Strangely enough more magazines than you think tend to airbrush their cover girls and guys as well as any one else that may appear in the magazine, if they have some noticeable ink on them. This didn’t seem to be such a huge concern until an incident happened eight years ago with Hoop Magazine. Hoop Magazine featured Allen Iverson’s on the cover of their magazine one month and had one of the basketball stars tattoos airbrushed off so it wouldn’t appeared on the cover. A huge controversy soon came about after this. Thus requiring magazine’s to get the person’s permission to make their ink disappear if they feel it harms the image of the magazine.
With that being said, don’t worry if you think you are losing your mind, if you have seen a small tattoo on Danica Patrick’s lower back before. The Indy car driver most certainly has a tramp stamp if you will on her lower back. Danica Patrick proudly displays a fairly small American flag tattoo on her lower back. Well if you caught the glimpse at the latest Sports Illustrated Swim Suit Edition you will notice that her tattoo is surprisingly missing. It seems that Sports Illustrated didn’t feel right about printing the photos of Danica in her swim suit with her tattoo showing. So the magazine got Danica’s permission to airbrush the tattoo into nonexistence. This act is fairly surprising since her tattoo is not offensive and shows American support. Either way for whatever reason SI felt it was necessary to remove Danica’s tattoo.
