The Philadelphia Union Soccer Team has just inked a deal with Jay Cunliffe, making him the team's brand new CTO - Chief Tattoo Officer! Now there's a title to make CEO’s & CFO’s soooooo yesterday...

The Union began their search on Facebook and generated 150 applicants, some from as far away as Japan, Russia and England. The list was narrowed down over four rounds, until Jay and his art team at Bonedaddys Tattoo Studio in Aston, was the last 'tat' standing! 

The partnership kicked off August 21st with Union team members getting gorgeous tattoos while Comcast Sports TV and other media types watched and marveled at the talent and skill of the artists - as well as the fearlessness of the tattoo recipients... ;)

Gotta love a Delco boy...
Justin Coyne, longtime client of Jay's
has permanently inked his Delco roots for all to see!
Jay, owner/founder/artist extraordinaire has been honing his skills for 14 years, and said he was “overjoyed and extremely excited to team up with the union.”

A Graphic Design graduate of the Hussian School of Art, he opened Bonedaddys in 2005.

“I seemed to always know that I wanted something different, and I really gravitated to tattoo art,” explains Cunliffe. “All the guys here were art students, and like me they wanted to apply their training to something imaginative and personal. What could be more personal than placing your art on a person for a lifetime.”

"Since opening we have been putting out the highest quality artwork possible," he explains, crediting much of the shop's success to fellow artists Nate Cook, John Pohl, and Craig Blankley.
