    With hugely increasing players with tattoos, soon it will be another thread of players WITHOUT tattoos.

    Does anyone know why Lin Dan's tattoo misses THE in the title "Until the end of world"? The origins of his tattoos are explained here, and the famous line is a reference to the ending theme of a japanese anime series "Slam Dunk", recorded as "Sekai ga owaru made wa" by WANDS in 1994. The correct English translation would include THE, as featured in his own book's title and also in the commercial Intel Tattoo at 1:45. Yet his arm displays "Until the end of world" without THE. Any ideas why it happened?

    I have a thought...just how intimidating it is to play with opponents who r heavily tattooed on visible parts of their body...?

    Seems to me that tattoos no longer tie to gangsters.
