    Default Spin off - Childcare worker with tatts

    Inspired by the nurse with tatts thread.. WDYT of childcare workers with tatts?

    I am studying CC and have several tatts, I have both wrists done (butterfly on one and my DD's name on the other) as well as japanese writing on my inner arm from my elbow to my wrist (left and right.. family, strength, love, happiness and loyalty).. they're the only ones that are ever visible in a t-shirt.

    Of course I'm aware I'll probably need to wear a shirt with long sleeves all year.. I made the choice to get my tatts irregardless of any professional goals as they are important to me and what I stand for. My question is what would you think? Would it bother you, would you be happy for me to look after your kids or not?

    I have no piercings except ears & no crazy hair style/colour. The only thing "different" about me is my tatts

    Our director has lots of tattoos and it doesn't phase me in the slightest I wouldn't think twice about carers having tattoos or piercings

    One of DS's favorite carers at daycare was working on full sleeves. It never bothered me or DF, but then we both have a few & FIL has close to full sleeves and a huge back tatt. Most of our friends have them as well and we don't see any difference between having a friend with tatts babysit & one of his carers having tatts.

    Wouldn't bother me if someone caring for my kids had tattoos, all that matters is that they love their job and do a good job

    If it was a sleeve of skulls or naked ladies or offensive images or something then yeah I'd mind. And yeah I guess I'd probably have an internal response to someone covered in tatts - or piecings for that matter - but I'd not make a judgement on those things. But it might make me pause.

    But a butterfly, Asian symbol and name - I probably wouldn't notice or care.

    I never cared. I am biased though as I love tattoos and work in child care. I never cared what the carer looked like prior to working in the industry to me it was about how they cared and interacted with my children.

    I plan on getting offensive ones(not really offensive IMO but can be) that will be visible out of uniform or during cleaning if shirt lifts. I like the design and would never show at work.

    I couldn't care less what people do to their own skin. As long as they aren't offensive then I'm unfazed. Tatts are so main****** now that I imagine someone in every industry is inked. Yawn.
