It's disapointing but I think it's cool when EA does things for individual players. RGIII's sleeve, Kaepernicks tattoos, Ray Lewis's pre-game dance, Individual celebrations.

Come on man. Permission for tattoos. I done heard it all. Typical EA. Always getting you excited about something and then they shoot you down. SMH.

3) What the hell does this have to do with created players not being able to have tatts for so many years and why were they gone from the game BEFORE the Ricky Williams case?
My theory is that EA just probably didn't care or weren't concerned about adding tattoos before because they knew they didn't have to. Fast forward to Next Gen & maybe EA realizes how far behind the are in a presentation/players model aspect. Games like NBA 2K14 set the bar high & EA has no choice but to step it up now or they will really get exposed this gen. If you combine this with recent declining sales, rumors of 2K getting back into football, etc...It's not a coincidence that EA is finally stepping it up. I'm still curious about what kind of licensing deal was negotiated between EA & the NFL. I have a feeling we'll find out more at E3.

That's not a good example to me because you can edit anyone in the game to play with one sleeve. If you can edit anyone to have tattoos in M15 then I'm fine with only CKs being authentic. I get it's a small thing to most people, but to me it's just going to throw the visual off. It's like when NCAA added dreadlocks, if they had only added them to one player it would have looked pretty strange IMO

They don't have to get tattoos for all the players in one year. Why not just start off with the star players one year, then the starters and others over the next few years. But only one player in the game with tatts is just stupid, now everybody is going to wonder where such and such tattoos are.

I'd prefer no tattoos and all the equipment that SHOULD be in the game! Nike and Under Armour are represented in the NFL from combine apparel to the apparel that's worn on the field and EA still has yet to represent the "NFL" in this manner. From gloves, cleats, half sleeves, and all they've fallen way short of my expectations and others. I truly hope they didn't spend this entire year of development working on one players tattoo! E3 will be a big proving ground for me to see exactly what these guys have been doing.... It's hard to be a football fan and watch EA muck it up every year!

Because, right now, it's on the players to get the permissions. And I'm sure there is a pretty good chunk of players that don't care whether their virtual likeness has tattoos enough to go through the process of securing permissions.
