Tattoos Make You Unhireable?

Do you have a tattoo? Do you think that tattoos can keep you from getting certain types of jobs or starting a new career?

Personally, I think the world is changing, and we've become a lot more accepting of tattoos as a means of self-expression. But I DO know that not everyone agrees.
Let me know what YOU think!

I'm covered in tattoos and I have 3 part time jobs and I don't cover them either. 1 of my jobsvis a government job. IMO, if they don't like them they can kiss my behind as I walk away. life's too short to care what narrow-minded people think of what I choose to put on my body.
That's so awesome lol. @RiggaFoster, I always love your attitude.
honestly, I think strict dress codes in regards to tattoos are dated and archaic. yes, if it's a pornographic or vulgar tatoo, you may want to have it placed in a spot that's easy to cover, but tattoos are as common as ear piercings.
Yeah, I don't know why everyone is so scandalized by someone's decision to get a tattoo. I think maybe because it was considered kind of a brusque or lower quality thing to do back in the day.
way way waaaaaaay back in the day
The olden times lol.
it would depend on what it is and where. you can't have a naked woman on your forarm and work at a children's place.
That's probably true lol. Maybe you can tape some paperdoll clothes on her.
that's one way to do it 😂
I can be creative sometimes.
but remember, it also depends on what job and career you are going into
Hahahaha I wonder if there's any tattoo artists that don't have tattoos themselves out there.
@danidee that would be funny xD
I'm sure there has to be at least one who exists! The world's a big place lol.
I'm 23 and I have a big tattoo on my leg and where I work my boss does not mind. My old job where I used to wear long pants during the summer and winter that my old boss has never saw it till I had to go back to work because I have left my wallet up there and I changed out of my work clothes to shorts and I had went behind the counter to get it and he had ask me why I was back then look at my leg and went "what's that on your leg!? You know it will never come off. You'd be having that forever and regretting it." and etc etc. but I did it for me. it was a birthday present and I wanted to show everyone that music helps me escape from this chaotic world and that I play the saxophone back in high school, but yes I think the world is changing because a lot of people are getting hired even when their tattoos are showing. I just saw a guy today where I used to work and he's covered in tattoos and in the book it says no tattoo must be showing but since it's on his neck and arms it didn't matter. you can't let your employee wear a long sleeve shirt inside a hot store if you want him to overheat
It's true! I think that whole long sleeve shirt thing is just inhumane!

Awesome Idols With Tattoos
More and more we are seeing idols getting tattoos and I think its GREAT that their companies let them do this. In the past I'm sure it would have been a HUGE no-no to get any ink done. Here are a few of my favorites: Changsub of BTOB His lift chest, arm, and back of his shoulder are covered in quotes! Ravi VIXX Ravi has three tattoos!! One is on his right arm says "Forever Young," another says YOLO on his chest and the third one is pretty new - its roman numerals (meaning unknown!) in his forearm. Jay Park How could he not have been on this list lol LOOK AT THEM ALL (and in this pic, his shirt is on!) Hyorin Sistar Hyorin has a huuuuuuge cross on her stomach which must have seriously hurt. Taehyun WINNER Taehyun has a lot of really tiny tattoos and I absolutely love him for them. Jaejoong JYJ Actually, all the members of JYJ have the other members' names tattooed on their body! They're extremely close :3 Hyuna How sweet is this tattoo though?! Taeyang He's often covered in fake tattoos but THERE ARE REAL! Taeil Block B He's working on two full sleeves!!! Zico Block B Okay so really I should just be listing all of Block B at this point hahahaha Amber Along with these in the picture, Amber has one small tattoo on her left wrist! Youngguk BAP THERE IT IS. Junhyung B2ST A fan of words, Junhyung's tattoos are all just lettering! Ilhoon BTOB Ilhoon coming at you in Spanish! It means No one can be like God. CAP Teen Top CAP! You are no longer a teen! GD The king himself. Who else?! Who are your favs?!
K-Idols with tattoos pt. 1
So I know in South Korea tattoos are still somewhat taboo and a very sensitive subject but as a girl with tattoos this is a topic I'm very passionate about. As I stated I have 3 tattoos so obviously I'm all for them. I don't like how they have such a bad stigma because now a days they're a form of expression and they're art. They're a form of strength, encouragement, reminders and memorials. So I kinda wanted to do a card all about k-idols (the ones I could find anyway) who went against the grain and got tattoos despite the way they're viewed. #1 Winner's Mino Meaning: "then the LORD your God will restore your fortunes and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you." I don't know the meaning of the one on his back. #2 Topp Dogg's Jenissi. Meaning: Left arm says Stop And Play and his right arm says Let Me Hit That (xD oh Jenissi) #3 Jay Park Meaning: Music, family, crew and his morals. #4 Teen Top's CAP #5 BigBang's GD Meaning: Vita Dolce means beautiful and sweet life, Moderato is a musical term meaning moderate tempo in Italian. The one on his shoulder is from one of his songs the others are unknown. #6 JYJ's JaeJoong Meaning: upper back means "The pleasure of the mighty are the tears of the poor", "hope to the end" and "a song will outlive all sermons in the memory". #7 Block B's Zico Meaning: right side of chest "John the apostle" and a portrait of his mom when she was younger on the right side of his chest #8 BAP's Bang Yongguk Meaning: left shoulder "Do what you like and luv what you do" forearm "make art not war" #9 BigBang's Taeyang Meaning: His faith, Jesus' death and resurrection across his back and a cross along his side. #10 FTISLAND's Lee Hongki Meaning: back of arms freedom, forearms skeletons and keys on shoulder. #11 Beast's Junhyung Meaning: "seize the day, put no trust in tomorrow" right forearm, "if I die tomorrow I would never regret" upper left arm and "born again still your son" right chest #12 Block B's Taeil Meaning: "777" symbols good fortune, 2 dice, MVP and LUCKY #13 BTOB's Changsub Meaning: "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God." (Isaiah 41:10) "Do not be defeated from yourself" #14 BTOB's Ilhoon Meaning: "No one can be like God" #15 WINNER's Tae Hyun Meaning: tattoo on his right arm is the name of the artist, bat, a banana and STAY GOLD. #16 BTOB's Lim Hyunsik #17 Brown Eyed Girls Miryo #18 SISTAR's Hyorin #19 BoA
