Would You Show Your Loyalty to KPMG with a Tramp Stamp?

Or the new PwC logo on the back of your neck? How about Deloitte green dots incorporated into some barbed wire? Sure most people are looking for new jobs but for those of you looking to show some loyalty to your firm, you should know that some company ink may go a long way:

Employees of Anytime Fitness, a workout chain based in Hastings, Minn., can get the company’s purple running man logo permanently inked on their bodies by a tattoo artist who shows up at monthly training sessions. More than 350 employees have gotten permanent tattoos including CEO Chuck Runyon.

Runyon says the tattoo represents a significant commitment to the brand. Employees receive standard benefits like retirement plans and health insurance, but they also have flexible hours and an office culture that includes contests and giveaways among staff, a combination of perks that Runyon believes encourages employee loyalty.

“We spend a third of our lives at work,” he says. “If you don’t love what you do, that’s a miserable existence.”
