Morris twins' next tattoos will be decided by fan voting

Kansas University's football team recently announced its fans will decide which of three uniforms the Jayhawks will wear for their season-opener on Sept. 6.

Fans can vote for which uniform they want Kansas University football to wear for its Sept. 6 home opener by texting their choice to 37664, with the keyword corresponding with a helmet: “KUWhite,” “KUBlue” or “KUCrimson.”

It's a good idea and promotes interaction between the fan base and the program. But the uniform promotion will only dictate the way KU looks for one Saturday in September.

Well, former KU basketball stars Marcus and Markieff Morris are about to allow fans to have their say on something far more permanent.

The Morris twins, ESPN The Magazine announced, will let the public pick their next tattoo.

None by ESPN The Magazine

The idea came about as a tie-in to the upcoming "fansourced" issue of ESPN The Magazine.

The Morrii, now teammates with the Phoenix Suns, have been adding ink to their frames for years.

Their next additions will either feature dogs, a tribute to their grandma or the acronym they popularized while playing at Kansas, F.O.E (family over everything).

Fans can cast their vote by tweeting to @ESPNMag with one of the following hashtags: #DOGS, #GMA or #FOE.

If KU fans get involved, here's guessing it will be FOEOE (FOE over everything).
