Brazil teammates Neymar and Gabriel Jesus reveal matching tattoos

A lot of people want to be like Neymar, but perhaps nobody is taking it quite as far as his Brazilian teammate, Gabriel Jesus. Neymar revealed that he and Jesus share an almost identical tattoo on Instagram this week.

Neymar’s tattoo, which he showed off in December, shows a boy with a ball looking at a favela and dreaming of the future. Jesus’ is nearly identical, albeit with different dream bubbles and other subtle differences. Also, Neymar’s ink is located on his calf, while Jesus’ is on his forearm. (If you’re really dedicated, you could probably search for all the differences, ala those Double Check games from "Highlights" magazine.)

The 24-year-old Neymar is among the age-exempt players competing for Brazil in the Olympics, while 19-year-old Jesus has been bandied about as "the next Neymar."  The Brazilian duo hope to bring home the gold medal for the hosts, after Brazil’s unceremonious exit from the 2014 World Cup.

Jesus might not have the technical ability of Neymar quite yet, but as least he has the look down.
