Tattoos have become increasingly popular among modern-day celebrities, including Hardik Pandya. Hardik Pandya has established himself as one of the most electrifying young talents in Indian cricket. As he continues to prove himself in the cricket game, it’s only natural that more and more fans take an interest in his off-field persona, and Hardik Pandya’s tattoos are an undeniable part of his persona, very special to him, and have their own meanings. However, with over 10 tattoos adorning his body (and more on the way!), it can be hard to keep track of which ones mean what, and what those meanings represent to Hardik Pandya himself.
Like many modern-day cricketers, Hardik is also really fond of tattoos and has a lot of stuff inked on his body. He has the phrase ‘live to succeed or die trying’ on his left arm biceps while ‘never give up’ is written on his right arm biceps. He has also inked the word ‘Believe’ on his left arm and also has a tiger tattoo on his left upper arm representing strength and courage.
He also has a paw tattoo for his dogs Aston Pandya and Bentley Pandya and finally, he also has a peace symbol on his neck.
In fact, he has a huge collection of tattoos—each one meaning something different. Here’s a look at his top ten tattoos:
This Hardik Pandya tattoo on his neck is a representation of his pet dog. It’s also said to be a dedication to his loving mother, who was killed in an accident.

A tiger is a strong symbol of power. It’s also one of Hardik’s favorite animals. So it stands to reason that he chose one as his first tattoo. Also, his number on India’s cricket team is 23—the same number as Munaf Patel, whose playing style Hardik tried to emulate growing up. This is an expression of his love for cricket, and his goal to live up to Patel’s legacy.
Hardik’s first tattoo says “Live to succeed or Die Trying,” which is quite an inspiring phrase. A lot of people in our lives tell us to take it easy, but sometimes we have to do our own thing; even if it might not be exactly what they had in mind for us.
This tattoo was inspired by Hardik’s father. Through thick and thin, he has always stood with him. When Hardik suffered a groin injury, his father supported him, giving him the confidence to overcome it. The never Give Up tattoo on his arm is symbolic of his dad’s never-give-up attitude that he wants to pass on to others as well.

In honor of his son, the cricketer has inked a new tattoo. Hardik posted a photo of his tattoo which shows a picture of his father’s hand to the son and a tattoo of him holding it, which embodies the father-son relationship between them.
Natasha Pandya reacts to Hardik Pandya’s tattoo about a special date. Tattoo also contained the birth date of his son, Agastya Pandya.
