 Inking a Tattoo can Reduce Chances of Landing a Job

While inking a tattoo may seem to be fashionable, a new study reveals that it can cost you a chance of landing a new job.

For his study, Dr. Andrew Timming from University of St. Andrews in Scotland, interviewed 15 managers who were involved in the hiring process at different organizations, including a bank, hotel, prison, university and bookstore.

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.
