Now, let's move on the next topic!

How does it work? Write a quality opinion/comment on this topic and we will choose 3 random winners to win 3,000 points each! (No need to post your own Topic)

Our question this week is: Should employers discriminate against potential job candidates because they have tattoos? This is in light of a public appeal on Facebook by a 19-year-old New Zealand man, who has been finding it difficult to find employment due to a large tattoo on his face.

Ground Rules: Open to AU and NZ members only. Each week, the TolunaTeamAUNZ will create a topic on the AU and NZ sites regarding a specific theme, and ask members to provide their opinion. Three winners will be selected from each Australia and New Zealand to win 3,000 points. Winners will be chosen at random from all eligible posts. Eligible posts must be in compliance with the Toluna Member Code of Conduct. Winners will be announced within 2 weeks from launch of Topic, and bonus points credited to member accounts via direct credit.

Certain jobs would require no tattoos to be seen.

Everyone makes mistakes of getting abnormal tattoos. If the work place does not agree with exposing the tattoo they can always cover it up

It depends where the tattoos are and whether they're offensive i.e. sexist, racist etc... I think that if an employer interviews a person and finds that they're capable of getting the job done, that usually means that their look meets the requirements too. If you're going for a job where you are the first person a client sees (admin, reception) then it doesn't look good to have a face full of tatts or even a nose ring or eyebrow ring for certain corporate companies. So it depends as well what industry you're going to work in. Unfortunately that's the way it is and everyone has a choice with tatts and where to place them. I have a couple tatts and got them in my early 20's when I had no job, however I still thought about which areas I thought would be most appropriate when I do decide to get a job so I got them in places that aren't obvious i.e. ankle and shoulder blade. I have seen tattoo artists recommend those that get arm tattoos to keep them high so they can still be covered in t-shirts which is a nice gesture on their behalf IMO.

Depending where and what the tattoos are. If they are unoffensive no they should be judged on their capabilities. If they are offensive and in a place like your face then that may be different.

Employers need to look the way employees complete the jobs fantastic and good behavior in the business they don't need to check the ratios,racial or background

i believe that in general no it shouldn't but if someone has foul language and inappropriate images that can not be covered up or face tattoos then they shouldn't be in a professional environment
