I recently came across a Facebook page titled, Tattoo acceptance in the workplace. I even Liked it! I have no issue with tattoos. Or with the people that have them. I even have a few.
But let's face it. Not everyone shares the same opinion. There are hiring managers and recruiters that are more "traditional" when it comes to tattoos. And by more "traditional", I mean they just don't want to see them.
Yes, you have every right to get tattoos, but remember that the employer has the right to not be interested in you as a candidate if you show up to the interview with visible tattoos.
My advice: keep them hidden. Like these professionals do.
