NYC Realtor Offers Employees Pay Raise For Getting Tattoo Of Company Logo

So Far, 40 Employees Take The Plunge, Get Inked Up The Rapid Realty Way

The concept snowballed. Robert Trezza recently became the 40th employee to do so at Ink Stop Tattoo.

“I think it’s a good opportunity to show commitment to a company that makes going to work fun every day,” Trezza told Smith.

Joseph Tighe has been on the job only a month but has already taken the plunge.

“My wife was a little concerned but I said, you know what, it was the best commitment I could think of,” he told Smith.

Some people said they would not be lining up for a tattoo if they worked at Rapid Realty, regardless of the pay raise.

“Absolutely not,” David Frankel of the Lower East Side told Smith. “It would have to be extraordinary.”

“It’s a scar for life. I have enough of those,” another man told Smith.

Before you do something like this, Smith reported, make sure you know your company policy and have your boss’ stamp of approval.

The Rapid Realty tattoos, which can cost up to $300, are paid for by the company owner. Lolli said he hasn’t gotten inked yet, but plans to eventually.
