RANDOM: Nightclub Turns Away Inked Ladies
Sep 01, 2009 - by Rebecca Alexander
A Swedish night club turned away two women because they sported visible tattoos.
The Swing Inn, a Malmo club with a policy of excluding women with tattoos, had permitted the women entrance on other occasions during the past few years."They told us that they don't let in women with visible tattoos. But if we put on a sweater it would be alright," Jessica Brotherton said, referring to herself and her friend. "We want to have a well-groomed clientele with neat clothing. We think that tattoos look distasteful," Holst said, adding the policy only applies to visible tattoos, as the management cannot ask patrons to remove their clothes.
First of all, this is kinda fucked up! I understand strict rules on clothing, but 90% of the world has some sort of ink, whether visable or not, this is sort of prejudice.
What do you guys think?
