Now Harrington has admitted his team have made a similar request and that it now an “unwritten rule” for future Captains.
“I am delighted that that’s all they asked for, but I’d have given up a lot more. So yes, I will be getting a tattoo. If my team produce a winning week, I will be getting a tattoo to mark the occasion,” Harrington said.
“I don’t have any other tattoos at this stage, so it would be a new experience for me. Where on the body? I don’t know. It depends… no, I can’t go that route. Depends how long it is.”
