Would you still consider a tattoo visable at work unprofessional?

No, my associate has a few of them. As long as you’re not in a formal review or client facing, whatever 😉

Kind of hard not to be client facing in IB..

He’s an associate, only time a client is going to see him is in a full suit or a tailored dress shirt. He’s been on golf outings where his tattoos show and he still does well with them.

Maybe you missed the part where he said visible

I would stay away from them ... until recently, tattoos were not considered ‘body art’, but indicated ‘rougher’ origins (gangs, prison, etc.) and a lot of older people (potentially those either overseeing your comp/promotion or as clients) might not have fully embraced them as socially acceptable. If you’re going to get one, there’s no reason not to put it in a place that’s regularly covered by work wear. A friend (in construction/very high end kitchen design) who regularly wears polo shirts as his ‘work uniform’ had his two daughters’ names in an elegant script on his forearms. He found that a particular (and lucrative) clientele has both religious and socially-traditional objections to tattoos and it significantly hampered his bottom line. He ultimately had them removed (more painful than putting them on, but still somewhat visible as scars). You have to ask yourself 1) why you would want to have one (they’re still not sure about the long term effect of ink to your body - a reason for me not to have indulged) and 2) why you feel it should be visible during work hours, considering the limited amount of flesh that’s actually exposed in banking on a daily basis. I realize I’m being pragmatic, but styles and attitudes may change and you might regret having it visible forever ... why run the risk?

My parents were super conservative with my dressing when I was growing up. No dresses showing legs. I’m super resentful of this and feel like this is how they controlled me. Now I’m a grown married women with a child and my mom still imposes her cultural standards /limitations on me . She won’t go anywhere with me unless I wear a long dress /cover legs and if I visit her-it’s a big fight. The only thing is that she helps me so much with my toddler and kind of need her help.
