Cristiano Ronaldo rejects getting `inked` to donate blood

Melbourne: Cristiano Ronaldo confessed that he would never get his skin inked as he wanted to continue donating blood.

The 29-year-old Portugal footie ace, who reportedly gives blood twice a year, doesn`t feel the need to get a tattoo, as in many countries, people with new tattoos can cause risks of cross-contamination and hepatitis while donating blood.

The Real Madrid star, who had also started donating bone marrow, said that he started the noble act when he learned about his teammate Carlos Martins`s son`s suffering, News.com.au reported.

Ronaldo added that donating bone marrow was almost like drawing blood, and he would gladly do it again as he understands the seriousness of the disease.
