Quote:They USED to be cool and for really tough and rebellious people and criminals and army personnel, but now pretty much everyone has one. It's just passe at this point. I could understand if you get a tattoo to honor a family member or the death of a loved one (Or close friend.), but a lot of people just do it to be "Cool!". And I REALLY don't get people who have tattoo sleeves. I mean, you tattoo your entire arm or leg? Maybe there is something to tattoos being addicting, because clearly that's not normal. To get to your question though, I can see both sides. In most cases, I don't think that it would be a problem, but as you said if it involves a professional job, it certainly can be. I also think that everyone discriminates to a certain extent (We do it all the time when we date.), and while I don't agree with it, I do tend to believe that it should be up to the employer. I mean, after all, they are paying and providing for you.
Great point. I mean in most jobs, employers can tell you what you can and can't wear. You are representing their company, after all. If you don't agree, don't take the job. Tats should fall under the catergory of clothing. If you can cover them up, then I can't imagine the'd be an issue at all.
