Few people think of athletes when they hear "job".
Maybe you can show some strippers, too


well that's pretty farking stupid then isn't it?

let's review:  do these folks chasing a ball or swinging from a brass pole  get paid a wage?  do they pay taxes on those wages ?

just cause everyone can't do YOUR idea of  a  dream job doesn't mean that they aren't working any less.

but it must be nice for you to be able to say which jobs are the "real" ones and which aren't.

I was sitting in a well known oil change chain waiting for my car and a woman walked in and asked for an employment application. The manager first ask her a few questions about her abilities and background. He asked her if she had any tattoos that would be visible in their uniform. She said yes, and the manager told her that while she could fill out the application, they would likely pick someone without visible body art. And the job paid a whopping $7.50 per hour.

Think before you ink, people.

Tough shiat, stupid. We all make mistakes from time to time that we have to live with.

When you were looking around at other people working, how many of them  had facial tattoos?

So, in conclusion, I hope you die of starvation before you go full psycho and kill other people.

That final portrait of him is actually nice. I'd have lighted him differently but a nice framing, aperture and lens choice.

I agree, shave the neck beard and grow out his hair. Some cosmetics may help cover his forehead thing until he can afford to have it zapped. That being said, no job? Not even as a cycle courier, builder or short order cook? There has to be something.

God-is-a-Taco: Bonkthat_Again:
But what I realized then, was that tatooing has jumped the shark. I used to believe everyone who had a tattoo had some deep belief about themselves and wanted to express it in ink.

Now, i tend to see more tattoos on shallow people, where that symbol of expression has become a symbol of conformity.

It's like highschool. You're more rebellious for not being "rebellious".
I'm not sure when your epiphany was, but I think tattoos have been this way for quite a while.


If you're getting tattoos to be rebellious, you're doing it wrong.
If you're doing anything to be rebellious and you're over the age of say, 15, you're doing it wrong.
If you're doing anything to be rebellious and you're 18, and thus, a legal adult, you have failed at life.

I can cover all of my tattoos if I want to. I can take my nose ring out. I can change my hair color.  I choose not to because there's one simple reason for all of it: I like the way it looks. But if I had to, I could hide it all.  I feel bad for this guy because he made some stupid decisions with his tattoos, but odds are, he likes the way he looks (even if he has some regrets since he can't get a job.)  At the same time, as others point out, is there any reason why he keeps shaving his head?  And that beard -  he really should, let it go.  Even if he loves it, it will grow back at a later date.  Having it certainly isn't helping his situation.  Also, it's not terribly manly, but put some concealer makeup on the face tattoo.  I'm sure he could, if not completely cover it, minimize it.

All said, being on the Internet like that probably did him no favors whatsoever.

I do feel for him, as he could be qualified and intelligent and a hard worker. As many of us who have tattoos/"unique" appearances know, though, we usually have to prove ourselves before we can just be ourselves because people tend to not ultimately care, once you have shown them you're good at what you do. He can't get past that first part, though.

Tom_Slick: Uncle Pooky: Sorry, but I'm calling BS on this, speaking from experience. My first job after school was a graphic designer for a telephone directory publisher. The position was open because the guy I was replacing was transferring to a bigger (read: more important) office. He had a tribal dragon on the side of his bald head. Everyone loved him, and the majority of the managers/sales staff in that company were somewhat-to-very conservative.

Personality and hard work can overcome quite a bit. I'm betting this guy is lacking in both areas.

Maybe because his looks like prison ink, I work with artists and many of them have head and neck tats, but none of them look like prison ink.


The guy I knew - his tattoo was pretty much along the same lines as this guy, style-wise. Straight black ink, faded from age and pretty amateurish to begin with. But regardless - head tattoos are not a be all-end all you'll never get a job ultimatum.

Except the guy with "Fark You" on the forehead. That one probably is.
 
2013-05-17 05:28:35 PM

Bonkthat_Again: "What do you have against tattoos?"


I would have told him:

A. Every tattoo ever looks like total shiat, so why would I want to pollute my body with something that looks shiatty?
B. Tattoos are a form of self-reporting of idiocy.

But they look good on you, chief, fer realz.

My Grandfather, who was quite devout, had a tattoo of the Sacred Heart on his arm. The only problem was that by the time I knew him, the tat was not in it's original dimensions, and frankly looked like a spikey tomato. kinda turned me off tats. (And it was a really funky shade of green..)

But I would take a nice tat over some of the ear gauging I have seen. Honestly, unless you have some link to tribal africa, it looks gross. I think the plastic surgeons are going to have a field day in about 15 years, when those body parts start saggin...

Sheesh, if he is that bent out of shape over no one wanting to hire him he should just start his own business.  Or start doing freelance work where people don't need to look at his poor life choices everyday.  There are plenty of choices out there aside from belly-aching about not being able to find a job.

He made his bed, now he can sleep in it.

EbolaNYC: For reference... (really what the fark IS that, a skull? You'd think she'd have that fixed by someone who was good at fixing shiatty tattoos)


Rough area to begin with, but looking at it compared to her arms, I'm thinking it's not done yet. I don't imagine many people could get that area of their body tattooed for a prolonged period of time, so it's probably a work in progress.
 
2013-05-17 05:31:14 PM
I like some tattoos, my wife has a nice one on her ankle. But every time I have thought about getting one I stare at the design for an hour or so. By then it starts looking stupid and I think, "do I want that on my body forever?" and I pass.

Someday I may find something meaningful to me that I want to ink on my body, but so far nothing.

I don't like tattoos.  Or facial piercings.  But there is a huge range.  Someone can have, for example, a small forearm tattoo, and I might think to myself, I just don't get why you want to say the same thing, every day, for your entire life.  But when someone does the freakshow thing, especially on the face, to me that's a form of speech, and it's screaming, not talking.  It's putting your "personality" right into my personal space.

So for example if I go to a restaurant and the waitperson is covered in huge tattoos, I don't go back.

Could be intelligent and a hard worker, but obviously makes/made bad decisions which is why it will be difficult to get a job. Automatically, the interviewer knows the interviewee has made or makes bad decisions. Why would you want someone like that in your company? Even if that is in the past, you can't help but wonder if that person will not make another bad decision. Also, if the interviewee is interviewing for a position interfacing with people, immediately and rightfully so, that person will be judged and the company employing them will be judged. How can you trust someone that has obviously made such a bad decision? These guys don't deserve a chance, they made the decision to get inked. We are not talking about a physical deformity or disability. I personally don't mind tatoos, however I would never date a girl with a lower back tatoo and wouldn't ask the guy with a Charles Manson tat to house sit for me.

You should learn what a stereotype is.  Hint, it's not a universal truth, though it can be a widely accepted truth with some exceptions.

In this case, the stereotype is accurate, with the extremely rare exceptions of elite athletes and entertainers.  Now back to your scheduled trolling.

See this is exactly why one should get tattoo that's can't be covered up at work, because people like this are shallow and they judge simple by looks. I'm not saying it's right, I'm saying they exist, and why most of them don't have the chutzpa to announce it so publicly, they are very common place in our societies and will make tattooed people's lives harder.

First, find me someone who has never made a bad decision.
Second, lots of people have made catastrophically bad decisions and they get hired all the time, because you can't see them.  I used to know someone who is a horrible alcoholic who frequently urinates on himself wherever he finally passes out for the night.  He looks employable by all normal people standards, he has no tattoos, he somehow keeps a job, but makes ridiculously bad decisions on a daily/nightly basis.  He also drives drunk all the time, but just hasn't been caught (yet.)  Just a small example.

The lower back tattoo thing is stupid.  I have a small tattoo there, and it's the one most people don't know I have, since not many people have seen it/have the opportunity to see it since it's almost always covered by my clothes. It was just the right place for that piece of art.

So is there an actual rational argument against hiring someone with visible tattoos?  I'm seriously asking here.  It just seems like we as a society have decided, despite how ubiquitous tattoos are, that having tattoos is bad and makes you a bad (or at least ethically suspect) person, and few people seem to be questioning that very dubious assertion.  Why do we perpetuate this?

I understand, and I don't mean to come off as saying, "ZOMG I *hate* people with tattoos!"  I don't.  But they don't appeal to me.  Well, there are things about me that don't appeal to others.  I remember dating a woman some years ago who, at the end of the relationship, felt the need to deliver a long list of what she considered to be my deficiencies (these were all personality things, nothing to do with appearance).  As she ticked them off, I thought to myself, "Gee...those are all the things I like about myself."

So it's all a matter of what individuals do, and don't like.  The fact that I do like one thing and don't like another doesn't mean I'm saying that it's right to like what I like, and wrong to like what I dislike.  But we're all free to hold our own likes and dislikes.  There are times (most of the time, in fact) when aspects of my personality are kept hidden.

By the way, if I can ever understand a tattoo, it's in the rare cases when it's a close personal connection, and I can't think of a better example than your own mom's handwriting.  Skulls, dragons, barbed wire not so much.

Hard to hide a skeletal dragon on the side of your head. Having worked with the dude, I can say pretty confidently that he made no attempt to hide it from the company when he interviewed for a job there, and won the managers over during the interview because he was very friendly, professional and eager.

A lot of people in society today forget that how you act as a person is a determining factor in how things go for you. It's not just what you know and can do.

inner ted: your precious poster is a stereotype.

i simply offered examples that were counter to the point being made & several folks seem to have had their worlds imploded.

as to whether or not statistically it is a rare exception for a tattooed person to be upstanding - don't know, i haven't researched it that far.

but i'd dare say that i've researched it a hell of a lot more than any of you that are acting so ass hurty now.

sheesh you guys are awful sensitive about your poster

/or maybe you just don't like being shown how wrong you are

*shrugs*



The poster is meant to be a little humorous as well....they could have said "difficult to appear professional, and hence difficult to acquire a job where workplace professionalism is a must", but that's not as funny ya see?  I'm sorry if you have tattoos in an area that was being mocked by the poster and were offended...but holding up celebrities and athletes as proof of acceptable appearance/behavior is potato:

austerity101: So is there an actual rational argument against hiring someone with visible tattoos?  I'm seriously asking here.  It just seems like we as a society have decided, despite how ubiquitous tattoos are, that having tattoos is bad and makes you a bad (or at least ethically suspect) person, and few people seem to be questioning that very dubious assertion.  Why do we perpetuate this?


Having tattoos doesn't make you a bad person, but when you choose to tattoo your face, you do so knowing the way society feels about that.

Like it or not, you are a representative of your employer, and if society at large doesn't "approve" of your choice, that's reason enough not to hire you.  It's business, not a character assessment.

Society doesn't approve of many other things, and we pass laws from letting them discriminate against those things.  So the only reason we allow this is because it's legal?  That doesn't seem rational--it seems sad.

In the future, people regularly permanently attach and implant pieces of technology to various parts of their bodies as 'art'. Why, in 2340, the President has a glowing rod coming out of his head, and audio systems  implanted inside of young girls stomachs are quite commonplace.
