Tattoos in the Workplace! #The_Tattoo_Project by @KingDevil with @OtinFlewer


As the hour approaches twilight,
a consonant mind coruscating towards a T-Point,
Strolls through the day unwinding
Into the haven of good times amongst friends 
Crackles of unintended pun
And few dashes of wryly smiles illustrate a random thought of insinuations
As individuals stop to gather momentum
And finish the business of what’s ahead. 
Amidst theatrics, dusk fades into an oblivious darkness
And bestowed by the shadows around
As OtinFlewer enters T-Point
The Evenings begin!

The story goes on with an acquiescence that I have to scratch my way through the challenges that pose throughout the events of desires ravine; desires to be a “tatted man” like my man – @OtinFlewer. Tatted good, tatted desires fill! The undying thirst unquenched by an unfinished quest of a rockstar experience that could not be lived “yet” and sanctities of belief that tattoos have inspired throughout the pages of history.


Having a tattoo is like “I’m sure of everything I am”. From prince to princesses to priests & prisoners, tattoos have dwell on all. In fact it arguably is one of the oldest forms of art in documented history. Remnants of tattoo into an art form have evolved over the sweep of civilizations dating back to early tribal aborigines when scars in humans epitomized The Chieftain cult.

Tattoos are distinguishing marks that are often related in weight of their acceptance or rejection of values in traditional Western or Japanese culture while modern conceptions are identical to traditional Tahitian tattoos because of their prominence in reflecting expressions of physical and social interactions within the cross sections of a society.

Elizabeth M Rapp in her Senior Thesis "Stigmatization or Decoration: Tattoo as Deviance, A Cross Cultural Study" brings to light the Iceman mummy discovery in 1991 concluding affirmations to the practice of tattooing in the “iceman” age and describing it as the art of placing ink under the skin to leave a permanent mark.

History is evident of a range of tools found by archaeologists that were used for tattooing, excavations of tattooed mummies from different regions of the world and tattoo like marks found on statues to confirm that tattoos dates back to varying time periods including the likes of ancient Greeks and Romans.

Tattoos started with a scar. The Chieftain cult! Tweet This!

According to an archaeological discovery in an ancient cave in Spain, history of tattoos can be traced back to over 40,000 years when people used bone needles to scrape colour patterns in the skin. Centuries of evolutions later, today tattoo artists use small electric machines with sterilized needles to engrave tattoos and give you crafty body art forms for varying state of expressions.

Back at Tea-Point having said all this, notion of the hour is about inhibition of a myth that the impression of Tattoos in the workplace can sometimes be attitude unprofessionally. Google this phrase and the answer will surprise that there is a notion about tattoos being deemed as an unintended slur that may implicate your professional stride further implicating scenarios for job seekers having to hide tattoos from the neck up.

Meaning of tattoos & their desired expressions or bold style statement may vary from person to person. Two people having similar tattoos may not necessarily intend the same meaning. For some it’s a memoir for someone significant in their life while some may intend tattoos as a reminder of a struggled past or where they came from, where they are and where they are heading! Many mark a tattoo as a sense of belief

Are #Tattoos Still a Taboo// Story of a tatted man! 
Socially visible tattoo marks often draws negative attention, stereotyped and can even extend invitation for discrimination. Society eyes them as unequal, delinquents, gang hood, and so on. In fact many MNCs & organizations may not hire in case you are sporting a visible tattoo mark in your body.

How does the physical act of tattooing reflect individual adaptation to cultural beauty standards? People in cultures all around the world “judge a book by its cover,” and bodies, existing as they do in society, are one of the ways in which people classify those around them.

Regardless of its origin, the primary focus of modern tattoos is self-expression. Once seen as taboo in Western cultures, the stereotypes associated with tattoos are slowly being disbanded and now accepted. In the United States, Japan & Tahiti, Tattoos are said to be in a “renaissance period” and gaining wide spread popularity although at one point of history Western cultures deemed them as taboo.
If anything, tattoos are a modern adaptation of self-expression & the physical act of tattooing is a symbolism to freedom.

Tattoo issues for employers depend largely on what kind & where the tattoo is sported by employees and certainly the law tends to support employer dress code/appearance policies. Moreover employers branding image must be regulated with consistency by retaining flexibility in creating rules for their policies.

Consider it this way, a concierge of a four-star hotel with large tattoos ok skulls & crossbones on the back of each hand will implicate scenarios that might concern the management compared to a dishwasher from the same hotel with the same tattoos due to lesser direct contact with the hotel’s customers.

A survey conducted by Pew Research Centre on the perception & implication of tattoos in the workplace offers the following interesting statistics:
