Olympic Hopeful Selling Advertising Tattoo Space In Hopes Of Making It To London

Australian beach volleyballer Claire Kelly is so dedicated to getting to the London Olympics, she is offering tattoo space on her body to potential sponsors in anticipation of her time in the sports spotlight.

Options include an 0.8 x 0.8 inch part of her left limb for US$10,500, a 1.9 x 1.9 inch section on her right arm or shoulder for US$52,490, as well as other options up for auction on eBay. While it seems beyond crazy an idea to most, Kelly details her reasons for doing so in a blog post. Basically she is willing to do whatever it takes to reach a long-time goal of making it to the Olympics in hopes of winning a gold medal. Best of luck to Ms. Kelly!
