Are tattoos still taboo in the workplace?
Despite often being beautiful works of art, tattoos have historically been frowned upon in the workplace. The military, legal professions and education often implement strict bans on visible tattoos.
In recent years, however, more and more industries are beginning to reconsider their policies.
In 2018, London Metropolitan Police partially relaxed a ban on recruiting candidates with body art, revealing that it was now being evaluated on a ‘case-by-case’ basis. Similarly, in 2019, Air New Zealand also dropped their ban.
Are tattoos acceptable in the workplace?
Some workplaces allow tattoos but not if they are visible when you’re in uniform, while some roles permit tattoos but only up to a certain percentage of body coverage. And some are simply accepting.
This workplace conversation on tattoos is constantly evolving, but at NAAMA we understand the importance of being able to live exactly as you choose. For that reason, we champion the freedom of being able to express yourself through body art alongside the decision to safely remove or fade your ink.
Our low-energy laser significantly reduces any chance of blistering, scarring or lasting damage, which means less downtime between treatments and fast tattoo removal results.
If you want to land your dream career and that doesn’t allow for tattoos, we see no reason why an old piece of body art should stop you - this freedom to make your own decisions is essentially part of our mission.
While we would never want to coerce an individual into having their body art removed, we can help those who have decided they would be better off without their tattoos.
