Werder Bremen believes that the discomfort following tattooing, combined with the risks of infection, could affect players' performances on the field, the Daily Mail reports.

Bremen's goalkeeper Tim Wiese, midfielder Marko Arnautovic and defender Naldo all have considerable numbers of 'tats.'ow, according to the new rules they won't be allowed to get any more tattoos.

Last season Hamburg, a rival of Werder Bremen, sidelined 24-year-old striker Eljero Elia after one of his tattoos went septic, the paper said.

At times, the pain was so bad he was even unable to wear his strip during training sessions, it added.
