These People Loved Starbucks So Much They Got It Tattooed Onto Their Bodies

Go Venti or go home.

There's an old maxim that says if you enjoy what you do for a living, then it's not really work at all. It's a nice thought, until you realize that the most die-hard Starbucks fans -- those who have emblazoned their loyalty into their skin in permanent ink -- are excluded from getting a job at their mecca.

That is, until now.

Starbucks' recently updated dress code for employees, called "partners" in 'Bucks-speak, now allows for workers to display their polite non-facial tattoos. (They can also wear skirts and untuck their shirts and wear black jeans and rock tiny nose studs now.) Huge news for these TK caffeine devotees!

Here are several things that could happen in this brave new tattoo-showing world:

1. This guy can make your no-water soy chai now.

[...]

2. You might catch someone wearing this art all like, "did you want that hot or cold?"

[...]

3. This lady can intentionally spell your name wrong!

[...]

4. This person can give you side-eye for silently accepting Pike Place.

[...]

5. You can ask the human sporting this ink whether they're sure they used non-dairy milk in your latte.

[...]

6. This arm may soon be the one handing you your cookies and cream frappuccimocha delight.

[...]

7. This is like, hey, do you want whipped cream even though you asked for it skinny?

[...]

8. This may be asking you if you'd like to refill your Starbucks card. Soon. Soon.

[...]

9. This person won't get mad at you for asking for a "medium."
