What are your thoughts on tattoos?


I'm not morally opposed to them, but I remember reading a study on people's perception of women who have them. They're seen as less intelligent, less self-confident, and more promiscuous. Also, some businesses are warming up to them, but many still regard them as unprofessional. Regardless of whether or not that's fair, do you believe getting a tattoo puts your career at risk?

    I agree! To be honest, I'm not interested in getting one, but I wonder what I would do if I was; whether fear of career damage would persuade me not to (or at least to get it in a hidden area).

    I'll admit they're a turn-off for me, but some are definitely more off-putting than others.

    Glad to hear your thoughts! Unfortunately, the study didn't mention men, but from my own life experiences, seems women aren't turned off from their partner having tattoos as often as guys are.
