Derrick Mason tweeted a reaction to Carolina Panthers’ owner Jerry Richardson’s remarks that he didn’t want 1st Pick Cam Newton to wear any piercings or tattoos.  Derrick seems less than pleased with the news but won’t elaborate as he said he doesn’t want to open “Pandoras Box”.  Derrick Mason DOES have tattoos.

Cam Isn't Allowed to Get Piercings or Tatts

The Carolina Panthers want to keep Cam Newton, the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft, as wholesome as possible.

Owner Jerry Richardson told interviewer Charlie Rose of PBS the talented quarterback can’t get tattoos or piercings, even though such body decorations are increasingly commonplace in sports.

“I said, ‘Do you have any tattoos?’” Richardson recalled of his first meeting with the Auburn product. “He said, ‘No, sir. I don’t have any.’ I said, ‘Do you have any piercings?’ He said, ‘No, sir. I don’t have any.’ I said, ‘We want to keep it that way.’
