Mauricio Pinilla gets tattoo of missed shot against Brazil

Chile striker Mauricio Pinilla blew a perfect opportunity to send his team to the quarterfinals of the World Cup on Saturday when he missed a shot against Brazil. Pinilla’s shot, which came as the final seconds of extra time ticked away, deflected off the crossbar and out. Brazil went on to win in penalty kicks.

Now, Pinilla has taken extreme measures to make sure he never forgets that he came within inches of being a hero. The 30-year-old got a tattoo of his missed shot on his back.

As Metro pointed out, the words alongside the tattoo read “One centimeter from glory.”

It’s hard not to feel bad for Pinilla. His shot beat Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar and literally missed by inches. It was probably a good idea to get the ink on his back and not in his permanent line of sight.

    Agree or disagree with the choice of tattoo. the choice of artist is clearly a mistake! That looks like a drawing by a 5 yo.
