Tattoos and the Job Interview

Aug 26, 2008
Tattoos are an artistic expression of your youth. But now that expression could be hurting your chances to land the dream job you have always wanted.

For most companies maintaining a professional appearance is expected of their employees. One way to maintain a professional appearance is not having exposed tattoos. Most professional companies and many non-professional companies prohibit their employees from having exposed tattoos. Now imagine showing up for an interview with an exposed tattoo at an organization that prohibits their employees from having exposed tattoos. What are your chances of landing this job? Little to none.

When interviewing for any job, employers are looking for candidates that exude professionalism. Most often, in an interview the first impression you will make on an employer is based on your appearance. Your appearance will determine the atmosphere of the interview process. In this critical juncture of the interview process having visible tattoos is very detrimental to your chances of getting the job. Having a visible tattoo during an interview expresses to the employer that you have a lack of professionalism and you do not have appropriate judgment to be hired by their company.

Making a positive impression on an employer during an interview with exposed tattoos is very unlikely. Most people with visible tattoos try to cover them up during the interview process with long sleeves, long skirts, leaving their hair down or even makeup. This method will not work for heavily tattooed individuals with tattoos on their neck, hands, wrist, lower leg or face. Many heavily tattooed people want to pursue a professional career, but believe they can't due to their exposed tattoos. Others will try and pursue a professional career with little success. The only option for heavily tattooed individuals to succeed on a job interview is to have their tattoos removed by a professional.

The professional removal of your exposed tattoos will greatly increase your chances of making a positive impression on an employer during the interview process. Making a positive first impression through a tattoo free, professional appearance and demeanor will greatly increase your chances of being hired. The confidence you will experience from having your tattoos removed will allow you to express your positive attributes and experience in a more confident manner. Without the distraction of your exposed tattoos, the employer will now be able to focus on these positive aspects which you are displaying during the interview and understand the reasons they should hire you for the position.

Many well-qualified but heavily tattooed individuals have faced these exact problems. Our company works with these people to help them overcome these obstacles through our professional tattoo removal services. By working with our professional, qualified staff of tattoo removal specialist many individuals have removed tattoos that have plagued their career aspirations and gone on to achieve their professional career goals. Don't attend another interview with an exposed tattoo. After the removal of your exposed tattoo you can interview with confidence and begin your dream career.
