well obviously showing up to an interview with visible full sleeves or neck/facial tats is not gonna play out well for you.

i actually read some thing a while back where this guy had someone do a long term semi permanent tat on his face, then got a job waiting tables just to see what it was like trying to live with ink on your face.

it was pretty interesting. i'll post a link if i feel like looking for it later.

is having tattoos really even viewed as something thats unprofessional anymore i honestly dont know.

its one of those things that i see a lot of internet complaining about, but i never actually see happening. i work with a tonne of people that have them and ive never seen anyone express any sort of derision towards them at all. granted, there are some tattoos that make people look like gigantic dipshits and if i was an employer id take one look and be like "nah dude" but thats more to do with the choice of tattoo and not the fact that they have one


i dont want any tattoos or piercings for that matter so this will never impact my life.

i mean if you got a naked woman on your lower arm and can't cover it up or got face tattoos then yeah i won't hire u but it's no different from not hiring someone with a shit personality or someone who wears a keep calm and carry on t shirt to the interview

you work in a warehouse tho so they tend not to care so much about appearances when hiring. at least in my experience.

i only have two tats, both easily concealed, but i've also been to two different interviews where they peeked out from under my sleeves and the interviewer didn't care. (both warehouse jobs)

the one was an Amazon HR guy, but they hire anyone and everyone so unless it was some overtly racist tat, it wasn't going to make a difference. he did joke and ask if i was in a gang and enjoyed stabbing people.

the other was an entirely meaningless interview to go back to a job i'd quit. just a formality to say i'd been (re) interviewed. HR guy had tats of his own so he just commented on it.

only time they might have worked against me was this one bullshit interview where the guy was actively looking for any reason not to hire me, so my tattoos were pretty inconsequential. dickhead asked me why i didn't have a drivers license and how my relationship with my mother was and other irrelevant and illegal questions.

I've seen senior execs and other higher ups with tattoos (arms, wrists, ankles), shit is normalised now, but they can easily cover that stuff up with suits when they feel like it.

it's only a concern now if you go and get face/neck/hand tattoos (chest as well but no one really goes for such revealing cleavage in professional world usually)

similar thing with piercings, no one gives a crap about small nostril ones, small ear gauges and other small stuff all over your ear but more than that is not ideal.


although I would say people who get tacky generic stuff like big tribal arm pieces and have them out all the time do get a bad initial impression. I guess if you want to walk around with tattoos on display make sure they aren't tacky or offensive.

In my hometowns McDonald's there's a girl who has a sleeve and I complemented her on it.

In general I am big fan of tattoos so I find myself miring at people's tats whenever I see them anywhere.

Tattoos are a perfect example of how overprivileged white male scum are using cultural misappropriation to corrupt once beautiful quasiphilosophical concepts and symbols from infinitely wise native tribesman from thousands of years ago for the sole gratification of their peers calling these once pure and innocent relics "killer ink, bro"

you do work in the back room tho right? so i'm not completely off-base?

my experience with shoprite is similar to my other jobs. they generally don't give a shit about anything when it comes to new hires. they're all just bodies filling positions. tattoos or no.

alright, so pretty much what i did at my last job.

i was under the impression you were at a legit warehouse because you've talked about forklifts in the past iirc. i had pictured the bigger ride on ones.

nah i just take the frozen deliveries off the truck and put them in our freezer whenever my boss cant

it just comes with the perk of having to watch out for dumbasses that dont pay attention so i dont accidentally kill anyone

its not like a driving forklift its one of those electric hand ones
#19
If you have any that are visible with a t-shirt, then I'm not really sure what else you expect.

Not to say I necessarily agree with it, but I'm also not too stupid to release that doing so would disadvantage me - hence why I don't have any, nor would I get any around my face, neck, hands or forearms.

i never even liked using those partly due to idiots nearly getting run over.

mostly because my idiot boss would ask me to use them and give me a retarded amount of time to do it.

like my last day when she expected me to bring out about 10 pallets of shoes to the sales floor in my last hour or two and all the pallets were on the top shelves, unwrapped, with 5 pallets blocking the aisle they were in and nowhere to put them, and no one willing to give me keys.

i clocked out early and left.

I have visible tattoos and a nosering and hold a professional job and I've never felt discriminated against because of it

#22
I don't think tattoos are an issue for most working blue collar jobs, white collar jobs may be another story sad but true their are still alot of people who think having visible tattoos is unprofessional.

FWIW whether or not it is legal to discriminate against against someone for having uncoverable tattoos won't stop a hiring manager or HR rep. from judging that person and simply not hiring without saying that the tattoos were the reason.

They can always say "we found a candidate who is more qualified" I used to get this speech from my dad when I was in my 20's because I was a man with long hair.

I think it really depends on what kind of place you're trying to work at, and what kind of tats you have. Face and head tattoos raise questions

Yeah it's ridiculous. I get that people with tattoos might face hardships in the professional realm, and that's dumb unless you have something that really sticks out as inappropriate like a full face tattoo or whatever, but it's your decision to get body decorations.


Maybe I'd see people with tattoos as a de facto social group in places like East Asia or the Middle East where the very notion of one will alienate you and perhaps land you in criminal trouble, but lol wtf even those people will admit that they're making choices in support of something they care about, and aren't comparable to racial or sexual minorities. That's deluded.

I agree and that was the argument I used against my dad when he kept telling me that my long hair was keeping me from getting a job. Back in the late 80s I had a hiring manager (who had already hired me) tell me during orientation that I would have to cut my hair before I started work so I asked if the same was required of their female employees to which he answered no. I asked him what were the requirements for female employees with long hair and he said that they were required to wear their hair in a pony tail or otherwise pulled back so I told him I was willing to meet those requirements and he said male employees could not have hair longer than below the collar of thier shirt.

I told him that it sounded like discrimination to me to which he had no good answer in fact he said nothing in reply, after a long awkward silence I told him I would seek employment at a more open minded company.

Of course my dad was right about people silently judging me even if it is not their place to do so.

First impressions!

So getting that full sleeve tat enables you the same non-discrimination rights granted to religions?

Then it's protected under the religion class. Hence why some churches can legally acquire and consume entheogens, but getting fired for testing positive for marijuana does not make stoners an oppressed class.

Hardly. You're defending the same actions committed by different people differently because one of them just likes it and the other one believes their fictitious sky fairy told them to.
