Diary: PR agency denies move into tattoos

PR agencies are, it seems, increasingly seeking to offer clients 'integrated marketing solutions', but PRWeek was astounded to hear this week that Marlow-based Six Degrees had set up a tattooing division.

Six Degrees, we learn, is listed in the latest Thomson Local Directory as among the 11 establishments in Buckinghamshire offering tattooing services.

Jan Stannard joint-MD calls, though, to reassure us that Thomson has erred and that PR remains the agency's bread and butter.

'We have no idea how this came about,' Stannard explains, adding that the offices have seen 'a flurry of internal jokes' since an account exec received a call from a bloke wanting 'henna body art.' 'We like to get under the skin of clients,' she can't resist adding, causing PRWeek's pun-detector to self-combust in spectacular fashion.
