Tattoos in the Workplace

Tattoos are becoming very fashionable.  However, your employer may not agree and your chances of getting a job or getting promoted could be jeopardized.

Employers have the right to hire individuals who will best represent the image of their company.  If that image does not include tattoos, you should think twice about the placement of the tattoo.

Also, your current employer may not mind seeing tattoos on their employees, but what if you want to change careers in the future?  Tattoos are permanent.  They can be removed but never completely go away.

When making the decision about getting a tattoo, try to place it where it will not be seen while you’re on the job.  How you want to display it on your own time is up to you.
