    Just don't tattoo your face or neck, and you'll be fine.

    Did I say to not tattoo your face or neck?

    Ahh, yes... I see I did.

    Just say no!

    Lol, I have TMs who are just finding out I have tattoos at all because I usually wear long sleeves during this time of year. I am looking to add a few more this summer, though.

    I'm waiting until I can afford the luxury before I start getting tattoos. I plan on getting a sleeve of all the favorite stuff in my childhood (I.E favorite video games, memories of shows, etc).
  6. Agree with those that say yes to tattoos but not on face or neck limited hand one too! As far as piercings not a face of excessive facial piercings. I probably would not seek advice from someone resembling a bull.

    Neck-facial tattoos = Job Killers.

    At least in this decade...

    Tattoos don't both me. Piercings don't, either. Ultimately, if someone enjoys something that does no harm to anyone else, they should have no negative consequences of it.

    That being said, I think tattoos are useless -- ESPECIALLY names. If that's how you want to memorialize someone, ugh.

    A lot of the people I work with, TMs and up, don't know I have tattoos. I have a semi-big one on my forearm and people always ask if it's new. I'm just like lol no it's been on my arm since I was 18, I've been wearing long sleeves because winter. I do have some facial piercings tho, and stretched ears but no one has ever said anything about them to me. I even passed my TL interview with my old DTL before she was fired. I just want to express myself in a way that I like. I can understand why people would think that having body modifications would make you a bad worker, but it's false.
  11. If I were to get tattoos I would get my favorite stuff on one sleeve like you said and the other sleeve be different tattoos each representing someone who has made an impact on my life and are important to me. Symbolically of course, I don't like portraits. Like a paw print of the imprint we got when my dog died, etc.

    I've thought them all through, all it takes is to actually get them. If I decide to go through with it.

    Yeah, you can think them through properly or get a bunch of stupid ones like my sister.

    I don't care.

    Interviewers might care if they see tats. Or not. Your call.

    We are judged by all sorts of things. Accent, clothes, size, makeup, no makeup, given name, hair, no hair, age, etc. It would seem prudent to stick with coverable tats if there is any doubt.

    I am untattooed. I can't think of anything I would have had tattooed on me 25 years ago that I would still want on me now. I have hired plenty of people who have tattoos--no problem with other people having them, I just don't want any myself. That said, I judge the guy with the monster tat on his face.

    She has a stupid ass nickname of a girl she was friends with 5 years ago, and they're no longer friends. she also has an ice-cream cone on the back of her hand.
  18. Names are only allowed if they are: Children, parents, and pets. If that name don't fit those three categories? Not for tattoo.

    Your children, you either made, gave birth to or adopted. You are always the child of your parents good or bad. And your dog or cat will always be your dog or cat, they can cross the rainbow bridge but they are still your pet.

    I have one name tattoo'd on me, my dog who crossed the Rainbow Bridge last year.. It is in the frame on a portrait of him I wear.
