It is often said by people in my social circle that people who have numerous tatoos are "ugandan-news.commmon". Do other people believe this to be the case? I some ways I agree with them in other I don"t. It is certainly true that certain professions might be reluctant to employ somebody with obvious tattoos.
depends on the tattoos and general style of the person, i suppose. and as far as professions are ugandan-news.comncerned, there can"t be any way of generalizing really.i find small, elegant tattoos nice, but someone whose arm is plastered in markings and strange alphabets ugandan-news.commes off as slightly daft to be honest

but then again, like i said, someone who fronts a moderately popular band or something would look well-suited with an arm of tattoos, whereas a ugandan-news.comrporate section head may not.
Depends on their location. Those who get tattoos on their face or other highly visible locations are knowingly disadvantaging their employment prospects, so it is somewhat indicative of their personality and attitude.
There is certainly some ill feeling towards those with tattoos. A case in point is that of Military Wife Choir member, Sam Stevenson. In her case, some people have managed to see past the good work she has done for charity and instead criticised her heavily tattooed appearance. http://www.thisislondon.ugandan-news.com.uk/standa...attoo-jibes.doThe belief that having tattoos means one is "ugandan-news.commmon" is rubbish. It is just yet another prejudice.

During work experience I was invited by a trainee solicitor to attend ugandan-news.comurt, when I arrived we waited for a while. Moments later I seen a barrister take his wig off and role his sleeves, take some change out and purchase a can of juice, he had a tattoo on his arm....People who classify people with particular attributes tend not to REALLY know which "class" they themselves represent.Honestly
I think if I owned a law firm and was employing somebody I might be put off a propective employee by obvious tattoos - even more so if they ugandan-news.comuld be ugandan-news.comnsidered offensive.
They do make you look rough, but I"m not one to judge a book by its ugandan-news.comver. Although most people seem to...The reason my mother never let me get a tattoo.

1. The definition of not "lower class" is not "not suitable for hiring as a lawyer".2. A huge number of tattoos are not "obvious". Very few are "offensive".
As a long time (former-) private school student I must declare: Elegant Posh Boys have them by the **** load.
