@heathuhhhhwebbbb:  I think they might be surprised at first but ultimately they already know you as a hard worker and a good person so it shouldn’t change their perception of you.

 

I work in a law firm also and my boss is not a fan of tattoos, but as long as their covered at work it’s none of her business!  At your wedding it’s your choice to let them show and from the location of some of yours I assume they won’t all be showing.

@heathuhhhhwebbbb:  I agree with PP – if they already like you and know you’re a hard worker, I think they may be initially surprised, but it shouldn’t hurt your career.

 

Congrats on your upcoming wedding by the way!! I want to see recaps lol.

I did not it was proper etiquette to invite your boss to your wedding.  Do you normally hang out with him/her outside of work?

I invited my boss also as a courtesy, but I’m not so much worried about him seeing my tattos as him seeing me have a few drinks! (or seeing him have a few drinks for that matter!) 

We have a good relationship tho, and he knows I’m a hard worker and that my tattoos or a few drinks at my wedding aren’t going to change that,

I bet your bosses will mention it when you return back to work, but oh well!!

@peachacid:  I didn’t know this was the case either. 

But to answer your question @heathuhhhhwebbbb:, no there is nothing to worry about. How you conduct your self at work speaks volumes and your body art should not change any of that. This is your personal event. 

Don’t stress about it! You are almost there! Whoohoo.

@heathuhhhhwebbbb:  One “not-just-one-or-two” tattooed woman to another: *please* let your boss see you as you are. I work in corporate America, and until I had my hands tattooed, not a soul there knew I had any tattoos at all. I dress super conservatively, and my chest/neck/throat were not public knowledge. When my supervisor found out, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that her son actually is a tattoo artist and she really has an appreciation for their work. Never in a million years did I expect that to be her reaction :-p

I wouldn’t worry about it.  I work with the public sometimes, so I would expect my assistant to keep any tattoos covered (though I know she has none).  But if I found out she had a bunch that I never knew about because she was professional enough to keep them covered at the office and keep her personal life out of the office, I’d be happy, not think differently of her. 

Also – I didn’t invite my boss or anyone from work.  🙂  Figured it’d be awkward anywhere I drew the line and no one really wanted to drive 2 hours on a holiday weekend and feel like they had to get a gift, etc.

@heathuhhhhwebbbb:  LOL: we were at a golf tournament this weekend and the owner of my BFs company was there with his family. I was in a sundress so my tattoos were out in the open, and his wife started asking me questions about them. The owner then chimed in to their 15 year old daughter and said, jokingly, “now dont YOU go and do that!”  😉

I work in a law firm and they were surprised, but didn’t care (as long as I continue to cover them haha).
