My local news just had a story about someone who is suing a company which he was clearly qualified for, and they didn't hire him because when they saw his tattoos, the people interviewing him tried to get through the interview as fast as they could compared to other applicants and stared at his tattoos most of the time.

Depends on the job.

Say you apply for a retail job at a religious store and you are a metalhead with metal tattoos.

In many jobs presentation is key.

"Tattoo-having" isn't a protected class. Get with the ACLU and change it.

It depends on the job and where is the tattoo.

My friend is an accountant and his entire Torso is covered in one large dragon tattoo. Nothing is visible while in the suit.
Due to recent economic conditions, and the rising cost of Electricity, Gas and Oil, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.

If you have a Dragon Tattoo and you wear a suit...

ANYWAY, what if the guy has swastika tattoos and hes applying for a job at the ADL?

what are his tattoos about? where are his tattoos? can he cover them with proper attire?

if he is like this,

of course they don't want to hire him when he's promoting other companies over theirs.

This. After all, tattoos aren't choices.

wait.

But in all seriousness, I'm all for ink being acceptable in the workplace, but like so many things, there are exceptions. If someone had a giant swastika tattooed on his face, I can totally understand employers not begging him to join the team.

Obviously its discrimination but that doesn't mean that its always wrong or even close to illegal.
