The Swedish soccer star had the names of 50 people tattooed on his body before the French Ligue 1 game versus Caen. When he scored in the second minute Ibrahimović revealed his striking body art. The 50 names tattooed are of real people who are currently suffering from hunger.

Zlatan Ibrahimović, a Paris Saint-Germain star, captain of the Swedish national team, and the world football icon, is the new ambassador of the UN World Food Programme. In order to raise worldwide awareness, he decided to temporarily tattoo the names of 50 people suffering from hunger all around the world. 

“Wherever I go, people recognize me, call my name, cheer for me. But there are names no one cheers for; there are 805 million people who suffer from hunger in the world today. Too many of them are children.”


“Dream Bigger is our motto and we decided to give our support to Zlatan Ibrahimović and the World Food Programme in this innovative campaign to combat famine, “ said Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

The campaign consists of the movie you have seen above and a website: where you can learn more about the World Food Programme, and the names and stories of people tattooed on the body of Zlatan Ibrahimović.
