Lorenzo Insigne Tattoo’s
As with many modern-day footballers, tattoos have become very popular and regularly seen on today’s players. Furthermore, Insigne is famed for having ink over most of his body, including his arms, legs and torso.
The most noticeable tattoo is the full leg sleeve with a Maradona memorial design on his thigh, paying tribute to his childhood hero. This design is stunning, with his jersey number 24 tattooed on the back of his calf as the design blends into one big sleeve.
Another unique tattoo that has made headlines from Insigne is the stick family design on the back of his neck. It looks like what can only be described as a children’s drawing, something that would decorate a fridge. The story behind it is still unknown. However, we presume it has something to do with his children.
Lorenzo was born on 4th June 1991, in Frattamaggiore, Naples. He has three brothers, Roberto, Marko and Antonio, who are also footballers. His younger brother Roberto also plays for Napoli.
In 2012 on new years eve, Insigne married his long term girlfriend, Genoveffa ‘Jenny’ Darrone. They have two children together, sons Carmine and Christian that all live together in Naples.
Insigne was involved in an unfortunate incident a few years ago, where his wife and himself were robbed at gunpoint while driving in Naples.

Lorenzo Insigne Cars
Insigne spares no expense when it comes to his car collection. However, what turned heads was his all-black sleek Lamborghini Huracan Evo he received for his 29th birthday. With a price tag of around €200,000, this Italian supercar is every man’s dream gift.
Other luxury cars in Insigne’s collection are the Mercedes AMG GT63, along with a Ferrari 458. With cars that can go from 0 – 60mph in less than 4 seconds, there’s no surprise that he is a speed demon off the pitch, matching his style of play on the field. Its estimated his car collection is around €1 million alone.
From analysing Insigne’s sporting career, with his continuous growing earnings at S.S.C Napoli along with his Adidas endorsement deal, we believe Lorenzo Insigne’s net worth to be €35 million. However, 2022 may see a further increase for “Magnifico”, with other big clubs knocking on his door for his final peak years.
