Nick Kyrgios, the 28-year-old tennis maverick, has always been vocal about his fondness for the Japanese anime, Pokémon.

Recently, he took his adoration to a whole new level by getting an enormous full-back tattoo of Pokémon characters, a testament to his unwavering love for the series.

Kyrgios shared the journey of his tattoo on Tuesday, initially posting a photo of his back adorned with the outlines of several Pokémon characters before the final design was completed with intricate shading. The Canberra native entrusted the skilled artists at the renowned Ganga Studio in Los Angeles to bring his vision to life, and four artists worked together diligently to craft the masterpiece.

In awe of the process, he captioned one of the photos with, 'Hard. Full lines at just one hour,' as he witnessed the dedication and artistry unfold before his eyes. Subsequently, he treated his fans to a couple more pictures showcasing the incredible shading that gave depth and life to his favourite characters.

Kyrgios' affinity for Pokémon goes way back, and in 2016, he admitted to indulging in the Pokémon Go mobile app during his downtime while competing in the Rogers Cup in Canada. This new tattoo stands as a permanent symbol of his passion for the beloved and long-running series, a unique expression of his personality both on and off the tennis court.
