    This would all depend on where you work. If you worked in a tattoo parlor show as many as you can. If you at a suite and tie job I would recommend showing NONE. All depends on the type of work and what market you are working with.

    It depends on your work.  I would hope people would have enough sense to know what is appropriate at work and not.

    I agree that the type of work being done is important.
    Do I care if my plumber has tattoos? No.
    Would I care if my doctor had tattoos? Maybe.

    Definitely depends on the job. If you never want to ascend to a higher station in life, or you work in a tattoo parlor, let it all hang out. I have never been a fan of piercings, but I have a full tattoo sleeve and several others. I always, always, always, wear long sleeve shirts at work. The truth is that body modification is not as widely accepted as some would like to believe. I still get dirty looks to this day. Since I don't carry around a copy of my resume, this is all many people need to form a first impression.

    If you're wrenching on my motorcycle, I would expect you to have tats. If I'm going to the doctor's office, I should see nice white lab coats and nothing else.

    It entirely depends on the work that you do. In some areas it is definitely a no no. In others it would not matter what tattoos you had or how many.
    I personally have eleven tats, all of which cannot be seen. That was my choice due to my profession at the time.
    You really just have to have common sense.

    It is true that it depends on where you work and the community you are dealing with. Yes, a lot of people still look down on you for having tattoos. But I am a shift supervisor(manager) and pharmacy tech at my job and have two visibly shown tattoos on my wrists. I've never heard anybody make bad comments about them. A lot of customers even ask where I got them done. I think it depends on your personality too. Yes I may have tattoos, but I am still a nice, personable person.
