent ink, fans are embracing the chance to carry a lasting memory of the prestigious tennis tournament wherever they go.
