Former Karmine Corp bot laner Carl Martin Erik “Rekkles” Larsson has returned to the LEC for the 2023 season — with a whole new set of tattoos.

With Fnatic, the organization he made a name with at the start of his pro player career, he joins former G2 Esports top laner and teammate, Martin “Wunder” Hansen, support Rúben “Rhuckz” Barbosa, jungler Iván “Razork” Martín Díaz, and mid laner Marek “Humanoid” Brázda.

Rekkles had previously posted photos of his tattoos on social media. The first new design reveal was during a 2022 summer holiday in Croatia, where he showed off his new blacked out sleeves, chest, and back tattoos on Twitter, which covers up his previous tattoos, including the iconic “Rekkles” on his right arm.

In December 2022, he posted an update on his leg tattoos, giving us a view of both the front and back designs which connect as one art piece.

Posing in a nothing but a towel, sunglasses and a Kirby hat by the pool, Rekkles showed off his toned abs, arms and chest that sport new colors during the summer of 2022.

Both of his arms are fully colored in dark ink end to end, and lead into a chest piece depicting a hooded female face with closed eyes, reminiscent of Riot Games’ League of Legends Summoners who conjure champions on the Rift.

Connected by the arms, his back also showcases three genderless faces with glowing eyes in a triangular position, in various detailed tones of black ink.

In his December 2022 update, the outline of connected designs have been inked at the hip and back, but have yet to be colored in.

The same angular theme, likely by the same artist, extends down to his legs where another feminine face has been drawn on his right upper thigh.

Previously, the superstar bot laner was famous for showing off his trademark “Rekkles” tattoo on his right forearm in the LEC and at international events, such as this one at Worlds 2018.

By 2019, still competing with Fnatic, he had full sleeves done on both arms with intricate artwork that incorporated his original forearm designs.

He kept these sleeves throughout 2021 when he joined G2 Esports, but has since covered them up entirely with solid black ink.
