A 23-year-old woman who works as a school clerk in Osaka has been disciplined for having tattoos.
The woman had her salary cut for one month for violating ethical rules, the Osaka board of education said, NTV reported Friday.
According to the board, the woman got three tattoos from 2012 to 2013: one on her left arm and two on her left ankle. There was an anonymous call to the school complaining about the tattoos, which prompted the board to investigate the case. NTV reported that the woman has agreed to have her tattoos removed.
This is the first time an Osaka government employee has been punished for having tattoos since Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto announced an anti-tattoo policy in June, 2012.
The local government in Zushi, Kanagawa Prefecture, plans to submit a resolution to the municipal assembly calling for a ban on playing loud music and drinking alcohol at the city’s beach. Anyone with visible tattoos will also be barred.
