Do the old adages still hold?
There was an article in the paper a bit ago about a girl who applied for a job at Dorney Park, the big amusement park in our area. She had the job nailed until she was asked if she had a tattoo. She has a small one on her neck and even though she wears her hair long, she was denied the position.
Years ago tattoos were a mark of sleaze or something you would see in a freak show. People were considered low class if they sported tattoos. That’s not so today. We went to a wedding in Des Moines, Iowa a few years back…conservative Des Moines. Each of the bridesmaids had visible tattoos as well as the bride. They are good people who like tasteful ink. Three of my children have inked themselves. I don’t understand it particularly, but what’s the big deal? Why would a bit of ink keep a person from a job? Hey, maybe one of my kids could tattoo a fireplace on an arm with my URL: www.qualityfireplacescreens.com.
