In the past the word “corporate” and “tattoo” stood in stark contrast. There are still policies in place against visible tattoos in some office environments, but the prejudice isn’t what it once was. Heck, the world now has its first primetime national news anchor with a face tattoo. Body ink has even become a branding tool (so to speak) for many professionals and consultants. As a result, organizations are catching on and driving a fundamental shift in corporate culture. Start-ups are especially accommodating, if not downright encouraging. It’s the latter scenario that we want to touch on to today – tattoo ideas for your band of corporate misfits. Not only does a “corporate tattoo” promote cohesion it shows that the ownership team is fully committed to creating a sustainable success. Let’s review some ideas for making that happen.
Tattoo Concepts to Consider for Company Partners and Team Members to Promote Your Corporate Culture
The most logical choice for a corporate tattoo is your company logo. We’ll assume that you’ve put a lot of thought into the design and theme already, seeing as it’s what you are using to represent your company to the world. Imagine the team pitching its next great idea to consumers, clients, investors, and/or other stakeholders with visible corporate logo tattoos? What better way to convey confidence in the brand!
Motivational Words of Wisdom
Successful athletes have been tattooing motivational quotes for years. They look upon the inspiring words to rev their engines when preparing for an important moment on the court, track, field, or arena. In some cases an entire team (as applicable) will get an expression tattooed to prove solidarity to one goal – winning. Why should it be any different for entrepreneurs who have started an exciting new company and put together a management team to go to battle with?
How are you to choose a quote for a corporate tattoo? You can draw inspiration from successful people who have delivered some great one-liners through history, such as the following:
“There’s no shortage of remarkable ideas, what’s missing is the will to execute them.” (Seth Godin)
“I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite.” (G.K. Chesterton)
“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” (Albert Einstein)
“The first one gets the oyster, the second gets the shell.” (Andrew Carnegie)
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” (Walt Disney)
“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right!” (Henry Ford)
Of course, if your company has it’s own inspiring slogan or tagline, use it as your corporate team tattoo. For added insight, view this guide on where to get the words, quotes, and text tattooed.
