For all you tattoo bashers out there.
Tattoos don’t make the character. Learn people. Learn.
The previous generations really did a number on us when it comes to tattoos. They made us believe that tattoos are unprofessional and unsightly, when, really, tattoos and body art have existed through pretty much the entirety of human history. Tattoos, unless they are of an offensive nature, are not any more unprofessional than make-up, or jewelry, etc.
I remember one time I was asked by a friend who is a manager if she should hire a guy with tattoos. My first question to her was about how qualified the guy was for the position, and she explained he was very qualified.
Her: “If you went to a store to buy something, would it bother you if the person helping you had tattoos?”
Me: “As long as he does his job properly and helps me when I need it, he could be wearing a Halloween costume for all I care.”

Now if only there were a post about hair colors like pink and green and purple. Because it’s the same damn thing. I get more people smiling and complementing me with neon hair as a sales person than thos who shame me. Yet it’s hard to get hired with the hair in the first place.
This is me. I’m not very fond of my looks but I still keep going. I have no hair. I have alopecia, I don’t get facial hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, hair. It’s been a living hell growing up with this. Everyday I come home and cry. People tell me I’m worthless, my life has no meaning. I’m a waste of skin. Everyday. I keep fighting and fighting. I don’t have perfect eyes. I don’t have perfect thighs. I have flaws. You all do too. You don’t have to bring out mine just because they are more noticeable. If you took the time to read this, you care. I love you.
