Simon Kjær has four stars tattooed on his left arm, which stand for his parents, his sister and himself. His sister has the same tattoo.

The tattoo near Kjær's left shoulder really needs special attention, since it took such a long time to find out what it is. When comparing two pictures it becomes obvious though: mountains.

Danish crown
