Arsenal’s Theo Walcott’s New Sanskrit Tattoo is Jacked Up

Something Is Not Right Here

Arsenal star Theo Walcott got a new tattoo of an inspirational Sanskrit chant on his back, and while some of his followers on Twitter are praising the professional athlete for his meaningful new ink, those with first-hand knowledge of the Sanskrit language are ridiculing him for getting a tattoo that is grammatically incorrect. Walcott’s new tattoo is inked vertically down his spine and features a series of seven characters, which to him means “Open your heart, shed fear, hate or envy, to experience everlasting joy & happiness,” which is what he captioned a Twitter pic of his tattoo on Wednesday.
