learntodrownbeforeyoulearntoswim asked: I just got my first "big girl" fulltime job, and I have a full sleeve. I had worn long sleeves all throughout the interview process and only after being accepted did I ask about a policy. they said that visible tattoos are okay as long as they are not offensive... which is understandable. I was even told that one of the managers has two full sleeves and they (the company) are totally cool with it. :) it is very unfortunate that we have to hide who we are to get a job without being judged. meh.

Done after I lost my farther. Something I needed to give me strength to get through. My dad would have loved this warrior angel.

meaning behind my tattoo:

The native American symbolism on bats means “ability to see through illusion, extremely aware, and will never accept half-hearted or lukewarm attempts at self-improvement”

At the time I got the tattoo I was going through a phase in my life. I decided I wasn’t happy with how I looked. So I changed, for the better. I lost weight, dressed better, and started to become more of the person I wanted to become. Also I was in a bad relationship, dealing with verbal and some physical abuse, always being lied to and cheated on. So I left.

nerd-puncher-deactivated2013110 asked: As someone with many tattoos, I can attest to the fact that you should keep them covered, and ask what the policy is as soon as possible. It also depends on the industry, but it's still best to cover them.

the-kid784 asked: I would go in with a long sleeve shirt to cover up the tattoo then ask what their policy is regarding visible tattoos. More 9-5 jobs are becoming accepting of visible tattoos however not all so its better to be safe then sorry.

theseasonstrees asked: I'm a girl with a fairly large (not at all offensive) forearm tattoo and I'm about to go into the job market. I was wondering if any ladies out there have any advice for job hunting with ink. I knew full well when I got my tattoo the likelihood that 9-5 life with a tattoo may mean super strength cover-up or long sleeves year 'round, but that's not exactly ideal. Do I cover up for the interview? Show my ink off? Ask about their tattoo policy? Help!
