MARIO BALOTELLI revealed five new tattoos including the words 'Black Power' above his eye.

The Italian, 30, took to Instagram to show off his latest inkings across his face and neck for his 9million followers.

He got the 'Black Power' writing in a handwriting-style font over his right eye.

The phrase is often used by the ex-Manchester City man on social media as he continues the fight against racism.

Further down on his right temple, the striker has had a simple cross done.

Balotelli was born to Christian parents and so the symbol is likely to be in recognition of his faith in Jesus.

He has also opted for a gorilla's face on his neck behind his right ear.

On the other side, he chose an eagle's feather in front of his ear and a letter 'M' behind it on his neck.

His new additions join the various tatts he already had across his arms, shoulders and chest including a quote from Mongol warlord Genghis Khan.

The 36-cap Italy international used a series of emojis to help explain the tattoos, which look as though they were done by Eros Saviano in Brescia.

The forward returned to his hometown club to join Brescia last year.

But with two years still to run on his deal, he has been frozen out and effectively "sacked" by the Italian outfit after a monster bust-up with the club's chief and former Leeds supremo Massimo Cellino.

The 2011/12 Premier League winner racked up five goals in 19 Serie A appearances for Diego Lopez's side last season.

But he caused a stir when he started missing training sessions when lockdown restrictions eased.

However, Balotelli has been handed a football lifeline by SuperLig side Besiktas, who are in talks with his agent Mino Raiola over a £43,000-a-week contract.

He fuelled the fire when he posted heart emojis in response to a Besiktas fan page that tagged him in a message imploring him to join the Turkish side.

The former AC Milan and Inter star was also linked with Galatasaray, Romanian side Cluj and Serie C outfit Como.
