I have trouble understanding why anyone would deface their bodies and I think it is usually a sign of people with lower standards and or class. I don't even care if there are exceptions. And they are not going to be employed in any of my companies because I don't want others to think that's what my organizations are about.

That is generally the same for long hair and for men who wear their baseball hats inside. And for men who wear their baseball hats turned around. And for men who wear earrings.

JasonStorm? Did you notice the tattoos on that crazy biatch trying to crash the line at the Casey Anthony trial? I rest my case.

I,m not from Harvard or in anyway posh and would never dream of having a tattoo. I,ve never seen one on anyone that stands out and looks really good and think they look especially bad on females

Maybe but that still is not going to change my mind about low class people with tattoos.
Can you explain to me why your "high class society" is better than anyone else? Do you genuinely believe that because you employ 180-185 people and have some form of wealth that you are better than anyone else in this world? It is people like you that make me sick. I know you will probably have something to say about my grammar and punctuation and sentence structure but this is the Internet another form of self expression just like tattoos, piercings, or anything else that you my good sir (this is what is called treating people like equals like they should be) might use to express yourself. And I'm glad that you think my society is lower than yours because we express ourselves differently than yours or because your society has more money than ours because we work hard every day for the things we receieve and we enjoy and appreciate everything we have more because of that simple fact that we don't sit in our cozy offices and collect money and blindly judge people everyday. Us people from the vocational and technical schools that learned a specific trade and enjoy ourselves every day at work because ofthe appreciation that we don't have everything given to us we have to stand up for ourselves and make something of ourselves that is what being an individual is about and if you blindly want to judge us because of our tattoos or piercings that is text book racism because of the color or colors of our skin you would not hire someone? Hmm think about that one next time you want to blindly judge someone whom you think you are better than simply based on appearance.

Anyone who even gets a tattoo is a freaking moron. It does wonders for future job prospects. To me the first thing that comes to mind is either a criminal or cheap tramp. 693

I employ from 180-185 people in my businesses. They all know to a person if they get a tattoo it's Bye Bye. They are out the door with their individual expression with them.
Well now that would be Discrimination.... and then you would have a lawsuit , my guess is your just lucky you dont have a smart tattooed employee
