The meaning of Daniel Agger Tattoos

Updated on March 15, 2013

There have been a lot of talks about Daniel Agger tattoos. Our website is full of different questions about their meaning, especially after he has shown the new one after scoring a goal in a friendly match against England. However, very few people know that Daniel is always ready to make tattoos himself. Some of his teammates are his permanent clients. Let's find out the meaning of all those tattoos that cover the major part of Liverpool defender's body.


Daniel Agger was born on the 12th of December 1984. He has already become the captain of the Denmark national team and one of the main players in the defense line of Liverpool. He has proved to be very talented and ambitious from the very beginning of his career. One of his main advantages is the fact that Daniel can read the game and has a very strong and accurate shot. These abilities made him one of the leading players in his first club Brøndby IF where he had his first appearance in 2004. Agger managed to win Danish Superliga trophy and has become the main target for the majority of top European clubs. After 2004/2005 season Agger was awarded to be a talent of the year. In 2005 Daniel took part in his first play for the national team where he was the main cause of problems for English forwards. We should take into consideration the fact that he was only 20 years old during that period of time.

This turned out to be the starting point of his career in Europe. He joined Liverpool in 2006 during winter transfer window and turned out to be the most expensive transfer in the history of Danish football. It was a £6,000,000 deal for Brøndby. As soon as he moved to Liverpool Agger started to show a very good play. In addition he managed to score 3 goals in 10 matches during his first season in Premier League. As the result he was lucky to win Champions League trophy, FA Community Shield and the FA Cup with his team. However he is famous with football fans not only for his talents.

Tattoos: Places and Meanings

Here is the list of Danny Agger's tattoos.

Middle back 'Viking Graveyard'

Everyone could see a Viking graveyard right in the middle of his back. It seems like Agger paid a lot of attention to the history of his native country while choosing a scenario for his tattoos. For example, his back amid contains the image of the first King of Denmark who belonged to the oldest nation's monarchy in the world. Moreover there is an image of Harold Bluetooth on the right part of his back. He was the one who finally managed to unite three Scandinavian regions. Picture of the King Canute will not be a surprise as he controlled England during the period between 1016 and 1036. Agger also used those parts of his body where it was impossible to make images.

Upper back 'Viking Kings'

The image of Sven Forkbeard who was the King of Vikings in 1013 can be explained as the fact that he never managed to master England in a brutal way. This tattoo is placed on the upper back while on the middle back we can witness a picture of one of the Denmark symbols. It is the bone Holger. This symbol has a very special meaning. It says that the country is always ready for a fight in case there is a threat for the people of Denmark.

Top of the back 'Mors Certa, Hora Incerta'

In addition we should mention about a Latin proverb 'Mors Certa, Hora Incerta' which can be found on the top of his back. This proverb can be translated as 'Death is certain, its hour is not'.

Ankles 'Pain is temporary, victory is forever'

As the continuation to this topic Daniel has inscriptions on both of his ankles which mean 'Pain is temporary, victory is forever'. It really seems like Agger will never walk alone with all those tattoos after all.

Knuckles 'YNWA'

YNWA means "You'll Never Walk Alone". It is used by Liverpool fans as the club anthem.

Chest 'Inscription of the names of his brother and sister'

Agger also used those parts of his body where it was impossible to make images. For example, there is an inscription of his brother's and sister's names on his chest.
