post #116971 of 117666
I would hire a dude with a full body tat if he was a good programmer. On the other hand, I'm not going to hire him to pitch school principals, probably. In creative fields, it's a toss up. If you want a ton of tats, cool. I think that they could look cool. But don't get pissy by the fact that your self-expression may limit your career paths.

Law and finance are generally really boring, BTW.

I absolutely agree that tattoos can affect your career in certain fields. No argument. Presentation matters, we all know that.

What I don't understand is why Doctor A's career path is negatively affected when patient X decides to doubt him based on his tattoos. The patient either gets over it, or goes and sees another doctor in the same hospital. Unless you're paid per patient like in some small firm or you run your own clinic, I can't see how this is a big deal.

If you're a salesman or some type of negotiator, sure it's a big deal if a client doesn't like you. It seems a different scenario though.

 Do you know how referrals work?

If patient X goes back to Doc that referred him/her and goes, "I didn't really like them," then the person referring them is going to start sending patients elsewhere if it happens enough.

 

It's really not that hard to understand. This is different than being an ER doc where the patient has absolutely no choice.

hendrix - one thing that might be playing into it is that in NZ/Aus it seems tattoos are much more varied and accepted (especially in NZ with the Maori heritage/influence). Almost all teachers have tattoos  here - visible ones, and no one cares and it doesn't change employment prospects because getting a tattoo, in of itself, doesn't really reveal anything about the person other than they wanted a tattoo (assuming it's not a political one, or a swastika, or a 'fuck you yuppies' or something else). In my last job there was myself and one other staff member under 35 without a tattoo, in this job it's pretty similar.

 

Maybe other places are still hung up on it, I don't know. Sure seems that way.

Judgement in what regard? Judgement to have a different view than you? Deal with it. I'm sure they're over your holier than thou attitude.

I don't care if someone has tattoos. In my industry it doesn't really matter (or at least it doesn't seem to). I imagine that if I had my own company, I still wouldn't care.

Where would you draw the line? Neck tattoos? Facial tattoos? Teeth filed into pointy tips? The knobby things people get inserted beneath their skin? I think the issue is that certain choices eliminate your ability to fly under the radar. They keep the focus on you when the focus should be on the work, the pitch, whatever. This matters in some industries, and to act as though customer perceptions about body modifications is equivalent to racism or sexism is insulting.

Dammit, Moo, look what you've done.

Dude, you missed it-- DP92 got a tattoo on his calf depicting a boat shoe filled with cash, but when his clients found out, they all dropped him. Now he's broke and living in ManofKent's basement
