I have 5 very visible ones and worked in a bank’s corporate office no problem, just kept them covered. I’ve now found Dermablend because of the wedding, so it opens some new possibilities for me.

Oh no! How big are they? Can you wear chunky bracelets?

I would say chunky bracelets or a watch to cover at least one of them up. There is also make up available as well. Dermablend is one of the most reputable.


I have full sleeves and I have no regret. My office accepts them.

My sister uses a make up she got from Sephora to cover hers when she needs to! Its the one that Kat Von D is the spokesperson for.

Not all companies are so conservative. Mine wouldn’t care, but actually it is so cold in the office most days that I wea long sleeves all the time, even in summer.

My office has a ‘dress down’ policy every day so tattoos aren’t an issue. Neither are my dreads, which I thought would have been more of an issue!

I’d definitely recommend using dermablend to cover them up. It would open up a world of cute clothing possibility!

This is why I got my tattoo in a place easily hidden (shoulder blade). Of course I know that 16-year-old you likely wasn’t thinking about 26-year-old you. I didn’t get my tattoo until after college, so I was already in the workforce and had this on my radar.

My workplace allowed visible tattoos as long as they aren’t scary or sexual. (I work at a children’s hospital.)

How about a watch on one wrist and a stack of bangles on your other?

I’m very heavily tattooed and I cover mine by choice when I’m at work.  I don’t work in a conservative office but I prefer not to stand out and many people know about my tattoos. I just wanted to say that I can completely relate to having a difficult time with clothing, especially in the summer!! I’m thinking that linen blouses would be nice.   My office is quite cold, so I can wear cute blouses with a cardigan.
