I have gotten crap for not having a tattoo. I was at a friend's bachelor party and his brother asked, "What do you have against tattoos?" My jaw dropped. Wha? "Uh, nothing." To which he responds, "Then why don't you have any?

I basically told him I don't have a specific symbol or picture that can define me, as i feel i'm constantly evolving. I neglected to mention that I'd probably have a boil or cyst ruin it for me at some point (skin problems).

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.

If you're going to tattoo something about yourself, especially something on your forehead, make sure it doesn't disqualify you from every job except a night Janitor at a Buddhist temple.

You have a face tat don't you?

How you choose to look defines you as an individual. Do you have the skills to conform to social mores when necessary? That's a HUGE, if not why would anyone want you? It's the same as walking into the interview wearing a ripped up Slayer t-shirt. If you are unable to tell that the situation demands professionalism then you're going to be a crap employee. When you choose to tattoo yourself in your face you're telling people "I don't feel the need to conform." Which is fine, but it's your problem, not a problem for anyone else.

I don't really think of it as "saying" anything (even though I have words on two of mine, plus, I have a very small, "Mom" in my mom's handwriting from a letter she sent me.  It's just... I don't know. My skin, at this point.  Example: the other day, I was wearing a light colored shirt and I said to my boyfriend "Ugh, I think something red got mixed in the laundry" and then I realized, I was just seeing my arm though the shirt, hence, why there was pink on the shirt.  It's just part of me, no different than having green eyes every day of my life.

Two questions:

1) Why would she not ask him to remove his hat? I've never known a single interviewer who would take someone wearing a hat during an interview seriously.

2) Why would he take his hat off? He obviously knew it was offensive (which is why he wore the hat during the interview), so why think that day 1 on the job is a good place to start showing it off?

I've been in a position where I have sat on interview panels at various companies for, oh, about fifteen years now.

Having visible tattoos makes me think twice about hiring you - not because I have anything against tattoos, per se, but because of what it tells me about your judgement. Having visible tattoos means that you are willing to more-or-less permanently modify your body in a way that everyone can see for what may or may not be a temporary situation. It tells me that you probably don't think too far ahead about the consequences of your actions.

This can be somewhat or even completely mitigated if the tattoo is actually unique and expressive. That indicates that you put some serious thought into it and it does actually signify something about you. Good examples would be tattoos of, say your military unit or a tribute to a deceased relative.

But if your tattoo is generic, and especially if it's some random writing in a language you don't actually read or some random animal that every single person of your gender has tattooed on their body, I'm going to assume that you just (a) succumb easily to peer pressure, (b) are desperate to seem edgy or hip, and/or (c) don't think too far into the future about the consequences of your actions.

In other words, I'm perfectly happy to have someone break the rules of convention, but only if they actually have something to say.

Bwahaha: I like to think of myself as a non-conformist, and strongly disagree with people judging others by what they wear, or what they look like. However, tats have become so common as to amount to conformity. For example, it is refreshing to see a young woman WITHOUT a tramp stamp across her tailbone.

//especially when disrobing for the first time together.


I don't see it as conformity or non-comformity, just a personal choice.  Not unlike most things we do/don't do to/for ourselves.   But maybe that's just me.  I got my first tattoo (the dreaded "tramp stamp" - though it is small) the night before I had surgery that I didn't want to have and was nervous about.  I have no idea ho wthe two things came together in my head, but they did.  Most of mine have reasons behind them (including one that covers some scarring on my arm) and they're all sentiments/art that are important to me.  Not that I feel the need to explain or justify my choices for my own body, in a general sense. It's pertinent to the conversation here.

I know people who have tattoos for various reasons, and who have them because they liked something on the wall and felt like getting it. Whatever, it's their bodies.  I have a feeling that someday, tattoos won't even be permanent, or they will be much easier to remove.  Though I can't imagine doing that to any of mine, because they simply are a part of me at this point, I think it's a weird thing to care about, either way, whether or not people have them.

The odd thing is,a lot of the sentiment here is "they're so common, they aren't even rebellious or non-conformist anymore" (not that I think most people have gotten tattoos to be non-conformist, at least not for quite some time) but it's also "oooh! bad decision making!"  The two are completely opposed as thoughts regarding something that is really inconsequential (someone's skin has some color in it) when you get down to it.

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.

the money is in the banana stand: 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.


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.

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.

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.

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.

Bonkthat_Again: I have gotten crap for not having a tattoo. I was at a friend's bachelor party and his brother asked, "What do you have against tattoos?" My jaw dropped. Wha? "Uh, nothing." To which he responds, "Then why don't you have any?

I basically told him I don't have a specific symbol or picture that can define me, as i feel i'm constantly evolving. I neglected to mention that I'd probably have a boil or cyst ruin it for me at some point (skin problems).

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.

If you're going to tattoo something about yourself, especially something on your forehead, make sure it doesn't disqualify you from every job except a night Janitor at a Buddhist temple.


I just reply saying that I don't have any modification that I wasn't born with and am going to keep it that way.  Usually it is a bit more lewd like "I plan to die with as many holes as I started with"

I don't have a problem with people modifying their bodies.  But that doesn't change my opinion that I think it looks completely retarded.

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.

Tattoos can be beautiful. Nose piercings are often, but not always, unattractive. Lip piercings are unacceptable under any circumstances.

scottydoesntknow: Zarquon's Flat Tire: My mom once hired a guy for a mechanic position.  He wore a hat during the interview.  First day of work he showed up with 'fark You' tattooed on his forehead.

She had to fire him, AT&T policy.  She said he seemed like a nice guy though.

Two questions:

1) Why would she not ask him to remove his hat? I've never known a single interviewer who would take someone wearing a hat during an interview seriously.

2) Why would he take his hat off? He obviously knew it was offensive (which is why he wore the hat during the interview), so why think that day 1 on the job is a good place to start showing it off?


1)  No idea.  My early days when getting jobs as a 15 year she always stressed the importance of dressing nicely for an interview.  And even after I got the job she tried to impress on me that you dress for the job you want, not the job you have.  Maybe it was a fedora or bowler with dress slacks and button down shirt, I just don't know.

2)  Again I don't know.  Back around 2000 could you be fired after 15 minutes of working and then collect a year of unemployment?  This is part of why I remember this story, because Why did he think it would be ok once he working?

The neckbeard is typical Pakistani-extraction Muslim (as is the name).  Which he counteracts with a Buddhist tattoo and a Taoist tattoo.  For all we know, he has Jesus and L. Ron Hubbard on his calves.

My only problem with that chart is the forearms marked as a job-free zone.  I know two people in public jobs making pretty good money that are sleeved out.  Of course, they wear long sleeves to work at all times, so there's that.


Yea, that's the only one I don't agree with either. I've seen quite a few guys with full arm sleeves who are making great money, but they wear long-sleeves all day. Once it starts creeping on the hands though, you run into trouble.

Re #1: I don't think you can do that. Physically inspecting someone in an interview is a huge no-no. Perhaps they are bald or have a scar or birthmark or something and they're just self-conscious about it. For all you know asking them to take their hat off might be a huge dick move.

Re #2: I assumed he figured once he got hired he was golden. If he's dumb enough to have fark you on his face... you know.
