Karolina Pliskova’s tattoos
Pliskova was fascinated with tattoos since a very young age. She first got inked when she was 15 years old. Her first tattoo was the one on the left arm. She then got a tattoo on her left thigh which was inspired by Maori tribe of New Zealand. Interestingly, her whole family shares a similar tattoo inspired from the Maori tribe. Her third and the last tattoo is a rather recent one. It is on her waist and is a ‘M’ sign, after her husband Michal Hrdlicka.
In an interview, Pliskova reveled that although her father was okay with her getting a tattoo at an early age, her mother was reluctant. “My father was fine, but my mom wasn’t really happy with that. But she got over it somehow.”
