Good evening, America. I'm John Smith, your host for the "Ideal Employee" show where we show you what it takes to be the best employee!
It's great to be here, John!
Joining us today is Jen Sullivan, sharing her experience with today's topic: tattoos in the workplace.
Well John, for starters, I've actually had a tattoo! It was during a weak moment in my life. I was drunk and got Harry Potter glasses accompanied by a lightning bolt on my knee.
So Jen, what is your opinion on tattoos in the office?
Little did I know that such a small amount of ink could affect my life so much! During a big job interview, it did not cross my mind to cover up my tattoo. As a result, I did not get the job and was discredited. I then spent $400 dollars to get the thing removed. A complete waste of money, John.
Wow! That's what I've heard, Jen, that tattoos cost anywhere from $220-$500 to remove.
Yes, it's expensive. I had to remove it, though. If I hadn't, I would not have gotten the job I have now. In summary, I do not think tattoos are good in any workplace. Never get a visible tattoo if you're wanting to impress every employer in that regard.
Thank you for having me on the show!
You've heard it, folks! Thanks for sharing your experience, Jen!
