True now...maybe false in the future. Those nonconformists are all alike.
TRUE, beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Just get one in your arm. Not your neck or forehead. (I don’t have tattoos, and I think less of women that have them.)
Well, it would depend on whether the tatts are visible and what kind of piercings.
I mean many women have pierced ears and people don’t seem to mind that if its 1, 2 or 3.
If the tatts can be covered, it’s not an issue.
Now THERE’S a bulletin!
I did not know this. Next you’ll be telling me my felony convictions also are held against me.
>>>(I dont have tattoos, and I think less of women that have them.)
I’m confident that in my lifetime, it will never be said of a woman, “You know, she’s cute and all...but she’d be totally H O T hot if only she had tattoos...”.
Quite true. I won’t hire anyone with any tattoo that would become visible in general business attire, casual or formal.
If I am interviewing and see any tat in view (or obviously concealed), I conclude the interviewee is 1) stupid 2) rash 3) unable to see the consequences of his/her actions.
Not getting my recommendation to hire. Even if he/she interviews well on the subject matter.
Belly button piercings are hot at hell. A panama city license plate(tattoo on small of back) is not.
I can’t tell you the number of people we have turned down with tattoos. Same with men with earrings. Course we never say that but everyone knows what the standards are. Also, and I have to say I don’t agree with this one - we don’t hire if you are “visibly” overweight. The bummer is I have interviewed numerous excellent technicians but they don’t stand a chance of getting a job and we keep looking....
No -- reeeeeeeeeely? Why, the nerve!
Yeah, but you can take those off...
What is obviously concealed?
I have a banner on my calf, if I were applying for a job, I’s wear long pants or a calf length skirt. You would never know I had one unless you were checking out my great gams very carefully.
