My cousin has a sleeve and had not problems in the NT but the three office places she went for admin jobs at (no client contact) in SA all demanded she covered it up. She is still looking for one that will accept her

I run a business (health industry) and small visible tattoos wouldn't put me off hiring a good staff member. But if two applicants were equal on all other factors, I'd probably pick the one with no tatts.
I don't think I would hire someone with a full sleeve or anything on their neck. It wouldn't present the image I want my business to convey.

I'd discriminate on tattoos. It doesn't fit with my businesses image.
The overall presentation of the applicant could mean I ignore a nice tattoo...
My husband has a tattoo on his shoulder and upper arm, he has had many positions where he has been unable to wear sleeveless tops because of it.

DH and I have never had any problems with having any of our tattoos and DH has a eyebrow ring and stretched ears as well but a friend of ours was very close to not getting hired as a dental nurse due to have little stars tattooed on her arm and had to agree not to get anymore that would be visible.

I'm glad I'm going to be a makeup artist. I think people are less judgey if you're in the creative industry.
DH has a sleeve and he works in IT as a manager. One of the general managers has two sleeves as well.

I work in real estate and I've worked with people who have tattoos on their wrist. It doesn't seem to have been a problem.
Actually a few of my colleagues have lots of tattoos, but mostly in easy to hide places

Sadly we don't get to see this every day as he wears shirts to work, LOL.
I'm thinking of getting tattoos too

One of my friends has a quote on her wrist, on the top side. She worked in an accounting office and they requested she cover it, a thick bangle worked. They didn't care about tattoos as such, just preferred then to not be 'in your face'.
I have a small tattoo on my back (yeah, it's a tramp stamp stupid 17 year old dancingchipmunk) so it's never been an issue for me as that part of my body isn't on display.
