Krisnan Inu set for major new career twist once French move is over

Krisnan Inu has revealed what he would like to do as his future job – and it may come as a surprise.

Having joined French Elite One Championship side FC Lezignan from the Salford Red Devils, Inu is determined to make it in a completely different role once his career has ended.

That role is that of a tattoo artist.

When asked by FLHBNZ, the 34-year-old revealed: “I’ve started tattooing, and want to be better at that. Hopefully open up a shop at some point.

“I’m in that transition stage at the moment, going between starting my off field goals and learning to adjust to life without full time footy.”

Inu began his career in the NRL before switching codes in 2014.

A return to rugby league beckoned in June 2015 after being signed by Catalans Dragons in June 2015, before Inu signed a two year deal to join the Widnes Vikings in 2017.

A move to the Salford Red Devils came to fruition in 2019, where he played in the 2019 Super League Grand Final defeat by St Helens at Old Trafford as well as the 2020 Challenge Cup Final defeat against Leeds Rhinos.

Inu’s Salford career was seemingly in jeopardy in 2021 after he was fined four weeks salary and suspended from play for two months for social media activity.

And, now the 34-year-old has moved back to France where he enjoyed a stellar spell in his career.

Inu has over 1,100 points to his name in almost 250 career games and revealed his greatest piece of advice: “Enjoy the hard work that comes with chasing your goals.

“It’s never going to be easy, and not only talent will get you there. Hard work, dedication, and sacrifice. You might lose some friends on the way, but if they’re you’re friends, they’ll support you & understand.”
