Wanting a dragon to cover his calf does not impact whether or not a person knows and can apply laws justly or fairly. It's just such a disingenuous argument.
    It does potentially impact that person's reception by customers, clients, etc. Rightly or wrongly, how many people do you think will want to get a mortgage from this guy?

    If you have an advertising agency, do you really feel good about sending this guy in to do your initial meet-and-greet with a Fortune 500 company?

    First impressions matter. They may not be everything but they do matter.

    Re: Friday OT #2 - Tattoos

    Here's the thing about tattoos in the workplace. Even if there is no explicit policy against visible tattoos it can still affect you. The interviewer or manager may dislike them personally and judge you not by your work but what he thinks of people with tattoos. They might not even be doing it consciously. They might not hate tattoos at all but when they form a first impression of you vs. someone else without visible tattoos they may just get the feeling that the other person might be more conservative and a safer bet.

    I've had plenty of lady-friends with a tat or 2 on different parts of the body that were quite nice.

    Some are obviously for attention, but it's definitely not fair to group them all together.

    Can we get a complete listing of CFers with tribal and/or barbed wire bands around their biceps?

I'm getting really close to final design, though, so now it's more of a finances issue.
    Sounds cool. You should post it on here so someone can rip it off and get it tattooed before you do.

    I agree with you. Some are personal reminders to some people. I didn't mean to imply all people do it for attention, but some definitely do.

    If tattoos have meaning, I respect that. But I have a friend who got her first one two years ago, saying she came up with the tattoo idea herself, it's on her back, and it was a feather that was symbolizing that she is flying free or is independent or something stupid like that. And then a couple months ago she got some latin saying that says she is free and independent or something stupid like that in which she found on pinterest. And then last weekend at a wedding I met a lady that was the same age as her with the same feather tattoo on her arm, so now I know there is no way she came up with the tattoo on her own.

    So the following is my issues with tattoos that I'll never understand, because as I said, for me it's cool if they have meaning but there's no other reason for them.

    1. Why get 2 tattoos with the same meaning like my friend did?

    2. Do you really need tattoos to tell you something about yourself, like your independent, or strong, or do you get them for everyone else to know that you are independent or strong?

    3. Why do you get tattoos on your backside? If it has meaning on your back, you'll only see it when you are staring at yourself in the mirror.

    4. The inner ear. I have another friend that has the word "love" written in her inside flap of her ear and the only way you can see it is if you get up close to it. She can't make out what it says in a mirror. So why spend the money if you can't even see/read the tattoo?
    Regarding #2, I guess I don't see much difference between a tattoo, and clothing, online avatar or something. It's just a way to express yourself. Some people care more and put more effort into it than others.

    Re: Friday OT #2 - Tattoos

    I don't have any - I know that whatever I would get today, I would hate 5 years from now, so that's why I probably won't ever get one.

    My wife on the other hand has 3/4 of her left arm covered (she just told me what her plans are for the full-sleeve), another one on the inside of her right fore-arm, and another on the back of her neck. All of them can be covered with long-sleeves/collared shirts. She previously worked as a credit underwriter for 7 years and never had any complaints about not covering her tattoos at that office. She most recently works at the front-desk of our church and I don't know of anyone that has complained about it - I think the pastor feels like she gives the congregation "street cred" as she is also lead vocals at our contemporary worship service.

    I never thought I would be into someone with tattoos, but she really pulls them off well. Most of her tattoos were pre-planned over months and she interviewed different artists before approving the final design.

    We've both talked about what those tattoos would look like when she's older. In fact, she was just mentioning to her friends last night that she doubts she'll be the only old lady in the nursing home with "saggy tats" - at least I thought I heard that right...
