Strictly Come Dancing’s Gorka Marquez shows off gigantic back tattoo as he gets acupuncture

Strictly Come Dancing's Gorka Marquez has shown off his enormous back tattoo.

Taking to his Instagram stories, the dancing pro, 31, gave his 697,000 followers a glimpse into his acupuncture session.

His caption read: "First thing on a day off."

In the snap, Gorka's entire back can be seen covered with a large tattoo of a Lion. The picture also showcased five acupuncture needles in his lower back.

Gorka recently finished the Strictly Come Dancing: The Professionals Tour.

Soon to be taking part in the Strictly Presents: Keep Dancing Tour, it's no surprise the 31 year old opted for an acupuncture session, which is said to stimulate the natural healing processes in the bodies and enhance one's well-being.

The father-of-one has been a professional dancer on the hit BBC show since 2016.


Gorka shares daughter Mia Louise Marquez, two, with his fiancée, actress Gemma Atkinson, 37.

Gemma is best known for starring in shows such as Hollyoaks, Casualty and Emmerdale.

Gorka and Gemma met on Strictly Come Dancing in 2017 and welcomed their first child together in 2019.

Announcing the news on Instagram in 2019, Gemma wrote: "And just like that, we’re a three! Our beautiful baby daughter arrived on Thursday 4th July and myself and Gorks couldn’t be happier.


"She's incredible and she certainly made an entrance, giving us all quite a fright at times! Little Miss independent already!

"Thank you SO much to the Midwives, nurses & doctors at The Royal Bolton Hospital who did the most incredible job taking care of myself and my baby."

She added: "You’re all so wonderful and I’m so grateful to have had you all with me and to have been under your care these past four days.

"Back home now for family time and to introduce little lady to her big brothers Norman & Ollie…. Let the next life chapter begin @gorka_marquez."

Although Gorka and Gemma got engaged in February 2021, neither of them know when they'll tie the knot.

Speaking to new magazine, Gemma said: "Gorka is literally on tour all of this year. We’ve only got four days off together.

“He’s got the two Strictly tours back to back, and then he’ll be going on Strictly in the autumn. We don’t even have a minute to sit down and begin making plans!”
