Tats to tape

You could have an hour-long debate on favorite tattoos in the WNBA. Is it Detroit guard Deanna Nolan’s Chinese characters or Storm forward Wendy Palmer’s praying hands?
Well, Washington guard Alana Beard may have added a twist to body art. During Friday’s win, where Beard led with 24 points, she wore a wicked design of athletic tape. It was described as a Japanese technique by the game’s broadcasters that has also been used in the NBA, but I didn’t notice.
Beard used to wear a black compression sleeve over the injured left shoulder, but if this taping style works, maybe it’ll catch on across the league. And players will have another way to individualize themselves. Oh, I can hear the WNBA fashion police discussing a rule now.
