Cash for Tats

[Naming Rights: Athletes’ Product Endorsements]

              A Croatian soccer player recently got paid to tattoo a product endorsement on his body. NASCAR driver outfits look like walking billboards, and other American sports have added uniform advertising.

Athletes who show skin while performing might want to cash in themselves. Product naming rights for an arm or a leg matched with a sports personage’s name or nickname should reap bigtime cash for tats. Imagine these athletic tats:
