If your company offered you a pay raise to tattoo its logo on your body, would you do it?
A New York City real estate company made the offer and dozens of employees are getting inked.
As CBS 2′s Emily Smith reported Tuesday, a tattoo can be a way to show off your personality. For Rapid Realty employees, it is the fast track to a 15 percent pay raise if you get inked with the company logo.
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 Smith.
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 told Smith.
The credit doesnt go to Rapid Realty owner Anthony Lolli. He said he got the idea from a loyal employee who wasnt doing it for money.
He calls me up, he says Hey Anthony, Im getting the logo on me. I show up at the shop and Im like this is cool, how can I repay you? Lolli said.

A 15% raise is a powerful incentive.
Stupid people. I hope they go out of business. I’d be looking for a new job.
Is the company logo “666”?
No restriction on size or location??? How about the bottom of your foot to show what you think of the idea while collecting an extra 15%?
"Maybe I didn't think this through completely. I could always get a job in sports. Team manager, maybe."
a stupid company that deserves to fail miserably.
but I do not think it is any governments business to regulate it.
Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord.”
I’d do it. Even though I am a portly, middle-aged male, I’d get a tramp stamp. Whenever I have one of those plumbers’ butt moments, my company pride would be on full display.
and do you abide by ALL the old laws, or do you just pick and choose which laws are ok to break, and which you can condemn people for?
Look like he worked on the Pontiac assembly line.
I've always known that instinctively without being reminded by the Creator.
Isn’t that like saying, “We’re making so much money I can easily afford to give every single one of you a 15% pay raise right now. But first you’ll have to do something really stupid and degrading. Dance, maggots, dance for my amusement!”
Wonder what type of tattoo one would have to get if they worked for the AB Dick company?.
I worked on a construction site with them. Every summer they would have notices everywhere inviting people to the “Big Dick Picnic.”
A rainbow event?.
