Southwest Airlines Workers Show Love For Their Jobs with Tattoos
A group of Southwest Airlines employees are so dedicated, and love working for the airline so much, they showed it by having Southwest tattoos.
Ashley Avanzino-Curran, Jeffrey Frazier and Calvin Lawrence all have South west tattoos, reported NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth, Thursday.
The workers met after the airline sent out an email for National Tattoo Day, asking about unique employee tattoos and posted a blog on the responses, reported NBCDFW.com.
Avanzino-Curran, a full-time employee said “It just represents my passion for flying, and a lot of people, they get tattoos of their family members, family members’ names or portraits, and Southwest is my family, so I got my family on my arm,” she said.
Jeffrey Frazier, an aircraft maintenance technician, made a decision on his tattoo during his first day on the job – 11 years ago.
“Since I thought that getting the job at Southwest was a very momentous occasion in my life, I noticed that logo and thought, ‘That’d make a great tattoo,’” he said.
Calvin Lawrence, a mechanic at the airline designed his tattoo himself after just one year at the airline, and kept it secret until just a few days ago.
“I’m very proud of being from Texas,” he said. “I’m very proud of working for Southwest Airlines.”
All three workers said they won’t have any regrets if their love for Dallas-based Southwest goes south reported NBCDFW.com.
“That’s a part of my history,” Lawrence said. “It’s a part of who I am and it’s part of what I did and I would carry it around with me wherever I went, proudly.”
