    Yep, my company says no visible tats and are very strict on piercings and other jewellery.

    If my kids get tattoos I'll be disappointed, but it's not the end of the world and I'll certainly not hold it against them.

    I don't see it as being any different from people not wanting their kids to watch music videos with scantily clad people gyrating.
    By the time your kids are old enough to get tattoos they won't be kids anymore. And if you would be openly disappointed in them just because of the way they look that's a bit mean. What would you do if your kids told you they were gay?

    I don't have a tattoo myself, and I used to hate them. But they don't bother me these days. I actually off the top of my head cannot think of someone I know that doesn't have one (except my mum and dh lol)... I have never noticed if any of the carers in my kids daycare have any tattoos, if they did I wouldn't care. I have a friend who is 68 and just got her first tattoo down her leg, she is awesome lol

    My parents have been disappointed in a few lifestyle choices I've made. As an adult I know all that means is they wish I'd chosen to do something else & it makes no difference to my relationship with them. Besides being gay is not a choice, getting a tattoo is.

    Back when I was in afterschool care, so like - 25 years ago. One of the workers (who I loved) was a tattooed, pink spikey hair and openly gay lady. She was great. So I wouldn't even think twice about it.

    Agreed. I have one that I wish I could've erased but it was way cheaper to get it redone with something else.

    But back to the topic - childcare workers can be awesome whether they have tattoos or not. It'd be a real shame if your child missed out meeting some awesome people just because of a few tattoos

    I would never get a tattoo, it is not something I want on myself, I don't particularly love them. Having said that, I know some lovely people who have tattoos. It seems a shame that you would judge someone on their tattoos rather than the person they are inside.

    We have a very 'that's what they do and this is what we do' parenting method, so other people having tattoos isn't an issue, but for someone to be that closely involved with my kids it would blur those lines I believe.

    I think some inked up peoples bodies are works of art, generally though I really don't like tattoos.

    I'm quite confused that you don't see it as different to chidlren watching soft porn? Someone with a tattoo is automatically a bad influence on your child? really? Also likening it to drugs and drinking is a bit sad IMO You don't want your kids to 'look up to' someone who has a tattoo? Whyyyyy? What are people that have tattoos like......?

    I'm covered in them myself and love them I wouldn't see a problem with a childcare worker having them as long as they weren't offensive.

    My former employer pretty much had a cow just about my eyebrow piercing I always wore full sleeves to cover my arm tatts though.
