I have a tat...it's on my left shoulder blade...got it when I was 19, stupid and in the USAF. It was a Friday night in Biloxi...I just got paid, and I wanted something to commemorate my service in the USAF. I got a little bald eagle in a dive with it's talons out like it's about to snatch up some prey with USAF underneath it. I don't regret it. $55 wasn't too much money wasted. Generally, I call folks that are all tatted up and/or have a bunch of facial piercings "Minimum Wage". Yes, it's their choice to get all inked up....it's awesome. But, they need to know they also quite possibility make themselves less than desired candidates for many well paying Customer Facing careers. You cannot bitch about how your career is limited when you do things that limit your desirability as a candidate. When you're at work, you don't represent yourself and your choices...you represent whomever is paying you to be there. You cannot look like a clown unless you work for the circus, and Ringling Brothers was shut down by the bleeding heart elephant lovers.
