I can name 2 players who have tattoos that throw me off when I see them in Madden without them: Kaepernick, and Tom Crabtree (currently a Free Agent).

I am perfectly fine with Kaepernick being the only guy with Tattoos this year, and I don't think it will take me out of the moment if I were to see his represented and then everyone else with bare arms (because again I couldn't tell you what any other players' tattoos look like, or which players on the 9ers that have tattoos). I couldn't tell you who on my favorite team (the Packers) has tattoos, I know plenty of players do, but I couldn't single them out, or tell you what they look like (we haven't had a guy with sleeves since we opted not to re-sign Crabtree), nor could I tell you who on the Falcons does(local team, which means its who I watch whenever the Packers aren't playing in the same time-slot).

I hope they have generic tattoos for other players until they can secure the actual tattoo rights, but even if they don't I could care less.

I don't get why people are getting mad at EA/Madden for including the only player they have rights to. I mean Kaepernick spent the money to secure the rights for this express purpose and now you are advocating that EA ignore that because you think it would look awkward if he was properly represented in the game?

Lighten up! EA has actually stepper their game up (at least in the graphics department, hopefully in the gameplay as well), and you are getting angry about it?! They just can't win with some people.
So one guy with full sleeves playing with and against 2,000 others who are completely blank won't throw off realism at all for you? to each his own I guess, but it will me. It's not about their specific tattoos either as I'm like you I don't know who has what exactly but I do know that several players have them scattered if I can't recreate that for every player in the game why would I want to for just one?

Like I said earlier think about dreadlocks or skin color even for that matter. Would it look right if one guy has dreads and the other 2,000 don't? or if one guy is blue and the other 2,000 purple? and in no way am I claiming this to be a game breaker on any level. it just doesn't look right to me and I question the decision unless we're able to edit in our own generics obviously.

I don't care to join the legal discussion. The bottom line is:

The screen shot got me hype. The facts killed my hype.

I never blamed ea on not having tattoos. But it is a little weird to have one play with tats unless the one saving grace is madden does what it did idk how many maddens ago and have their own artwork that you can clutter own biceps and forearms to give half sleeves and sleeves to those who need for those willing to take the time to do so. Screenshot looks great though hopefully it moves just as well

Many people figured it was a licensing agreement with EA and the NFL, but that is not the case. According to Seann, it comes down to copyright infringement. The player needs to secure permission from the artist first, which Kaepernick did, before EA can even begin to implement the tattoos into the game.






If another players wants his tattoos in the game, they need to go through the same process as Kaepernick. Since the game is almost complete, the odds of getting anyone else in the game with authentic tattoos is slim. We'll most likely see more players with tattoos in Madden NFL 16.


I call B.S. Once you buy your tattoo it's yours. E.A. Is too lazy to do tattoo's and they are not in the game..rather than take the backlash they feed the community more B.S. and you guys fall for it everytime. Smh

This thread could be the poster child of why so many of us stay away from the Madden forums.

I do put it on the NFL and NFLPA, but cmon, Tiburon doesn't want to do anymore work than it has too, lol. Let's be real here. We know Tiburon doesn't like doing anymore than it's required to do. Love em or hate em, this is the team we have for our NFL game at this time, but don't defend them like they go out for their way to be authentic and represent the NFL the best way. Dudes do what is required and THAT IS IT.

Re: Colin Kaepernick Will Be the Only Player in Madden NFL 15 with Tattoos

I noticed the guy from EA said CK would be the only one with "authentic" tattoos, but he didn't say he would be the only one with tattoos. I know in some games like WWE, they would put fake tats on some guys who had tats that were copyrighted. Is it possible they would put fake tattoos that look close to the real thing but is actually artwork they own instead?
