Restaurant Refuses Service to Man Because of Facial Tattoos

Recommended Posts

In Qld, Australia now, it's common to be refused from venues for having hand, neck and face tattoos. Especially on the Gold Coast.

The way I see it is that these venues are mainstream. Fuck mainstream. Never wanted to mix with them fuckers anyway. Give me a dingy blues club any day of the week.

Facial tattoos are going to impact your life a lot more than just eating at a restaurant. I think the rule should be that you have to be covered from chest down and wear a fake tattoo on your face for a month before getting one.

They're not accepted by most sheeple, and that's kinda why they're cool.

Disclaimer: I work in restaurants in SF, a liberal community, and I have to say, most places that I can recognize right off the bat as being places that I wouldn't want to work for due to their prejudices are not places that I would want to work at, and much less so give my money to.

Since the thread is revived, I'll jump in.

I live about 6 miles South of the Fuqua (FuckWay is my nick for it) area, and yes, it has become a little rough there. One of my fire academy classmates is a Sr. Capt at the fire station there and has some pretty wild stories.

I wouldn't go to Bombshells or any similar Twin Peaks/Hooters restaurant in the first place. Their food sucks at best. While my personal beliefs about facial tattoos can be a little negative (depending on the content and intention), this guy certainly didn't deserve such disrespect.

Have you been to Nobi Public House, yet?

I had to look it up just now and saw the location. Now I know why that parking lot was so packed this weekend when we drove by. The ratings are really high so I'll have to see how the food is.

Thanks for the heads up!

That and Boondoggles are our 2 favorite places when we're south of the 610 and want decent food and a good beer selection. All the way down to GilHooley's if we want charbroiled oysters :)

That restaurant should be "boycotted" by anyone with a tattoo or sympathetic to the idea that no one should be discriminated against.  Then that restaurant would (ideally) suffer in sales and revenue and "realize" the stupidity (if not immorality) associated with discrimination.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
