Potential rule: tattoo cover-up

The Board of Trustees will vote next week on a proposed rule requiring student athletes to cover all visible tattoos during competition.

President William M. Wilson and the ORU Athletics Department declined to comment until after the vote when asked about the proposed rule and the impact it could have on the athletics programs.

According to the university handbook ORU does not currently restrict tattoos or piercings.
