NEW YORK, New York -- If you can't beat 'em, then join 'em!  It looks like some corporations are relaxing their views on employees with tattoos and piercings.

From a clear-cut "no, no" to a more flexible "as long as it's not offensive", companies such as Starbucks, Wal-Mart and PetsMart are considering changing their dress codes to embrace the new era of body art and retain their employees.

Fashion is evolving and, hard to believe, Fortune magazine says companies are too.  But the question still remains: can you be a CEO when you look like you're on parole?  Traditional business executives are still at odds with the idea of hiring sales professionals with visible tattoos.  On the other hand, who wants a traditional corporate job, anyway?

Lucky for us  and for you, at Newsfix, we like it inked.  This is who we are, it's under our skin and that's irreversible.  And by the way, we're always hiring.
