Tattoos are indeed hideous (the big sleeve kind), but I am 90% sure I am moving to China in October for a fabulous job that will pay $30,000 more than I make here!

Each to their own but I gotta say...if I worked for a company that paid people to tattoo their brand on themselves, I'm pretty sure I'd quit. I won't even use the lunch bags and other company monogrammed crap they give us at work. I'm also one of those people who refuse to wear logos and never bought my children the clothes sold to advertise (think Gap sweatshirts or A&F logos)....pay for your own darn advertising, don't use me or my children as a billboard.

FWIW, I have several tattoos so I just want to make it clear this has nothing to do with being inked, rather being inked to advertise for someone else's financial benefit.
Last night my sister and I were sitting in the den and I said to her, "I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle to keep me alive. That would be no quality of life at all. If that ever happens, just pull the plug!" So she got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out my wine.

I agree....a little RR somewhere (hidden) for 15% extra money? No problem! And maybe it is a younger owner and a bit fun to work there.

I thought of that too. If you religion prevents you from this then you don;t qualify for a raise that others do? I'd be upset.

But if you were?

Also I totally despise tattoos.. If I were going to get one, it would be the names of my children, you know that people I have in my life forever, not some company I happened to work for, no way no how would that ever happen. I can't be bought by putting something permanent on my body and would question a company that asked me to do so. I also don't believe that is this story is legit, that they would allow you to be qualified for the raise if it wasn't somewhere that could easily be seen.

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

I've had enough needles to last a lifetime. I'm not getting any tattoos.

And as much as I love my job, I'm not getting its name tattooed anywhere. It's my job, not my life. My husband and kids, my parents and siblings-- they're my life.
