Ummm... nope and nope. Your eyes are just way too precious to take any chance with something like that. Besides, the appearance just creeps me the hell out. To me, some of the main reasons for getting tattoos is the the art, beauty and the individualism and blackout tattoos has none of that. I of course don't care if others get them, but just find no appeal in them.
What is your opinion on tattoos and the work place?
Are there certain careers where the visibility of a tattoo should matter or should it never matter?
What are your thoughts around tattoos and professionalism? Do they go hand in hand? Or is it the performance of the individual that should be the bottom line?
What has been your experience around tattoos and the work place? What is the location, city, that this experience has taken place?
So to all the tattooed people out there....how are your experiences with being tattooed in the workplace? I work in the definition of corporate America and find tattoos to be far and wide (as much as I can see). I have ran into a few people with visible work but usually they "get away with it" due to insane skill at their job. I once met an administrator with a panther smack across his throat!
I understand from many conversations I've had with the people I work with that tattoos are considered "bad" or "poor decisions", and I usually defend the nameless tattooed people that are commented on while in such a conversation. This being said, I will not stop my dream of being covered, (to hell what they say!). I can do my job regardless with what my body looks like. I just am waiting for the day when someone makes a comment such as mentioned before and I can just lift a pant leg or roll a sleeve up and say..."so, am I a 'bad person' as well?"
