We just wrote yesterday about how iffy sports tattoos can be. In addition to fans, athletes are now more tattooed than ever, filled out chest pieces and arm sleeves regularly. So when a new player or coach or trainer comes to the Philadelphia Union and needs some ink, what are they to do? That sounds like a job for the Union’s new Chief Tattoo Officer. Really.
To reflect this love of ink and club, the Philadelphia Union is searching for the first ever Chief Tattoo Officer. This is a one-of-a-kind, revolutionary position for an artist or shop to become the go-to place for the Union. Players, coaches, front office staff and even fans will come to you for their tattoos, Union related or not. Tattoos are for life, just like supporting a club, and we want you doing the work.
“This is an exciting initiative for all of us here at Philadelphia Union as we look to provide a revolutionary service for our players and front office, particularly those new to the area,” said Doug Vosik, Vice President of Marketing. “Our hiring process begins immediately; we are looking for a partner with a wide variety of talents and skills, and someone who can offer a broad range including American traditional, as well as Japanese, realism, new school and more.”
