Seattle Fire Department investigates so-called ’embarrassing’ Facebook photo

A photo that appeared on Facebook of a lieutenant’s tattooed back and buttocks is being investigated by the Seattle Fire Department, according to KING-TV.

The picture was apparently posted to honor the tattooed man’s retirement from the department and reportedly was “liked” by many colleagues.

The tattoos — “Ladder 10,” “E  25” and “B 2” — pay homage to the group the lieutenant worked with in Ladder 10, Engine 25 and Battalion 2.

However, our television news partner reports, someone found the photo “embarrassing” and “unprofessional” and reported it as such.

Here’s the KING-5 story.
