    Unfortunately, no. It's LA so some assholes think it's a license to wear flip flops. (not really but close)

    So interesting that you assume I'm talking about American business.


    Again, just because someone's made a personal choice about something doesn't make it acceptable to make a judgement on their abilities that are completely unrelated.

    The point is not that it's discriminatory, the point is that it's stupid.

    If you have tats on your hands, face or neck there are a lot of industries you might as well not apply to. Is there anyone with face or hand tattoos who wants to go into those industries though? Tattoos shouldn't be an issue as long as you're not retarded and cover them up. No ones gonna see your sleeve as long as you never roll up your sleeves. I interviewed at google and apple, I can't remember what the roles were I think it was strategy or something so not as techy, but it seemed just as rigid as banking.

    Even if we were talking about Australian business or wherever it is your from it's not like Macquarie has a bunch of MDs with prison tats.

    You might not be able to make a judgment about their ability, but you can make a judgment about their judgment.

    This, especially in job roles where there is not a demonstrable single skill that determines ability and it is more to do with determination and work ethic like say IB or consultancy how much can a candidate actually want the job if they either did not conceal the tattoo or got one in a stupid place to begin with.

    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.

    Not everyone works for a small start up / creative agency / whatever. C'mon already. Then again, you defended Hirsch so I don't even know if you're trolling or not at this point.

    If you want to pursue lots of lucrative careers, having a visible tattoo shows bad judgement. If having a visible tattoo is that important to you, adjust your career goals.

    Sorry dude. That's the reality of what things are currently like even though they're changing.

    If you're interested in an industry where you're meeting face to face with clients, it's probably a smart idea to get tattoo's you can cover up. Even if your employers don't care, their clients might and that hurts the employers bottom line and therefore you.

    I have one already and would love to get more in time, but I'd never get anything that I couldn't cover up with a half sleeve shirt (i.e. scrubs). It's like wearing shorts to a formal interview. It's just not right in the setting.

    Anyway, this is all getting old. I don't even care anymore. I obviously don't care what other people do, but I have to think about this in terms of industry.

    You're right. It's 2014 and a lot of people in management still associate tattoos with bikers, skinheads, and prison. Deal with it.

    Judgement that you may feel the need to express yourself in a way that that person may feel inappropriate. Listen, if you don't like it, strike it out on your own, or be in fashion, whatever. You can make choices, but you can't force people to be okay with them.

    I just call them as I see them. I see a bunch of people here pre-judging people based on their appearance. You can hide behind 'That's just the way it is.', but that's just wrong. Racists and bigots use the same argument tactic. I would argue that people who would be put off by tats or piercings aren't worth having as clients or business associates. The world still has a lot of growing up to do, and by perpetuating the myth that personal appearance matters to anyone but the individual, you're only hindering progress.

    Like I said before, it's not right. Feel free to hold whatever shallow belief you want, but don't pretend that your view is anything short of asshattery.
