He found that most of them agreed that there is a stigma attached to tattoos that can be seen, the New York Daily News reported.

Timming also heard that tattoos are the first things that recruiters talk about, amongst themselves, after a potential candidate leaves the room.

He said that the study participants also expressed concern the customers may project a negative service experience based on stereotypes that tattooed people are thugs and druggies.
