Tattoos at Work – level 2

Tattoos at Work – level 2

A third of young people in Britain have a tattoo, but some businesses are worried about the image the tattoo would give to customers or clients. A conciliation service says that the negative attitude about tattoos is outdated. The service also warned businesses that they could be missing out on good employees.

In October 2014, people sent home a trainee teacher from England on her first day at a Catholic school because of her tattoos.
