tattoo (and piercings!) watch: janko tipsarevic


(Editor Update: Our tattoo watch lives on as part of our duties at Tennis Now, which we took on in July 2012. Check us out there.)


The oft-spectacled Serbian Janko Tipsarevic has a bunch of tattoos. Most notable is a quote from Dostoevsky’s The Idiot — “Beauty will save the world.” — on his left arm, inked in Japanese. (He thought about getting it done in Russian, but it didn’t look as good.)

The other tattooed parts: his right arm, his back.

And let’s not forget his piercings: he has a labret and a barbell in the right brow.

FURTHER READING: The Guardian‘s Robert Kitson wrote this poetic article about Janko losing to Andy Roddick in the first round of last year’s Wimbledon.

    the last time i saw him play was at indian wells last february, i was thrilled that he defeated lleyton in the second round. the tattoos and piercings goes pretty well with his personality, i wish he would start playing well because he has a lot of potential.

    Couldn’t agree more1! Anyone who beats Lleyton is a champ in my book any day!

    I think Janko tipsarevic ..or as I like to call him..tippie! 🙂 is the coolest person alive and my hero. I hope he goes really far in his career so we get to see him more on the telly 🙂

    I saw him this year at the Aus open and he won! I cant remember who he played against, all my attentions was on him.

    He won and then was doing the walk around of victory and my friend and I were in amazing seats and he turned and was facing our way and I punched my arm in the air and in response he did the same!!!! 🙂

    I nearly died from happiness
