Both born in the port town of Boston, Grant and I have created a vintage style brand by the name of Olive & Weston.
Having worked in the tattoo industry over the years it became clear to us that there is still a massive stigma towards tattoos.
We felt like it was up to us to try and make a change to this stigma!!
In March 2020, during the Coronavirus lockdown, we contacted our local MP Matt Warman who notified us that there is no law in place to stop businesses refusing to employ people because of their tattoos, this is where our journey started.
Our next step was to get into contact with the UK government to start a petition for this to be discussed in parliament and a new law made to make it illegal to not employ a person based on their inoffensive tattoos.
Following a discussion with the UK government the petition was agreed, we now need your signatures to help us remove this injustice. See below for more details.
