I've got tattoos on my wrist, one behind my ear and one down my back. Before DD I used to work in a creative industry and I never had a problem. However I managed a large business in a suburb that was very wealthy and was asked to take a stud I had in my nose out.
DH has a full sleeve and manages a marketing team, he wears suits anyway, but will never go into work with them exposed as he thinks they're unprofessional in his sort of work environment.
On another note, a girlfriend of mine is a tattoo artist so is covered, and she often says that she feels discriminated against, obviously not in her work, but just generally at the pool with her DD, on public transport, the shops etc.
The only tattoos I'd consider inappropriate in a professional workplace would be those you can't cover up, so hands/fingers and neck.

I would say it depends on your industry, your chosen place of employment and their policies and also the tattoo placement and content.
A friend has had a bit of trouble getting a job in her chosen field thanks to a rather large neck tattoo.

I think it's workplace dependent, I've worked at four law firms, two were very strict no piercings other than ear lobes and all tattoos must be covered, the other two didn't care.
I would just check what their policies are and go from there

I have three tattoos. Never had a problem. I was interviewed by a HR rep in a public service office who was bald with tattoos all over his head and two massive stretchers in his ears! So since then I figure if they discriminate against me for my tattoos I will go to the union. I've never had a problem so far

I have one on my wrist, I work in admin in the construction industry, I've never had a problem. In fact most people have never even noticed it, I wear a watch to work though so I guess it's not heaps obvious tatts are so addictive!!

Depends on the area and industry I would guess. Jaspers preschool there are a couple of teachers with visible tattoos, and the other day jasper told me one of the teachers has a tongue piercing.
But it seems to be a non-issue on the gold coast, everyone seems to have tattoos.
