Staff offered pay rise to get company tattoo

A New York real estate agency is offering staff a pay rise - in return for them getting a tattoo of the company logo.

Rapid Realty employees are being offered a 15 per cent hike in their wages if they show their commitment to the firm in ink.

So far, 40 willing staff have taken up their manager Anthony Lolli's offer and been tattooed with the company's green and black logo.

"I think it's a good opportunity to show commitment to a company that makes going to work fun every day," Robert Trezza told CBS New York.

Colleague Joseph Tighe added: "My wife was a little concerned but I said, you know what, it was the best commitment I could think of."

Mr Lolli admitted he hadn't yet got the company tattoo himself - but said he planned to eventually.
