Starbucks Contemplating Lifting Employee Tattoo Ban


Most know that Starbucks isn’t ’bout that tattoo life, but they just might have a change of heart soon.

USA Today reported that as Starbucks has been reviewing its dress code, it has considered allowing its employees to wear visible tattoos. A definitive decision is expected to be announced within the coming weeks and the new dress code would take effect in the US before going global.

Currently if Starbucks workers have tattoos, they usually must have them covered, leading to lots of long sleeve shirts on inked up employees.

There was an attempt at trying to get the tattoo ban lifted in August by employees and customers alike, as 21,000 people signed a petition on, 12,000 of which were Starbucks employees.

Starbucks has been open to new things lately as they’ve tested out coconut milk for a non-dairy alternative, and tested cold brew coffee in certain stores.

Let’s have a tatted up toast for change.
