Hello everyone,

I am curious to know about workplace experiences you have been through with yourself having tattoos or others.
I would like to get a couple tattoos, but in places that will be visible with a short sleeve on. I’d like to work in the mental health field and with children, but I do not want to jeapordize anything with this controversy.

Too many factors. Different cultures react differently to tattoos, and the type of tattoo. One thing is certain, outside of a few unique workplaces, tattoos generally don’t work in your favor. At best they are treated as neutral, but never positive.

It really boils down to personal choice and whether or not you are willing to accept the potential downside.
