Should tattoos be accepted in the workplace in this day and age?
Unless it depicts something that is publicly considered to be offensive, why not?
Should they be accepted?--yes. That being said, just remember that everyone is going to make assumptions about you based on what you wear and what tattoos you have. It might not be right, but that's what happens.
No, they are a distraction from the transaction.
So are purple hair, 3 inch nails, green or black polish.
Would you trust a doctor in pigtails and a poodle skirt?
While such things, alone, does not mean one is not credible, it adds nothing in the way of professional conduct.
It should depend on the nature of the tattoo. If it is obsene then obviously not, but if the tattoo is in an area where it could be covered up or is not to bold and obvious. They look unprofessional and to some show a lack of respect. On the other hand it would depend on the nature of the job that you are working in and the level of professionalism required
John Jackson said it. It depends on the nature of the job!
Would you fancy a doctor or a lawyer with a snake sliding up their arm? But you wouldn't give it a second thought if it's a bar tender in a trendy spot or a rock & roll musician. Whatever, you know the drill.
"Acceptability" for tattoos, or piercings or high heels or mini skirts, depends ENTIRELY on the setting, and the rest is major CRAP
Depends on the workplace. Tattoos express your individuality. Your individuality might not mesh well with my individuality. Therefore, you reduce the number of people willing to do business with you. If it's a workplace that requires you to deal with clients face to face, then I'd see where a dress code requiring tattoos to be covered makes sense. You are the representative for a place of business. If it's a call center, then some level of societal acceptability might still be required as you deal with co-workers on a daily basis, but it might be a little looser.
Short answer, I wouldn't allow them to be visibile during work hours, but I wouldn't NOT hire someone otherwise qualified for having an easily coverable tramp stamp.

Here is an idea I've been pondering lately--it may be a symptom of growing older, now that I'm only about a year and a half from turning 70, and therefore knowing that my life is at least half or more over, given the general longevity statistics for this day and age.I would love to see others' take...
