    tattoos and jobs...

    What are peoples thoughts?

    I want tattoos on my wrists, not vulgar and in ur face, but nevertheless, i want them... the only doubt in my mind is a future employer might see them and think less of me? or go out of their way to employ someone else because of it.,

    i know some people here have tattoos, anyone have them on their lower arms, and ever found it that bit harder to find employment or anything due to them?

    im in 2 minds...

    Thoughts please...

    answers on a postcar..... answers in a reply

    i love tats but i would only have one if it could be covered up,
    on your wrist is a difficult one cause yes you can cover it up but you dont want to be wearing a long sleeve shirt in the summer do you

    hmmm, see, i dont think i'd ever be in the situation where it would have to be covered up, except for an interview maybe.

    afterall after i get the job, they cant fire me for having a tattoo (discrimination or something?).

    (strictly speaking they cant, not hire you because you have tattoos, but they can keep looking for a more suitable candidate )

    Technically they can let you go, because they took you on and offered the job on the impression they got when you had the interview..

    This came up in a managers meeting i was at the other week.

    They would never be able to tell you that was the reason but for sure they will just say you are "not suitable" for the role.

    I doubt I would employ someone who was covered in tattoos.. but it depends on the job I suppose.
