John Brooks is a German American born Center Back who plays for Hertha Berlin and the USMNT. Rog spent some time with him today and sent us this photo of Brooks’ tattoos. His left elbow has a map of Berlin marked with a star over Brook’s exact birthplace. The one on his left is Illinois, marked with a star over Chicago, the place of his father’s birth, where the American side of his family reside. No finer way to capture the nuance and texture of Jurgen Klinsmann’s United States National Team tapestry.
