Weird: Starbucks allows Tattoos and Bans Engagement Rings
A very pro hipster move indeed. In weird news, a new Starbucks dress code created for baristas and Starbucks retail employees will allow employees to show visible tattoos and nose studs, but prohibits the wearing of watches, bracelets, and engagements rings with stones.
Although a simple wedding band\ is permitted, employees of Starbucks aren’t taking the news so well. A few employees are quoted in an article about the new dress code on Eater.
“It’s awesome they now allow you to wear tattoos, but it seems weird to not allow anyone to wear a wedding ring. A lot of people are upset.”
“Visible tattoos are ok but a symbol of commitment to my husband isn’t?”
