Cape Town - The world's two most aggressive and intimidating pacemen will be going head-to-head on Australia's tour of South Africa, with most expecting Dale Steyn and Mitchell Johnson to take centre stage in the battle to determine the world's No 1 bowling attack.

But the fast bowlers have more in common than just pace and giving batsmen worldwide nightmares: they also possess prominent body tattoos.

Moustashioed leftie Johnson rocks a dragon on his right non-bowling arm and a wild-cat on his torso, while the "Steyn Remover's" tattoos include pictures of proteas and koi fish.
