For those of you who have neck, throat, face and/or hand tattoos, I have a few questions. Have you totally given up on life? Are you aware that no one will ever take you seriously nor will you have a respectable job?

Tattoo artists are the only exception. They can pull it off. It's their art and life.

And go......

So you say.
And times are changing. Not hardly the way you think public opinion is leaning. In fact, I think you may be a decade late.
You know how Bikers had a bad rap in the 60`s and 70`s? And then in the 90`s every dentist, lawyer, and "respectable" person were weekenders changing the image? Even grandpa and grandma have bikes with thier Harley Teeshirts.

So was tats. It wasn`t a tabboo or social stigma a decade ago. Infact we were even acclimated to body mods.
Now 2013... it`s rather sad. You can be a respectable business owner with neck and hand tats, in the same way you can be a respectable business owner while jamming to Smashmouth in your Iroc on your way to work.
Have fun in your time capsule from the year 2000 and suck.

I think they are saying that as competitive as jobs are, you don't want anything negative to impact your presentation. I don't know what kind of business you have. But I would bet you are not a stock broker or other white collar job.

Tats are just another sign of how people are regressing back to ancient times. Our culture is moving backward instead of forward. Everyone likes the tribal pagan symbols on their bodies. We are moving toward a Godless post industrial wasteland of brutality, disease and poverty.

To each their own but I have to say when I see someone with hand and neck tattoos I think how trashy they look. I wonder if they have children and how they feel about it. I have 6 tattoos and I can cover them all so I can look professional or classy at a special event.

Not saying you are trash, but you have backed up my point. You are in business where visible tats are accepted by your clients. If something happens that your business is no longer viable.(Lots can happen) and you look for a job in a bank. You will be turned down. My point is.... Neck and hand tattoo will eliminate you from certain jobs. If it is important enough to take that chance, then do it.
Exactly

Yeah, my world view is somehow less broad because you have spider webs or bone collector tats on your neck??? You`re an idiot. And no one said you couldn`t father children with ink... stupid. And of course you work 40 hrs a week, so does half the people with a porale officer.
I`m sure you`re all Vin Deisle with your triple X tats or perhaps you have street cred with Yakuza for those coy fish.
The point is I know you`re an adult and it`s your body. If you want to wear panties and a dress with a dildo glued to your head be my guest, but don`t act like you`re enlightened or immune from the reality of perception.

You're terrific. You didn't know that tattoos= open minded. What a moron. I guess I'm closed minded and square because I don't have any visible ink. When I see those stupid tattoos I just think that person is a jackass and doesn't care if they ever have a respectable job. Pretty much just given up.

U people are idiots!!..your perception of the world is warped and dated.I'm not saying I'm enlightened but I don't judge people I don't know by their appearance.if its our body's and you don't care why come on a public forum and bitch about it.and as far as not having a respectable job is concerned I think that any one with any job is deserving of respect.i can't stand people who think they are some how better than someone else because of the contents in their wallet.we are all people in a crazy world trying to make it.be it at McDonald's or president of a million dollar company.we are people!!i also find it funny that you think tattoos automatically makes you a convict.ihave never been arrested nor had a ticket.i don't drink nor do I engage in drugs or any other illegal activity.i have tattoos and I like them my wife,mother,kids and family like them as well.thats good enough for me!

Give me a break. You don't judge people? EVERYONE JUDGES OTHERS! It's human. I'm judging you for saying you don't judge people. And for all of your tattoos of course.

You make it sound like I judge people for being poor or the kind of shirt they wear. Sitting in a tat parlor picking flash off the wall for a perm tat on your neck or face of a money sign or some shit isn`t the same as wearing socks with holes in them.

I judge people by their intended delibrate actions.

And I never said having tats automatically means you`ve been to prison. I`m actually saying the reverse, being in prison usually means you`re coming out with shitty prison tats. Just like having a tramp stamp doesn`t make you a tramp, but you`d be hard pressed to find a skank tramp who doesn`t have a tramp stamp.

Follow the logic. Criminals/shit birds aren`t immitating you, you are immitating shit bird criminals.
