New York real estate firm offers employees pay increase if they company logo tattoo

A New York-based real estate firm Rapid Realty has offered its 800 employees a 15% pay raise if they tattoo the company’s logo onto their bodies, and the offer is snowballing, according to CBS New York. So far, nearly 40 employees accepted the challenge, AOL Jobs reported.

There are no size or location restrictions. Brooke Koropatnick got hers behind the ear.

“I had a paycheck coming in what was a substantial amount of money different, so it was nice,” she told CBS.

Stephanie Barry got tattooed two weeks ago and, along with it, a permanent pay raise for every real estate transaction.

“I was like, why am I throwing my money away when I could give myself from a $25,000 to $40,000 for the same amount of work?” Barry said.

Owner Anthony Lolli told CBS New York that he got the idea from an employee who had done it.

“He calls me up, he says ‘Hey Anthony, I’m getting the logo on me.’ I show up at the shop and I’m like ‘this is cool, how can I repay you?’ ” Lolli said.

Lolli said the employees who have gotten inked “get a lot of respect from the other agents with the amount of commitment that they have,” AOL Jobs reported.  The company owner pays for the tattoos, which can cost up to $300. Lolli told CBS New York that he hasn’t gotten inked yet, but plans to eventually.

Perhaps getting permanently branded with a company logo gives a whole new meaning to the term “walking billboard.”

    ARAB-,CAUCASIAN- AND, ESPECIALLY, ETHNIC-GREEK MALES CAN BE EXTREMELY HAIRY; INDEED, MANY OF THESE MALES HIDE HANDSOME HAIRY-BODIES UNDER THEIR BUSINESS SUITS – ATHOUGH, UNFORTUNATELY (BECAUSE OF THEIR BUSINESS PERSONA), THEIR FACES ARE USUALLY CLEAN-SHAVEN. [I always enjoyed watching C-SPAN Congressional hearings which featured testimony by Douglas Holtz-Eakin,PH.D (a handsomely-bearded male; professor/economist/Former Director of Congressional Budget Office. Tuffs of hair – oozing out-of Professor Holtz-Eakin’s shirt-cuffs – were on handsome display].

    TATTOOS ON THE BODY OF NATURALLY HAIRY MALES DESTROY THE HAIR-FOLLICLES OF THE IMPACTED AREA, WHICH GIVES THE APPEARANCE OF “BALD-SPOTS.” SINCE YOUNG MALES WHO ARE NATURALLY HAIRY HAVE AN INTEREST IN body-shaving [IN ORDER TO PLEASE, FEMALES], I HOPE – IF THIS HAS TO BE DONE FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY – THEY (AND, NATURALLY-SMOOTH-BODIED-MALES) ARE THE ONLY MALE EMPLOYEES TO ACCEPT Rapid Realty’s offer.
