    Anyone ever have a problem with other people concerning their tattoos? Mainly for people with visible tattoos such as sleeves, do you seem to catch the "bad guy" image from others? Has it ever affected your occupational life in terms of getting a job or being treated differently at the workplace because of it? I know in most cases, tattoos can be covered up but has anyone ever been denied an opportunity because of their tattoos?

    I guess this can go for piercings too.

    :bigthumb: makes me feel better knowing that people with sleeves aren't treated unfairly, atleast in your case. I don't know much about tattoos at all (which is why i'm here) but for some reason I feel that people may view tattoos such as sleeves as being...unacceptable in a work enviroment such as yours. I don't feel that way personally but you know how some people can be flat out closed minded about it.

    I haven't had a problem with my tatt (it's small, on my back, high between the shoulders) People rarely see it at work.. but I HAVE been treated a bit different for my piercings. I have 15 in my ears and one in my lip, People dpn't generally see the nips, so those aren't a problem.. but the facial piercings have made it hard to get a job in the normal range o the work force. I need ot get a retainer for my next round of appliying anf interviews.

    it's the only thing keeping me from stretching my lobes to like 1/2" which is what i'd love, but i know it would make things tough for me when i go job hunting. i'd LOVE it if people were evolved enough to accept things like this in a professional setting.

    Yeah, I lucked out and just work for a pretty laid back company. But, not all companies will hold the same policies. I still won't get a tattoo in a spot that I can't cover just incase.....

    good info. thanks for the link

    I'd love to get a sleeve done but i'm afraid of how it would affect my life later as far as work goes. I know i can always wear long-sleeved shirts and it wouldn't be a problem, but just the possibility of being denied a job because of it makes me :confused:
