You have to cover up at this club

In January, The Straits Times reported that dance club Genesis wanted partygoers with conspicuous tattoos to cover up if they want to be let in.

And if they flash their body art while inside the Marina Bay Sands nightspot, they risk being banned.

Genesis' ban has been in place since it opened on Dec 24 at the Marina Bay Sands Crystal Pavilion.

Efocus Entertainment, which manages Genesis' club nights, said the ban is to create a "friendly, comfortable environment".
"We filter the crowd to lower the risks of fights or unrest because those with tattoos tend to attract a lot of unwanted attention," said a spokesman.
