Tattoos are so common at this point that I feel like the odd man out for not having one. I just can't imagine any image on earth that I like so much that I'll literally never be able to get rid of it.

My husband says this all the time! If you find one to invest in don’t keep it to yourself. Lol. I don’t mind tattoos but I feel like they have gone from small things to huge whole sleeves or whole legs. So many women in my yoga classes have half their bodies done, and make sure whatever they wear showcases the body art. 

Some tats are so well done, they're works of art, others (prison tats, beginner artist tats, mistakes) not so much.

I don't think tats make anyone a different person.  I don't understand not hiring people because they have visible tattoos, especially nowadays.

To each his own, I say.

Way back in College the Forum/Special Blend guys came to Penn State. We went into 100 Thomas which is a 300+ seat lecture hall with a movie sized screen, watched their latest video, drank a ton of redbull that was being passed out and then there was a huge after party back at the Snowboard Club house. Travis Kennedy sure as hell could drink. I feel super old now. 

scranton's own Eddie Wall has some legendary stories about Travis Kennedy's partying.  unfortunately he's spent the past 8 years in and out of state prison while eddie wall is an editor for transworld i believe

Wow he needs an otter box. The one drunk chick regular at the local bar lost her IPhone X recently and it ended up being in the ladies room at the bar sitting on top of the paper towel holder lol

It depends on the position and the tattoos. I wouldn’t want my office manager to have like a neck tattoo or full sleeve or nose ring but her tats are are tiny and not exposed.

I agree to an extent.  I don't see a problem with full sleeves, unless of course you've got some type of XXX porn or something like that going on.  They're just tattoos.
Facial tattoos are another fine line, depending on what the tattoo is.  If you're gonna emblazon a swastika on your forehead or something stupid like that, well...

Jewelry, piercings, gauges, subdermal implants, etc. all can be taken to the extreme as well, but still people need to calm down when they see someone with radical body art.

I know a younger girl who couldn’t get hired for office jobs because of facial tattoos. The only place that would hire her is Spencer’s gifts in the mall.  I told her take out facial piercings when going for interviews and she said no,”it’s her self expression and a part of her” well then she can stay poor.  

 

If a guy has has long hair and a big beard it’s probably harder to get hired for professional work vs somebody who’s clean cut.  Same with a big fat ugly woman vs an attractive woman.  It’s just the way of the world. Appearances matter. It’s why people like Toast who hate fat people will always gravitate towards guys like Atomic Jeff who look like a bag of skittles with AIDS lol

My point exactly.  Unfortunately It's a very superficial world we live in where appearance matters more than substance.

I'm sure Toast doesn't hate fat people and I have no knowledge of his gravitational preferences nor Atomic Jeff's candy preferences.

Would you hire her to be your office manager, if she was sufficiently qualified?

Dayyyyuuuuuum I haven't seen this picture in years! Sh*t I had this as my desktop image for a few years.

That being said I don't feel bad for this guys at all. Get paid to travel the world and do what they love but they throw it all away. F*ck them.

Nope even though I could probably get her for $10 an hour less.  I need a nerd working in my office. They’re good at Maths.
