Darts Wizard books tattoo parlour return

Darts star Simon Whitlock was defeated in the Semi-Finals of the Ladbrokes World Darts Championships, but this was probably a good thing for his body after revealing the unique way of celebrating each win at the Championships.

The Aussie, who is nicknamed the ‘Wizard of Oz’, will get a tattoo for every win while participating in the championships at his favourite tattoo parlour in Portsmouth.

Whitlock, who was knocked out by eventually runner up Andy Hamilton, lives opposite the tattoo parlour and was hoping to add an image of the trophy to his body if we had won the biggest tournament in the darting calendar.

If he had won the tournament, Whitlock would have had more tattoos than David Beckham.

The Wizard was playing through the pain barrier with a screw holding his broken left ankle together and was so close to being in the biggest game of his career.
