Support Tattoos And Piercings At Work
Professionalism isn’t based on how you look, it’s based on how you interact and treat others.

You don’t need to have tattoos or piercings to support the cause of piercing and tattoo acceptance in the workplace. STAPAW encourages the non-tattooed and non-pierced community to base opinions of the individual on their merit, and not presuppositions. STAPAW is a movement of consumers who are stating we don’t mind purchasing products or services from businesses that hire tattooed or pierced employees...in fact we support it!

If that staff happens to have tattoos or piercings, it might be time to hire the “best thing” for your business.
