LIONEL Messi superfan and former Miss BumBum Suzy Cortez has revealed she has got another tattoo to showcase her love for the legendary footballer.
Suzy, 32, has long used her public profile to demonstrate her obsession with the diminutive Argentina and PSG forward.

The curvy Brazilian brunette with the world-famous rear already has several tattoos in tribute to Lionel Messi, including a very cheeky tat of his face just above her hips.
She also got Messi’s name tattooed on her bum in 2019 as a confident prediction that he would win his sixth Ballon d’Or the following year.
As it turned out, the 2020 contest didn’t go ahead due to the Covid-19 pandemic, although Messi went on to collect his sixth award when it resumed in 2021.
Now, Suzy has revealed not just one but a further three new tattoos on her bum celebrating the 35-year-old Messi.
She told The Sun that the fresh tats were in honour of Messi and Argentina’s stunning World Cup Final triumph over France in Qatar last December.
The three tattoos, which were pictured on her rear, include one of Messi’s autograph, three stars representing Argentina’s three World Cup Titles, and a number ten reflecting his shirt number.
Suzy said that the tattoos were fulfilling a promise she had made during the World Cup if Argentina triumphed.
As it turned out, the South American side successfully defeated the reigning champions France 4-2 in a penalty shootout, after a thrilling contest ended 3-3 following extra time.
It was Argentina’s first World Cup win since 1986 when they were captained by Diego Maradona.
Suzy said that her new tattoos mean she is entering the Guinness Book of Records for having the largest number of tattoos of Messi on various parts of her body.
She also shared two short clips of her having the tattoos applied at Xavier Piercing Tattoo.
Suzy was invited to watch the final in the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires – despite being from arch-rivals Brazil.
She announced her plans at the time for future tattoos if Argentina secured their third World Cup, and Messi’s first.
Suzy said: ‘I plan to get tattooed like Messi, with the ball and the number 10 on his leg.’
She celebrated Argentina reaching their sixth World Cup Final by delighting her fans with photos of her getting covered in body paint in the blue and white colours of the flag.
The latest inkings may not go down well with Messi’s wife Antonela Roccuzzo.
Messi previously blocked her on social media after being bombarded with saucy pictures.
Antonela – who has three children with Messi – also blocked Suzy after she tagged her husband in a series of provocative posts.
Suzy then launched an online campaign to encourage her fans to support her and convince Messi to unblock her.
Her famously eye-popping assets won her the coveted 2015 Miss BumBum and Miss Butt World titles, beating competition from beauties all over the world.
The winner of the title of Miss Bum Bum in both 2015 and 2019, she has declared herself the world’s number one Lionel Messi fan.
