Tattoo taboo in good jobs ....not so much anymore
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.
