Tattoos are taboo at work. Yes? No?

    It seems tattoos are becoming more common. Does your place of work have a "tattoo policy"? What do you think about tattoos? Do you have one? I have seen some tattoos that are amazing while others are not.

    Removing tattoos a big step for job hunters : Naples Daily News

    Very interesting article about people who are having tattoos removed by lasers in order to fit in to the current job market.

    I have 2 smaller tattoos but in inconspicuous places. I was at the lake last week and I kid you not, 90% of the young women (OK, I'm 40, you caught me) had large tattoos somewhere on their body, a lot on upper thighs and trunk so they can be covered. I think in 10 years so much of the population will have them that the public perception will change and showing them at work will be a non-issue.

    We have people that are more self conscious about their tattoos than others. It isn't that big of a deal at my work. I haven't seen anyone come to work with an uncovered sleeve yet

    this topic has been beaten to death.
    nothing is inherently wrong with tattoos or the people have them.
    that said, i would think someone is a little off their rocker if they have a tattoo on their face.

    They used to make a big deal about tattoos at our facility. But in the last year or so they have loosened up. We have a girl on our floor with sleeves that are beautiful. Patients ask her all the time about them!

    I have a tattoo on my ankle. I am the director of nursing at my facility. My patients love my tat and ask me about it all the time. We do not have a written policy on it.

    My hospital is adopting a policy that we have to have the corporate logo embroidered our uniforms. Maybe their next bright idea will be for us to all have the logo tattooed on our forehead.

    I hope they are paying for your uniforms then!

    Tattoos have to be covered where I work. Makes it a little hard for one of the CNA's who has little stars tattooed in the web of each thumb
