Lionel Messi's left foot might be considered the the most expensive body part in the world of soccer. He  already has a $5.25 million solid gold replica of his foot for sale in Japan, but that's only a fraction of the worth to him of the two little hands the soccer star just had tattooed on his slightly less valuable left calf. Messi — arguably the best soccer player in the world — showed off his new tattoo of what is assumed are the hands of his first-born child along with the four-month-old boy's name —Thiago Yesterday, the Barcelona star tweeted photos of himself getting the ink job done in what looks like make-shift tattoo parlor in a high-rise building. Maradona's infamous handled goal at the 1986 World Cup made the "Hand of God" famous but Messi, who has four Ballon d'Or titles, five La Liga titles and three Champions League winners' medals on his resume and is considered the greatest soccer player ever to play by many — now has his own Hands of God. It might not have the drama or be as catchy as Maradona's phrase, but it probably wouldn't bother Messi.
