Is it possible a writer at the New York Times read my last post and followed-up with an article on the same topic? Not a chance in hell — merely a case of delightful happenstance that I’m going to shamelessly build on here.
The article in question, a great piece about people who cover up their tattoos at work for fear of career rejection, reveals the fact that most of us need to keep our work and personal life separate.
Here’s my challenge. Post a picture of your tattoo in the comment section and my team of savvy advertising students will determine if your tattoo will impact your chance of employment or promotion. The rules are simple – we will only consider tattoos that test the borders of professional attire. That would include the snake
sneaking out from the collar of your shirt or the gothic cross carved across your hand. All other markings should remain a mystery. I repeat – do not send us anything that is not obviously visible to a potential employer. If you are confused, see the NY Times article below.
