Company ink: agents get 15% raise for corporate tattoos

"We call it brand ambassadorship," said Anthony Lolli, owner and CEO of Rapid Realty, a New York based real estate firm that encourages employees to get a tattoo of the company's logo. In exchange for the tattoo, employees receive a 15 percent commission increase for life. NBC's Joelle Garguilo reports.

How far would you go for a raise?

Inking a deal with Rapid Realty has a more permanent feel now that the New York City-based brokerage is giving a 15 percent raise to its workers who get a tattoo of the company’s logo.

So far, 40 agents are inked and more are lining up, Anthony Lolli, the CEO of Rapid Realty told NBC News.

One new agent got the tattoo after only a week working for Rapid Realty.

But isn’t that crazy?

“I don’t think so,” Lolli said. “Some people fall in love with the opportunity. They fall in love with the brand.”

It’s actually pretty conservative compared to other people who have tattooed company logos on their person, such as the man who tattooed the web address of a porn site on his face or the woman who auctioned the space on her forehead for $10,000.

 I like my tattoos, but I sure as hell am not going to bend over and let my boss shove one up my bum...haha...

I am not sure I could be a permanent billboard for anyone. It just brings to mind things like Enron and the BP spill and the reaction of others after those events.

I cringe inwardly when I see permanent make up tattoos, especially when the woman has obviously shaved off her eyebrows and had crazy thin and super high ones tattooed on. YIKES

I don't work anymore. I have 3 tats, that are just something about me. Looking back, I'm glad I was never in a position to tat a company logo. haha. With the way jobs are these days...it's kind of crazy that people believe they will be in that company forever. I look at my daughter and realize tattoos don't exclude you from excellent jobs, but I also know she'd never tattoo her company's logo on.

I cringe at the idea of permanent eyeliner.

Getting something similar to this, except with  M4 and M16 rifles crossing in the backround. No blood dripping, either.

Nice

Is there a meaning behind getting it?

I'd never do a company logo tattoo. That's just insane.
