Video: Paul Qui and staff get tattoos to commemorate Qui

Matthew Odam

How much do the employees at Qui believe in Paul Qui’s eponymous restaurant? Enough to prove it with some ink. After Qui decided to get a tattoo symbolizing Rabbit 7 Ways, one of the restaurant’s signature dishes, 15 of his employees jumped on board. Statesman photojournalist Kelly West followed Qui and a group to get their permanent homages at their neighbor, Bijou Studio (1618 E. 6th St.), and chatted with general manager Bill Mann, Qui and several of the staff.
