A New York City realty company is offering a 15% raise for any employee that gets a tattoo of the company logo anywhere on their body. At the time of this article, 40 employees had gone under the needle.
There are no size or location restrictions. Places tattooed so far range from behind the ear, the upper arm, the ankle, and some shins.
The logic is simple, employees say. If you make a commission of $25,000 on a sale, why wouldn't you want to make $40,000 for the same amount of work?
While some employees have jumped on the idea, others said there will be no advertising on their bodies. One man said a tattoo is a "scar for life."
The tattoos can cost up to $300. but the owner is footing the bill.
