And the way he chose to express his deep attachment to his religion is through ink.
Although not pictured, there is a pair of tattoos in Italian, "vita dolce," which means beautiful and sweet life, and "moderato", which means moderate tempo.
On his right arm, there is a tattoo of a cartoon heart with arms and legs, which was inspired by Keith Haring.
Yesterday James, who is studying engineering at Sheffield Hallam University, told how he got the tattoo done for a BET."I had been drinking with friends in Sheffield and said I would have the tattoo done if Jamie broke the Premier League record by scoring in 11 consecutive matches."He did it and I had to go through with it.'It was sore," James, who is originally from Leicester, added.
And James says he will get ANOTHER Vardy tatt at the end of the season if the striker becomes the highest scorer in the Premier League."I have been a City fan all my life and I remember watching them at Filbert Street."Jamie is great."I believe Jamie will be a hit with England if he is played up front in his proper position and not out on the left."Let's hope you don't live to regret it James.
The student tweeted: "If Vardy breaks Van Nistelrooy's record I will get 'chat s**t get banged tattooed on me".
And he was true to his word when Jamie hit his target during a game against Manchester United on November 28.
Then he has "Forever Young" tattooed on the right side of his torso and "Mind Control" on his left flank. He has his baptized name tattooed across his chest and a portrait of his mother when she was younger on the left side of his chest.
In addition to the pair of skeletons tattooed on his arms, he has "Freedom" tattooed on the backs of both his arms.
Of these, the most well-known is the "too fast to live too young to die" tattoo inked across the right half of his back.
The words are also included in one of G-Dragon's song, "The Leaders".
But nowadays, idols' acceptance of tattoos reflects a liberalization of Korea's mainstream culture.
