tattoo discrimination at work – stories

tattoos-at-work

A very important issue and – sadly – still not resolved! The Guardian has an interesting idea and hopefully they’ll get not only quite a few responses from the readers but also will be able to bring it back into the spotlight to discuss it. Sure, there are more important issues in the world but discriminatiing others on basis of their personal aesthetic choices is not right at all and why not to try to change the world one step at a time?

Traditional Polynesian tattoos appear in the new film by Disney and – apparently – the company tried hard to make it right. Hopefully it’ll make at least a few ppl to see how varied, old, and rich in meanings tattoos are.

From Korea tattoos by Zihee – small, subtle, beautiful!

be different or not! doesn’t matter!

One of my fav BME t-shirts (and i still have an impressive collection of these!) says “I’ve never wanted to be different. I’ve just wanted to be myself” and it describes my eccentric by Ntature self quite well. Among the stories from a tattoo convention in Canada you’ll find quite different a statement but the cool thing about being modified and open-minded – you just acknowledge and respect other ppl’s points of views and opinions!

An interesting story about a serious disease, a loss, an unexpected gain and a fight to live with we have!

always more than skin!

Not the latest news but apparently having tattoos may actually help you get hired. Is there a catch? Sure, there is – companies will gladly ride your coat tales and try to rub off the cool image you allegedly sport.

Cool or not, these portraits are simply beautiful – one should amdire ppl ready to create their own beauty standards without caring what the rest of the world thinks!

Finally, a very interesting portrait of an American tattoo artist turned Japanese and some insight into the Japanse culture and its attitude towards the tattoo art. An interesting read for sure!
