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.

    • Sure thing. The reason I joined this forum is actually because I wanna find something to cover both of these up completely, or at the very least make them look less like an ed Hardy shirt. Please let me know if you have any ideas.    I like anything with florals or Ancient Roman/Greek themed but I’m open to other styles too.
    • I have recently started seeing these in the black ink on some of my tattoos but only the ones I’ve had in the last 4-5 years. Any older than that have no issues. And an exception to one on my foot that I’ve had in the last few years that isn’t bothered. It’s mainly one big one I have on my arm that has lots of colors but they are only in the black ink. They don’t look like pimples, can’t be popped, and their size hasn’t changed since I’ve noticed them. Sometimes, they itch but not often. I’ve been thinking of seeing my dermatologist about it because I’m not done getting tattoos lol.
    • Don't get her wrong. Tattoo artists are welcome here and many have provided loads of insight in the past. However, the guidelines state: "Do not start threads asking about specific tattooing equipment or techniques, LST is not here to teach anyone how to tattoo. Ask your own tattooer, the next time you are getting tattooed. Maybe they'll answer you, maybe they won't." That said, if i saw that kind of practice, i'd never go back to that shop again and i'd advise everyone i know to do the same.
