Can i get a NBL Team Tattoo?

so i was thinking about getting my favbourite NBL team's logo as a tattoo, in a year or two, if the nbl continued to grow a bit more ( i want to make sure the team wont fold soon after i get the tattoo)
am i allowed to do this? is there a copyright or something about the team logo's?
thanks

Just get a tattoo that says "moron" across your forehead.

If people are going to get sued for logos, Jordan would be 10 times richer than he already is

That's cruel, funny but cruel

If you do t want your team to fold don't get a tattoo and donate the money to them. I am sure someone from your club will write the team name on you in crayon for doing so.

NBL team logo's should be tattoo'd in texta because they'll both last about as long as each other.

My only advice is to make sure the tattoo artist can spell better than you

I recommend getting an Nbl tattoo on either your neck, forearm or upper arm. Not sure it's great in other spots. Lol would be funny if you get a team that folds,how would you explain the tat 40years from now!

@NBL Fan 2 This is one of those things that if you don't get it, no amount of explaining will make you understand.

You half answered your own question. Why not just get a 'Bankstown Bruins' tattoo now and be done with it? At least then you won't have the agonising wait at the end of each season to see if your tattoo has been made redundant.

p.s. anyone else noticed that it's really bad luck to have the word 'West' as part of your name if you're an NBL team?

West Adelaide Bearcats
West Sydney Westars (best nickname EVER)
West Sydney Razorbacks

p.p.s. @Uncle fester 'Censorship' best thread ever.

no i get why you think it's stupid, im not an idiot, but i honestly love the team i support and would love to get a tattoo of it

Most of my tattoos represent a time in life. If your a massive Seattle supersonics fan back in the day, there is nothing wrong if you still had the tattoo today. Just do it, its a tattoo its not really a big change in your life, you will forget about it a week later.
My next tattoo is going to be Pokemon wattup.

perhaps rethink your decision if its the 36ers..

a redundant tattoo within the first year could be embarrassing...

"Thanks, deffinittly thinking about getting it now"

@NBL Fan2 You just took advice from someone who's next tattoo is going to be a Pokemon?????

btw, you spelt "deffinittly" wrong. as well as there being two 'f's and two 't's there are also two 'n's.
For future reference: "deffinnittly"

@Uncle fester only recommendation is to be creative.

Like think to yourself, "What would Johnny Cash look like if he was half man, half crocodile?" and use that as the image for your tattoo.

re: Can i get a NBL Team Tattoo?

Thanks beekayz, ideally though I want the crocs logo so it is distinctly Nbl. If I get other it could mean any thing. I want the tattoo to ate up most of my upper arm area.

Also maybe get the names of some club mvps underneath.

I think all fans of bottom 6 teams should get a tear drop tattoo, cos thats all that seems to be happening lately.

what about a kings tattoo? I would like one.
And for advice on the crocs tattoo, maybe print the logo, and outline it, and get someone just to draw the outline on your arm with pen, keep it there for a while and see if you like the look, a outline tattoo could maybe look good too.

re: Can i get a NBL Team Tattoo?

@NBL Kings This is just a hypothetical, but just say for some reason the 36ers changed their name to the 'Adelaide Aardvarks' and Sydney became the 'Sydney Sloths' which do you think would make a better tattoo?

Both as a full tattoo, and just as an outline?
