Tattoos Sold to Brands for Olympic Gold

Top Australian beach volleyballer Claire Kelly is planning to get inked in order to get her and partner Carla Kleverlaan to the London Olympics in 2012. She is offering potential sponsors space on her body for an advertising tattoo or a brand tattoo.

This is a brave move by athlete Claire Kelly and highlights her ambition to get Olympic gold.

For $10,000 (US $10,500) sponsors can buy a 0.8 x 0.8 inch piece of Kelly's left arm while $50,000 (US $52,490) buys a 1.9 x 1.9 inch space on her right arm or shoulder. She has made up several similar packages which are on offer on eBay and brands are already looking into this possible advertising space.

The money raised by the sale will pay for the two athletes to join the world pro tour. The women have to play in at least 12 events on the tour to make it to the London 2012 Olympic stadium in Stratford, East London.

She is determined to make it and get a medal. Then I guess she can decide on her own tattoo designs.
