Tattoos and work

Interesting discussion on another board--what is your view on tattoos in the workplace? More and more people are getting tattoos removed, in order to have a better shot at getting a job.

I can mostly cover my tattoos when I have to, but depending on clothing, they might peek out a bit. I think my tattoos have maybe prevented me from getting one job. But truthfully, I don't think I would have been happy with that job anyway.

Would I get them removed to go work for some stuffy corporation? Not on your life, recession or no recession.

I guess I'm lucky though, because in this town tattoos are common. I have heard that there is A LOT of prejudice elsewhere against tattooed people. Hell, even a family doctor in this town has a huge tattoo on her back--an awesome dragon!
