For most of these entry to mid level client facing roles why would you hire someone with tattoos/piercings/anything to make a client potential not choose you when you can hire someone without any of that? It's not like their is a shortage of talent or applications for positions in stuff like law, investment banking, trading or consultancy. I think Mckinzie gets something like 3x as many applicants just from university of Pennsylvania as it needs for positions world wide every year. They don't want to risk loosing a client because someone didn't like their consultants tattoos. For IB interviews in the UK they usually send half of the group home at lunch and then continue interviewing the other half. They always sent home the people who couldn't be fucked to shave or dress nicely.

Tattoos are forms of self-expression only within the tribe in which they are accepted.  To an outsider, they have no significance other than to indicate to which cultural tribe you belong, and that you accept the cultural values of that tribe.  In USA, 2014,  these cultural tribes are amorphous, generally have no formal entry, and are individuals generally self-identify.  While I personally have no issues with tattoos, I think that it is stupid to expect others to accept your particular cultural values.  This is not anything like discrimination on the basis of gender, race, or sexual orientation, and to draw any such comparisons

I agree with you LA guy but the argument about potential client satisfaction tends to end up having racial, sexist etc applications because fact of the matter is people for shit reasons prefer 30 to 45 year old white males for a majority of things.

Visable tats are like wearing avante grade or goth ninja to the office place. Is it not the same sort of discrimination? yet we all (those of you in a formal workplace) abide by it.

Well until it's illegal to discriminate against people for self inflicted changes in appearance people will continue to do so. If I decide to get a plug in my cheek no one is going to want me to make their pitch book. Regarding internal promotions racism and sexism is likely a problem, but just as an example Goldman has an insane amount of specific programs women and minorities (not of the asian kind sadly) can apply through. When I was interviewing at the bank I'm starting at they told me they were specifically looking to hire women for my role. Strangely enough at a moelis presentation I went to they told me they specifically try to match clients with teams who will make the comfortable, butI suppose with a smaller firm where everyone is client facing that is very important.

We Asians get all of the disadvantages and none of the fringe benefits of being a minority.

Absolutely. I don't share cultural values with a place that believes tattoos impact quality of work, nor do I accept that as a legitimate worldview. Nothing like discrimination – I just think it's myopic. If they wouldn't hire me because I have tattoos, it's not the kind of place I'd work anyway.

Much like dating, these things sort themselves out.

Wouldn't it be awesome if office workers just went in one day en masse in goth ninja fits. I'd love to see that. happy.gif
