Obscene Tatoo

Texas. A department supervisor transferred from Scotland to our facility in North Carolina and is has now relocated to the new Houston factory. On his forearm is a tatoo of a woman's legs spread-eagle (sorry for this description, but I want it to be clear what he's displaying) with the verbiage "eat your heart out." I mentioned my concern to the General Manager, who told me to take it up with HR. At that time, the HR Manager walked into his office, so we had the discussion, I said I found it offensive and that I didn't want my customers coming in for tours and seeing this; it was a poor reflection on the company. I was not the only one who ended up making a complaint. They asked him about covering it up and he told them to "F" off, he'd go back to North Carolina, because no one there had an issue with it. They let him keep it exposed until a customer said something about it. Rather than cover it, he placed a band-aid covering only the center part. Was I being sensitive by being offended? I'm a pretty liberated person and am strongly opposed to the lengths people will go to for the sake of a lawsuit, but had a issue with this tatoo and the fact that it was placed where it was not covered by short sleeves. (p.s. I was fired.)



This is a good one! Never heard anything like it before. Why not call the EEOC and see what they say? Wonder if it would be considered the same as having sexually explicit pin-ups in the workplace. It could prove to be very interesting.
