CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Rapid Realty, a real estate brokerage in New York made its agents an interesting offer. It will permanently raise the commission rate from 25% to 40% for any agent who gets a tattoo of the company logo.

Company owner Anthony Lolli says he got the idea from an employee who went all on his own and got the company tattoo. Lolli loved it so much, he said to the man, "How can I repay you?" The rest is history.

Agents who've gotten the tattoo spoke with a local TV station. They say the cash-for-tattoo was an easy decision. Well, most of them.

"My wife was a little concerned but I said you know what it was the best commitment that I could think of," one man said.

"I think it's a good opportunity to make a commitment to a company that makes going to work fun every day," another employee said.

The company also pays for the cost of getting the tattoo.

25 percent is the normal starting commission rate, but some of the company's more experienced agents were already getting the 40 percent rate, so the tattoo lets everyone get on that track instantly.

There are other ways to get the higher commission too, like doing charity work and mentoring a new employee.
