my husband when he was young, just for kicks he placed a huge tatoo over his left arm. right now he is looking for work in good companies, no one would accept him because of his tatoo. here in our country its very expensive removing a tatoo. removal of his tatoo would mean a 100usd. so i need to have at a 100usd here in myLot so i can help him remove his tatoo. do you have a tatoo? do you feel sorry for having it? pls do advise.thanks!

Hey, not only having a tattoo keeps your husband from getting a decent work but it will also keeps him from donating blood in the future if emergency exists in your family. Yes, they could say it's an art or something but still, what's the real purpose of it? Although it is really nice to see on somebody, but still... And having to remove it will cause you a lot of bucks which you could definitely use to support your family instead. Well... but still there must be somewhere out there that will hire your husband regardless of how he looks like with or without a tattoo as long as he meets the skills that they're looking for. Guess we have to pray harder for that... cheers. c",)

Maybe I am stupid, but how do they know he has a tattoo. Can't he wear long sleeve shirts?

I have three tattoos and I don't want to get rid of any of them. I have no regrets about getting any of my tattoos. Considering how much tattoos cost, I don't think that $100 is all that much to have one removed.

This is exactly why you should really think about it before you get a tatoo. My husband also has one that he got when he was younger and now he hates it. his is not a prominent and can be covered up, as it is on the back of his shoulder. When I was younger and thinking about getting a tatoo I really thought about placement. I wanted to be able to see it and show it off but I also wanted it to be able to be hidden. I ended up not getting one and now I am glad I didn't. My best friend has three and she loves them, but they are all in places that can be hidden. Maybe when your husband goes job hunting he could wear a long sleeve shirt to cover the tatoo, and then put a bandage over it if he gets the job and is not allowed to wear long sleeve shirts. Then he could have it removed with his frist paycheck. I think that maybe people were just using the tatoo as an excuse. IF I was looking for help and I found someone that was just perfect, I wouldn't let a tatoo stop me from hiring them. i would make sure that is was covered and would maybe even give an advance to have it removed. I would say that your husband needs to keep looking. When the right job comes along, I don't think the tatoo will make him lose it.

thanks for the re assurance. however most of the companies here in our country doesnt want tatoos on their employees. i just wish my husband would be lucky enough to get a good job without being inspected having a tatoo or not. thanks for the comment =)
