Tout your qualifications, not your tattoos

As the age old saying goes, ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover.’ But is this really the case when employers are searching for fresh talent? There are no laws that currently protect job seekers from discrimination based on appearance. Therefore, what employers take from a first impression is fair game.

According to an article in the Richmond Times- Dispatch, 36% of Americans between the age of 25-29 have at least one tattoo. This age range includes the majority of young professionals who are either actively seeking opportunities to enter the corporate world, or are in need of advancement in their current careers. And depending on which industry or field of work, these tattoos may still be stigmatized.

Although some have their tattoos strategically placed, others may have the forethought. In other words, a crisp collared shirt, a suit or other corporate attire may not properly conceal their ink. If this is the case, laser tattoo removal may be solution to seriously consider. The benefits, and relative ease, of laser tattoo removal may far exceed the stress associated with workplace problems that 8% of tattooed employees reported to have because of their body art according to CNN.

As employers? dress codes become stricter to cover tattoos and piercings, employees are realizing that tattoos are not worth a lifetime of long sleeves, hosiery and turtlenecks.

With an abundance of talent and high unemployment rate, presenting your most professional self in order to secure a job, may now take precedent over the tattoo.
