Adepanews.com came over tweets from the Uruguayan goalkeeper, Sebastian Sosa, who plays for Argentine club Independiente, and realised he had gotten a lion tattoo on his head after his hair fell out following a battle with coronavirus.
The 34-year-old, who has played for a number of clubs across Argentina, including Boca Juniors and Vélez Sarsfield, says his hair started to fall out “abruptly” in the weeks after picking up COVID-19 in July.
In an interview with TyC Sports disclosed that
“I had coronavirus in July and at the end of August my hair started to fall out abruptly.” he said.
“It fell from all parts of my body. I knew it was a sequel to Covid.
“I’ve always liked lions, that’s why I wanted to tattoo one on the back of my head. They tell me I look like Hitman, and I like him.
“I only had a few left, so I decided to shave. I’ve always liked lions, that’s why I wanted to tattoo one on the back of my head.”
“My tattoo didn’t hurt. When the tattoo artist started I said ‘have you started? Is that all the pain?’ The truth was I got along pretty well, it was six or seven hours. I have the lion back there.
