Las Vegas, NV, United States (AHN) – A Las Vegas tattoo company’s racy slogan is causing a buzz while doing what it was designed to do – drum up business. The slogan, advertised on the back of taxi cabs, reads “Sluts R People Too.” The “R” is written backwards.
Phillip Limon, manager of Precious Sluts Tattoo Parlor, said the ad was meant to be funny and attract a certain clientele. It is not meant to offend parents or family-oriented groups.
One cab driver reportedly said no one has complained about his cab carrying the ad, but said many customers think it is clever.
However, some potential passengers refuse to enter a taxi cab carrying the sign, saying it is degrading to women.
Limon said no matter the stance, the ad is working and is attracting customers to the parlor.
Las Vegas is known for its risqué advertisements for gentlemen’s clubs, shows and erotic stores. Taxi cab drivers in the city are no strangers to the controversy.
