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 Coworker.org, 12,000 of which were Starbucks employees.
Let’s have a tatted up toast for change.
