You will be amused to know why MS Dhoni does not have any tattoo on his body

Former India captain MS Dhoni is one of the most followed cricketers across the world.

Right from the day when he made his International debut, he became a sensation for the cricket lovers. In those days, his hairstyle became equally famous as his aggressive batting.

Fans started copying the way the Ranchi born cricketer used to do his long hairs. Later, when he cut them short, people found him more handsome and copied that too. Whether be it playing on the field or his fashion style, Dhoni has been trying a lot of stuff. But there is one thing which he hasn’t tried ever. Have you ever seen a tattoo on MSD’s body?

Nowadays, there has been an upward trend of getting tattoos among the cricketers. Earlier, there were only footballers who used to have large tattoos on their bodies, but now with the course of time, numerous Indian cricketers have got inked.

We have Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Umesh Yadav, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja and others, who have tattoos on their body.
