I know my generation loves to get 'em (tattoos); I'm not a fan. My friends always try to sell me on 'em, they're like, "Tattoos - that's an artistic expression!" I'm like, "Wow, because it looks like a butterfly above your cooter." I think if you're gonna get a tattoo, just get one - the words "I'm Dumb," that's it. That way in 10 years when you go, "Why'd I get this?!" you can be like, "Ohh, haha, I'm dumb!"
am getting a dragon with its wings spread put on my back.. as soon as I come up with the money for the lil expensive thing..
It's a matter of personal taste, I guess. In my opinion, most tatoos and piercings make a man look like a moron. Nothing to do with morals - just my viewpoint.
I think tatoo's and piercings are ugly. We had our fads too, but like previously said, we could take our bell bottoms off.
One word of advice though for people getting them. My company and many others have a few basic rules.
Tatoo's cannot be visible from any angle while on the job. This means if you reach for something or bend over etc.. they cannot be visible.
No piercings that can be seen may be worn at work. Tongue included.
Right or wrong these things are frowned upon in the corporate world. They do not look professional/business like. So doing something while young can cost you that 100K a year job after college or 15 years down the road. I have seen it happen. My one time roomate was a biker. Had tatoos all over. He was a lead program engineer. He reached out to shake hands after a contract meeting and his shirt sleeves rode up exposing his tats to the client. Client made a comment about em and he was unemployed the next day.
And before you holler discrimination. It is not. A person or company has every right to set the requirements for appearance of the company employees as they are public representatives of the company. Dress codes are legal too.
The military sets hair, tatoos, and uniform standards. The Disney company has one of the strictest policies I've seen forbidding facial hair entirely. They also set hair standards for men and women alike.
All I'm saying is trying to look "cool" may cost you big over the course of your life. Give if/what/where some serious thought before doing something that is that permanent.
On another note - reading through the comments
I think anyone who judges someone by their outward appearance and makes a judgement is the one who is shallow and perhaps needs to readjust their thinking.
I know a" biker" guy who has been tattoo'd from head to foot and you will not find a more generous, intelligent and productive individual, he is one of the nicest people I know.
Many of the cookier looks at universities are sported by some of the most intelligent people.
just another 2c worth
The way they get away with it here is you would be informed up front before the interview that there is a mandatory dress code and conduct code. The anti-discrimination kicks in forcing it to be applied to all employees and not just some. Same rules apply if your the CEO, salesman, or mailroom clerk. Otherwise it would be discrimination
Just like your fellow my friend was one of the kindest, friendliest, and intelligent individuals you could ever meet. Trouble is with human nature. We size someone up in less than 1 sec. That's why first impressions are so important.
Humans have a built in attraction to clear smooth skin. It indicates health to our inner brain which dictates sexual attraction. I find it hard to understand why a woman who works so hard to be attractive would do something that goes so strongly against our natural attraction stimulation when everything else they do is to play into it (lipstick, eyeliner, etc...)
Fashion is the great equalizer I guess
