Dad said the glass was there to stop dawdling. So we learnt to run fast. That helped us catching underground mutton. Its a shame we couldn't light a fire with that fork.

Look petal I am flattered by the attention, but I prefer my on-line shitfights to be with someone who has an IQ above that of a 3 minute egg. Go play with someone your own age.

So back toward the topic, how about tats, piercings, or that characteristic smell of a smoker in your professional resource?  Your doctor, kids teacher, or law enforcement?  does that change your view of their ability to perform the job?

Every choice regarding outward appearance, whether permanent or temporary, sends a message to the rest of the world. Sometimes I realize that my initial impressions are wrong after getting to know the person better. More often than not, they're confirmed.

I try not to dismiss people based on first impressions but if I have questions about their ability to do a job based on a first impression, it takes less evidence to convince me that my initial impression was correct.  If my initial impression is positive, it takes more evidence to convince me that it was incorrect. 

I don't think this is unusual, it's just human nature. If it bothers you, my guess is that you've made some choices that, right or wrong, cause people to question your abilities based on their first impressions of you.

Look beyond the wealthy celebrities, and athletes all tatted up and you'll see what the rest of us see. 

It's tough enough to make it in real life without coming to the plate with two strikes against you.

I know many many tattooed smokers in my little resort town. They work in the bars and eateries. I doubt those are the jobs they'd hoped to have as adults.

Crab, listen, if you can't afford a tat, just don't bring it up. No one here would have noticed without this thread. Just keep it covered until you can save enough to have it covered with a decent tat.

I did see how this would be personal and sensitive to some readers. In the end I decided I didn't care what they thought.

I know quite a few doctors here in Poland and across the river in Germany and I am amazed at how many of them smoke.  Of course as a smoker I really don't care that they smoke.

I don't care if any of the above do any of the other things above either.  There are plenty of professionals that have no tattoos or piercings, and that don't smoke that do plenty of bad things.  Just as an example, Donald Trump doesn't smoke or drink and to my knowledge doesn't have any tattoos or piercings, and look what a dangerous asshole he is.

Since you asked the question, how do you feel about it?

I think a point many of you are missing is tattoos do not bother nor do they cause negative prejudgment by a rapidly growing majority of our country. Very soon, if not already it won’t matter a wit what some of you think.

You should get a Tat to mark this occasion. That is what people do when they feel they have achieved something significant in their lives. Hey - you should take up smoking as well. Meth I mean, not that useless tobacco. Maybe  even start dealing in it. You deserve to have some happiness in your sad little life. We all do. In fact just the thought of you getting pack raped in a prison shower block has already brightened my day. Thank you!

I joke I have 5 tattoos myself.  Dots on my abdomen from radiation therapy for cancer treatment.  Other than that I choose not to participate, but that is me.  As for others, I want to see beyond that at how you actually behave or perform rather than just looking at your appearance.  Unfortunately, you have to be prepared to deal with how you may be pre-judged on appearance only to many people I am afraid.  I think this is where the thread started and was drifting to new areas.

I have one full sleeve tattoo and will be getting my other arm done as well when I can make my mind up finally. I have never noticed any prejudice but maybe judgemental, pretentious, class obsessed motherfuckers just avoid me. 

On a similar but slightly different note, how come the higher up the "class" system people think they are, the less likely they are to be having fun. Think of a royal yacht club event where all the old fuckers are strolling around with their blue blazers on swirling brandy in fancy snifters, and fnar fnar fnaring it up with their buddy's, trying to one up each other with their stories. 

Then look at this bunch. 

i know who is having more fun, and where I'd rather be.

    I was working in my cabinet shop and my belt sander had been getting worse and worse at cutting out because of the inevitable wear on the electric cord where it enters the handle. I finally sat down and took the handle apart and trimmed down the cracked ends of the wires and reconnected things and screwed the split handle back together. I guess I had taken off the motor belt drive cover too to see is I needed to order a new belt but for got that I hadn't put that cover back on when I plugged the cord in and didn't note that the switch was locked in the on position. I had the whole thing laying on my inner thigh and was wearing shorts and the exposed toothed belt and motor and drive cogs spun up to speed when the cord powered up. That took off layers of skin and sort of burned the flesh as well and I had a tattoo/burn scar on my tender thing up high and near my crotch. It healed pretty quick but I guess the iodine I put on it further tattooed the odd looking mark which lasted for months. I was at the 'clothing optional' beach a couple of months later and I noticed a naked girl staring at my crotch and I wasn't sure what was attracting her attention. I was hoping it was my virility that was on display but she finally was bold enough to ask me about the meaning of my tattoo! I stammered a bit as she slid over closer to get a better look and I made up a tale of how it represented the Sun (the final drive pulley) that was in orbit by the Moon (the little cogged wheel on the end of the motor) and how the orbit of the scar left by the toothed belt represented the Tides of the Ocean and my cosmic Destiny along with some other Zodiac bullshit. She seemed to buy the whole story and I told her to watch close for the eclipse of the Sun and the Moon as I stood up!

   There was a whole solar system to admire and that was enough that I got to inspect and inquire about her much more artistic and numerous tats in return...

Are you sure? I mean you can check for meat and potatoes when they turn around, but with surgeon’s skills constantly improving you might need to run DNA. The back to waist to hip ratio suggests female to me,  but hey I am only a nurse what would I know about physical assessment.
