Union announce search for Chief Tattoo Officer

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. 

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.”
