Dear Experts, Are tattoos more acceptable in the workplace now days? Will tattoos affect your chances of employment? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#421 Sadly, yes. Most employers prefer not to see them (especially if the job is client facing) Cover up if possible. (@gradversity) Q#421 Depends on type of company & where tattoo is. Some companies r more accepting depending on how conservative co. is. (@DebraWheatman) Q#421 I have a tattoo and it has not affected my career. I regret getting it, but it's been a non-issue for me at work. (@EmilyBennington) Q#421 Different fields/employers views on tattoos. Usually better if can be covered up, esp in client-facing jobs. (@juliaerickson) Q#421 I know woman hired at DeutscheBank w/MANY tattoos on arms, not hands, neck or face; she'll cover arms. (@juliaerickson) Q#421 Depends on place of employment. Some more tolerant of tats than others. Best to cover until you know corp culture details. (@DawnBugni) Q#421 Expressive body art: tattoos, jewelry, nose-rings, etc. has potential to offend; keep it covered. (@ValueIntoWords) Q#421 Exceptions 2 every rule; in more creative/alternative industries, tattoos may be acceptable.
