Starbucks looks to lift worker tattoo ban
Starbucks might soon give baristas the right to bare ink.
The company currently has a no tattoo policy for the men and women whipping up our caramel macchiatos, but it’s reconsidering it.
Workers are required to cover up tattoos while they’re on the job – generally with long sleeves and long pants.
On Monday, Starbucks posted the question “How do you suggest we strike the right balance between self-expression and professionalism?”
The company says it’s in the process of evaluating a variety of workplace issues.
But an online petition asking Starbucks to change its tattoo policy has gathered 21,000 signatures since it was posted three weeks ago to Coworker.org.
