I work in specialty practice with an attached surgery center and we have no rules on exposed tattoos. We have a nurse with a ton of exposed tattoos and it is a non issue. I previously worked for a Pediatricians office, and there could be NO exposed tattoos- they had to be covered with a band-aid.

Its nice to see its more acceptable in the work place!
I work as an Aflac rep, and tattoos should be covered. I am also a life insurance broker, and they don’t have a tattoo policy

I work right now as a Nanny…my boss has no problem with it. I’m switching to a Youth Counselor job in August, and they luckily have no problem with it as well. I like that it’s more acceptable to have them now.

I’m a journalist in a small town with chest and wrist tattoos that I’ve had for so long I’ve forgotten to cover them. I’ve never ever had an issue and in fact people usually complement me.
My boss and I had a funny conversation last week comparing tattoos, as his are way older than mine!

I work in a gym daycare. Tonight was actually my first night! I have a medium sized, colorful tattoo on the inside of my upper arm. No one said anything and I was wearing a short sleeved shirt. I am allowed to wear whatever I want so I doubt it will ever be an issue.

I’m in administration, and no one comments negatively on mine. If they show a little through my clothes, it’s no big deal. I don’t interact with the public much anyway.

I’ve worked as a secretary, a journalist and now I work at a marketing company and no one has ever had a problem with mine. I think the trend now is to not care as much as long as they aren’t horribly offensive.

I’m a nurse, but mine aren’t visible unless I’m wearing something that shows my back, which scrubs do not, so I’m fine there. I have some other coworkers who have visible tattoo’s though and they don’t have to cover them up or anything.

I have tattoos everywhere! My neck,back,arms,stomach and even wrist. Did i mention my neck!
I’m a community developer and it generally feels pretty comfortable to have visible tattoos but honestly, i have had many moments where i have dropped by a cheap clothing shop to pick up a cardigan on my way to a meeting.

I work for now as a bartender, have worked in national conservative politics, personal assistant, insurance firm, and commercial property. The only time someone has had issues with my tatoos was when I worked for one of Ted Turners companies.

I have 8 tattoos but only my anklet can be seen and no one has said anything in the nine years I’ve worked at my office. (I do graphic design/marketing for an a/e company) People are have been really shocked when I say I have 8. I’m not sure what that means, haha

I have a tattoo, just not usually visible (on my shoulder blade).
I work in a children’s hospital. Visible tattoos are allowed as long as they aren’t sexual or scary.
