The reason that many people don’t get a tattoo is because they’re afraid they won’t be able to get their dream job. For the most part, this isn’t really a problem, save for a few positions. Today, Cap1 Tattoos in Denton, Texas is sharing what has changed for tattoos in the workplace.
What Does Modern Research Say?
Here are just a few statistics that show how the stigma of tattoos in the workplace is starting to change.
- Heavily tattooed professionals felt like they were more accessible to younger co-workers.
- 86% of young professionals don’t feel like tattoos reduce their chance of getting a job.
- Grooming and business attire were more important in the hiring process than tattoos or piercings.
However, there are still some negatives because it all depends on the hiring manager’s perception of people with tattoos.
What Does This Mean For Tattooed Professionals?
While there has been a clear shift in the business world towards tattoos, many people still cover up their tattoos when having an interview. Once they have the position, they may choose to still cover them, or begin to show them. Ultimately, it’s at the discretion of the professional.
Jobs where it’s Best to Keep Tattoos Covered
While Cap1 Tattoos thinks you should never be ashamed of your body art, here are a few jobs where it is probably best to keep your tattoos covered.
- Teacher – Many schools won’t hire teachers that have large, visible tattoos because they don’t know how parents or children will react.
- Sales – While this may depend solely on your customer, some older customers may still hold a stigma towards those with tattoos.
- Customer Service – Along the same lines as sales, some older customers may feel uneasy towards those with tattoos.
If you’re in a career where tattoos are still stigmatized, here are some of the best places to get a hidden tattoo.
What You Need to Keep in Mind About Tattoos in the Workplace
Regardless of how accepted tattoos become in the workplace, they will always mark you as different. Your coworkers will ask you what your tattoos mean and your boss may still judge you, but at the end of the day, your tattoos are artwork. Never be ashamed of them and always wear them with pride.
