He also has a tattoo of a man in a flat cap, possibly resembling the BBC show Peaky Blinders.

The star, who got his first tattoo back in 2015, previously revealed his chest area took up to 150 hours to complete.

‘Todo sucede por una razón’

Meanwhile, the tattoo on his neck reads: “Todo sucede por una razón.”

The Spanish quote translates to ‘everything happens for a reason’.

On his back, Danny has chosen a detailed tattoo of Roman emperor, Titus.

Danny comes under fire

Sadly, Danny has already landed himself in hot water with Love Island viewers.

It comes after ITV2 fans spotted he had used the n-word on social media in 2019.

Danny’s dad has since responded to the backlash and insisted that his son doesn’t “have a racist bone in his body”.

He said in a statement: “Danny does not have a racist bone in his body and there were no racist intentions to this post. Although it was not done maliciously, it was a mistake.

“I absolutely apologise on his behalf for the offence this wording may have caused.”

Danny later followed up with his own apology.

He said, via ITV: “I’d like to take the time to apologise to anyone that may have taken offence to my inappropriate remark. I never meant anything malicious by this comment at all.

“I am not a racist person and it’s unacceptable language and ignorant.

Insisting he is “a kind, loving person”, Danny added: “Hopefully you get to see that in the show.”
