Tennis star in Playboy reveals Jesus fish tattoo

A cropped version of Harkleroad's Playboy pose

Daniel Radosh, author of “Rapture Ready!”, has the skinny on tennis player Ashley Harkleroad, who made headlines recently, not for her play on the court but her agreement to pose for Playboy. She has, and Radosh spotted an odd inking in one of the photos.

It’s a tattoo of the Jesus fish, just above her waistline, and I sure hope this is a first for the magazine.

“In the word-things that accompany the pictures,” Radosh writes on his blog. “Ashley says she got the tat when she was younger, but stands by it. ‘I still believe in God, but God made female athletes beautiful and sexy, and I want to represent that.’”

Oh brother. And I thought putting the Ichthys on your bumper was bad because, as Ben Folds sharply sang, “See that a—hole with the peace sign on his license plate/ Giving me the finger and running me out of his lane.” God is definitely not happy.
