TATTOOS: The appropriateness of tattoos is often debated by many young professionals. It's not the fact that you have a tattoo, but it's the placement of that tattoo that can adversely affect your career growth. If you desire for your skills and qualifications to be viewed before your body art, avoid getting tattoos in hard-to-conceal places such as hands, neck, wrists, and face. For ladies, it's more difficult to conceal certain body parts, especially extremities. Therefore women in particular should avoid large tattoos on the chest, and lower arms and legs. If you do have these tattoos, you might want to consider wearing clothing that covers them in the work environment or using a quality concealer or cover-up.
