Has anyone else read the story on Velonews, or anywhere else for that matter, on David Clinger's Maori warrior type of tattoo? Apparently his team, Webcor, has asked that he have the tattoo removed. I know the sponsor has a right to be concerned about image, but it sounds like they didn't really poll the sponsors or get some feedback from Clinger about what the tattoo is all about. I don't own a company and I certainly don't sponsor anything, so for me to comment from that aspect is difficult. But on one hand I have to say why all the fuss? And apparently all those involved in the decision have not even seen the tattoo. Must admit that this is an interesting story.
I certainly am curious now about the Webcor company. For me, I would lean more towards not doing business with this company or not buying their products because of their decision to want Clinger to remove the tattoo, or especially if they removed him from the team because of it.
