Alliance CU Tattoos

A common topic of conversation in corporate America today is on the question, “Should tattoos be covered?” 

Tattoos have become more common over the past couple of decades. A Harris poll in 2014 found that one out of every five adults — 21 percent — has at least one tattoo. A Pew Research Center study found that the number was closer to 40 percent among those ages 18 to 29. (Feb 21, 2014)

Scott Rose, CEO of Alliance FCU in Lubbock, Texas, is allowing his staff to show their tattoos (if appropriate) on Tuesdays for a donation to the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation.  If they do not have a tattoo, they can wear an Alliance FCU tattoo, which is pictured below.

“Seems we live in a world of ‘tats’ and ‘hats.’ From this baby boomer, these two things had their place and it was not anywhere in “corporate America,” stated Rose. “Today most credit unions have policies against visible tattoos; and you see a lot of bandages and other creative ways to conceal ‘tats.’ Tattoo Tuesdays allow the credit union and staff to raise money for the Foundation while having a little fun. That is five Tuesdays for as little as $1 each Tuesday for an employee the privilege of displaying their tattoo.”

Don’t have a ‘tat’? No problem, the credit union will provide temporary ALLIANCE or Texas Tech Red Raider tattoos you can sport and raise money for the Foundation. Even members can get in on the fun. Rose continues, “They donate $5 and get a chance to win Texas Tech Red Raider football tickets. It’s all for the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation and the awesome work they do for credit union members, employees and other training initiatives.”
