In a first, US soccer club looking for Chief Tattoo Officer


If there was one way for fans to make a mark in sport, this certainly is.

Major League Soccer (MLS) club Philadelphia Union is looking for their own dedicated tattoo artist who can connect with the fans. When the person is identified, he/she will be designated as the Chief Tattoo Officer.

The process of hiring has already begun after the advertisement looking for the right talent has been put out, according to a report in The Telegraph.

The advertisement reads: “Tattoos are a vital part of sport, fan and supporter culture. Just as tattoos are for life, fans choose a club to passionately support for life. As our club grows, players and staff are joining the Union from geographies outside of Philadelphia. Given their love for tattoos and unfamiliarity with their new city, they often look for guidance in seeking a new, local artist.”

The Chief Tattoo Officer will be responsible for providing services to the players and the front office staff. His job will also have to occasionally work for the most loyal fans who want their passion for their club to show with a tattoo.
