Body Art and the Dress Code

I was reading a post by Jack Yoest on body art in the workplace and got to wondering about what companies are doing today. As a consultant I get asked about about dress codes, but no one has ever asked me about body art and other adornments. With the proliferation of tatooing today it is going to be a “problem” you are going to encounter the more you are hiring younger workers. So you may want to think about it now. What is going to be your criteria? Ability to do the job? What kind of contact with the customer? How visible? There is no “one” answer. It will depend on your business, your culture and your needs.

But, I would suggest you make that decision now, instead of “being caught with your pants down” (and your tatoo showing).
