Tattoos in the workplace

Should employees get corporate tattoos?  Should they be expected to?  Allowed to?
A story in the Wall Street Journal by Rachel Feintzel and Kelsey Gee examines the issue at places like WalMart, Anytime Fitness, US Forest Service, and more. Sailors have long used tattoos to mark places they have been (like crossing the Equator).
Workplace tattoos seem like a way to “join the tribe”.  That would fit into the ideas o Amy Chua’s book.
But body art might violate the idea of body sanctity in my style of thinking.

Picture: A DC restaurant appears to refer to the transgender character "Pie O Pah" in Clive Barker's Imajica ("Pie Oh My").
