Do y'all have any /out/ related tattoos?
I really want something sort of along the lines of this, but I'm not sure how it would look on my more muscular calves.
Thought about getting a quote on my forearm, thought about getting antlers on my left shoulder, thought about a few others, etc. Honestly, if you're getting a tattoo, I think it should mean something to you. I haven't felt the need to get one, but perhaps one day I may. As others have said though, your picrelated looks a bit... odd... Trees are cool, tattoos CAN be cool, that's a weird looking one.
All shitposts look stupid and are in poor taste.
If you hate tattoos so much then hide the thread and save your edge for when you need to baton open your next bottle of mountain dew, faggot.
> placement not good for tree tattoo
> recomends arm not dick
I have a fouled anchor, a compass rose, a nautical star, and 2 ship's names; all on my shoulders/upper arms and all in grey and black.
This would be a cool tattoo, of course, I'll never get it, because I would ragret it.
The only acceptable tattoo is for your lord and savior.
Can he cast roots and entangle you?
Cool marijuana man tattoo
And the proof that your preconceived notions regarding tattoos are outdated and just plain wrong. Imagine how many people you've interacted with, or (gasp) relied on, have tattoos that you are completely unaware of. Does the thought make your Victorian sensibilities squirm and writhe in agony?

Why would they need to cover their tattoos if having one isn't a problem anymore?
Tattoo placement is a matter of personal choice. In my case, I haven't found a design that I feel strongly enough about that would also fit an area of my body that is typically exposed.
In my country, admittance to university is practically a formality now, as someone pro tat remarked - it's not the 50's any longer. Not everyone teaching a university class is decent or well educated. You could be teaching media studies to kids who failed school.
The view of tattoo'd people being scummy / lower class / from broken homes / criminals still holds true in my part of the world.
If it isn't going to hold you back from your chosen career, do it, but people will assume stuff about you, it's worse than being black in that sense, people actually choose to have tattoos.. which gives stark clues about their judgement.
What was she thinking?
What was he thinking?
>it's worse than being black in that sense
Being a tat man is like being a muslim, you're making a choice that indicates certain things about you, it's entirely fair for employers and everyone else to discriminate on this basis.
They told her to cover up with band aids, but she just looked like she'd been in a horrible accident so they sent her home anyway.
I'm not surprised parents wouldn't want someone like that near their kids.
Wow, this situation really sucks. One one hand, there's nothing she can do about her tattoos besides cover then up. She probably got these tattoos when she was much younger and didn't realize the impact it would have on her future. On the other hand, this is a strict Catholic school she's trying to get into. You can't be all tatted up like that in most schools, especially a religious one. It looks so unprofessional. It's also sending a bad message to the kids. They see a teacher with tons of tattoos, and maybe they want to get a few on their arms or neck too, not realizing that it will hurt their chances of getting a good job when they're older. And so the cycle continues.
She's being punished for a decision made by her younger, naive self. It's terrible, but it also would be terrible to have a bad image be reflected on the school for hiring someone with this many visible tattoos.
What she should do is try covering up her tattoos better. Maybe wearing a turtleneck, or a cute infinity scarf. That's all she really needs, a nice fashionable scarf. As for the hand tattoos, why not use cover-up to hide them?
And then at least if the students see her covering up all her tattoos, they'll learn a lesson about tattoos in the workplace.
Not only would I not hire this lady, I'd report her to the police as a suspected terrorist.
P.S. have friends that are lawyers, doctors, computer engineers and my brother is an architect that have tattoos and from what i have herd no one had to be naked at the job interview. :D
All you need is cover-up. Which is basically makeup that matches your skin tone perfectly that you use to cover blemishes on your face. They sell it in every shade imaginable so it's not hard to find a match for your skin tone. Although finding a good high quality one that can cover up dark ink on skin would get a little pricey. Or you could just layer the makeup which would cover it better.
Off topic, but what's with the new "type the numbers you hear" captcha?
>have friends that are lawyers, doctors, computer engineers and my brother is an architect that have tattoos
Bullshit. Everyone knows that people with tattoos are drooling retards that can't write english good. And they're poor and are American and fat. But all Americans are fat so I guess all americans have tattoos.
I took pic related myself, thought about getting it on my calf one day, just my calf looking like a tree with a trial blaze painted on it. I'll probably never get around to it.
I work a white collar job making 60k right out of college and have a good number of tattoos.
As long as you're not an asslord and get them on your face, neck, or hands..you're good to go.
Idiots, get with the times.
I know many professors (not community college) that have tattoos, I know a couple that have them in more controversial zones like the neck, or eyebrow.
Many people can have tattoos in their jobs, it doesn't affect performance. It only affects idiots views of them, aka You. So to be honest, it doesn't matter what you think
>I know many professors (not community college) that have tattoos, I know a couple that have them in more controversial zones like the neck, or eyebrow.
You must be american. In the UK, someone begins as a lecturer, then becomes a senior lecturer, then a reader, then if they're excellent, a professor.
In the US, anyone who teaches in a college is granted the title "professor".
I can well believe some of those morons have facial tattoos, but they would be a barrier to your fellowship at Cambridge.
>Many people can have tattoos in their jobs, it doesn't affect performance. It only affects idiots views of them, aka You. So to be honest, it doesn't matter what you think
This poor woman probably heard advice like yours, then discovered it very much does matter what people think of you in many many jobs.
It's not difficult to think of professional roles which are based upon client confidence.
>my perceptions are universally true
>if you disagree you must be "a fucking idiot"
Why are you acting like such an asshole? There are more decent ways to convey disagreement without acting like an angry 15-year-old.
This is why employers see tattoos and assume things about people, like a limited vocabulary or a tendency to be violent / ignorant. Pretty much every pro tattoo poster has been unable to express themselves without some kind of profanity / insults.
>hallo my name is chad im here for the interview
>i am unique creative and able to make good long term decisions
Not generally in places where tattoos would matter, at least for men that is.
I'm being an asshole because your question might as well have been
>why don't people with tattoos apply for jobs in the nude?
You're clearly retarded.
Also, I'm a little mad. I don't know if it has something to do with the /pol/ diaspora but recently /out/ has become
>things anon doesn't approve of and will shitpost every thread:
>recreational drug use
>spending money on nice things
There's a whole board for you to whine about what you consider "degenerate". Go there.
Not me, friend. That was my first post in this thread. It's shocking, though, that you think there is a legitimate reason for you to treat other people like shit.
I don't have an opinion on tattoos, but I don't see any issue with an /out/-related tattoo thread. The problem is when you get people like >>454624 who thinks that threads are invitations to spout opinions that weren't solicited. I don't know why these people can't simply click the "hide" button like a reasonable individual.
>That was my first post in this thread. It's shocking, though, that you think there is a legitimate reason for you to treat other people like shit.
So you decided to cherry pick the one abrasive post on the entire internet to get offended over?
You actually have taken no side in this debate but decided to post anyway because you care so much about how anons talk to each other?
You were just happily strolling along when you happened to read some hyperbolic speech, turned to your bible, recited a little prayer for wisdom, and despite it obviously not being answered, injected yourself into a heated argument you have zero opinion on just to request a little courtesy?
>she doesn't know that tattoos are Haram
Decapitation imminent. Use Mora for full /out/ experience.
You're really defensive, which is to be expected of someone who is called out for treating others poorly for no reason. Yes, I decided to post to draw attention to your childish behavior, behavior that you continue to exhibit up until this very moment.
Oh well then I apologize Reverend. Welcome to 4chan. Enjoy your stay. My little flicker of evil might have attracted you here but there are bonfires I'm sure only you can put out. May you be a hopeless beacon of politeness in the reality of the entire fucking internet you deluded self righteous shit for brains.
I may have to get my first tattoo. Dedicate to you.
'cause you're so special.
And you just keep acting like a child because you're anonymous on the internet.
>Welcome to 4chan. Enjoy your stay.
This is the issue. "It's 4chan so I can treat other people like shit" is the stupidest fucking reasoning ever, but it's so appealing to people for some reason. My guess is that they have no chance to express themselves healthily IRL so they take to the internet and treat other people like shit because there are no repercussions. God forbid someone point out your indefensible treatment of your fellow humans.
It doesn't matter if you're on 4chan, you're still shitting on someone else to make other people feel better and that still makes you a shitty person.
So you want to go back to that little gem where you side with the post that allegedly wasn't you stating that people with tattoos only wear clothes because they're ashamed of their tattoos? The inordinate lack of logic in that post was wholly deserving of ridicule.
Also, it's almost like you agree with me but you're being a real fucking weirdo about it.
>It's 4chan so I can treat other people like shit
Nope. Not really the case. You're applying an outside opinion on what is pretty normal discourse. This isn't the HR department, it's the bar room after work where coarseness is understood to be common parlance.
Your personal subjective rules about common courtesy don't apply to groups of people who agree to say what they want however they want and understand that this brand of communication is perfectly normal. There is no reasonable expectation of courtesy that adopts is rules from outside sources. This place has it's own ecosystem. You can't find your niche and you're playing self appointed better-than-thou in retaliation.
In fact, this whole line of discussion is in fact the result of YOUR aberrant behavior.This thread is now worse off with you in it despite the >all tattoos are shit
Guy you've been arguing with here. Sorry, that's not me. These are me:
It seems you've crafted the environment to fit your desires. Just because you see 4chan as the "anything goes" environment you're describing doesn't mean it is. My contentions are based on simple human interaction, whether that interaction occur on the internet, phone, in-person, whatever. Maybe treating others like shit is "common parlance" here, but that's not a defense; it's an appeal to the status quo. And, apparently, that status quo isn't as concrete as you'd like me to believe, otherwise I would not be challenging it, nor would >>455889, who seems to be equally embarrassed for you.
You've got the wrong guy as well. It sounds like the amount of shit-posting, and lack of IDs, has really interfered with everyone's ability to argue over such an inane, and ultimately meaningless, topic. Oh well.
>It seems you've crafted the environment to fit your desires.
Says the one who's defining what is offensive and what violates courtesy based on his personal "simple human interactions".
>my perceptions are universally true
this is you now
>Not generally in places where tattoos would matter, at least for men that is.
I couldn't teach a class in a short sleeved shirt if I had tattoos - parents would complain, but worse than that kids wouldn't fucking shut up about it. Rumours would start, Sir is a drug addict, Sir is a killer, parents would come and ask questions. Schools in some countries are more liberal I guess.
>Welcome to 4chan. Enjoy your stay.
You do realize that moot's final request to the community was for us to be nicer to each other, right?
pls no bully
>All things that someone would assume about you without any communication if they saw a tattoo on you.
No, I'm pretty sure they would just assume it was the Jews.
If I see tattoo people, I assume they'll be unable to express themselves without resorting to vulgarity, insults, I assume they'll have a limited vocab and be quick to temper.
All things that have been pretty much been borne out as true in the thread..
>I'll never get it, because I would ragret it.
>Sorry, that wasn't me. And no, I don't agree with your opinions at all.
this whole thread
>I assume they'll be unable to express themselves without resorting to vulgarity, insults, I assume they'll have a limited vocab and be quick to temper.
>people with tattoos are dumb, violent, apes
these are the exception to the rule. if they have enough foresight, modesty, discretion, intelligence or whatever, to get the tattoo in a place that is hidden under clothing in most situations if they choose to, then they probably are more decent people
>Except...how do you know that you haven't encountered decent humans who have concealed their tattoos?
I don't mix in those types of circles personally. So I'm pretty sure I haven't, but like AIDS patients, how to be completely sure? Not associating with faggots is a good start though.
>They told her to cover up with band aids, but she just looked like she'd been in a horrible accident
Holy hell that made me laugh. I'm showing this to my kids.
jesus christ is that the dumb cunt? look at that stupid shit she has all those fucking metal hooks in her face. this bitch hasnt changed or learned anything at all. i wouldnt want this dumb cunt anywhere near me or my children. i dont want her anywhere near any children. fucking trash needs to be deposited in the garbage and kept there
lol wow anon that's harsh. I agree I wouldn't want her near children, handling / preparing food or in a position of responsibility, but she could still find honest work.
At the very least, she serves as an example that tattoos do impact your choice of work.
I wouldn't wilfully associate with a tattoo'd person, any more than I would an intravenous drug user. We can never know what people are hiding, but as you grow older, people mostly hang out with others of the same socio economic groups, professions. I wouldn't know how to meet a tattoo person on a personal level, I've only seen them in the streets.
>you don't mix in any circles
The wit of tattoo people precedes them.
>Are you a unicorn maybe?
Man you must live in a slum. Not that guy but I only see tattoo people when I look for them (buskers, homeless people, bikers). If you're living a professional lifestyle, you won't meet many vermin.
How the fuck would you know? Do you work and live in a nudist colony? Do you not realize every person you see in a professional setting has 90% of their body covered by clothing? Do you personally strip search every acquaintance to make sure they live up to your antiquated decency rules?
>How the fuck would you know?
By talking with others face to face, you may gain a good idea of their views on tattoos / drugs / politics etc. If you ever have the chance to make friends, you'll have a good idea of how they feel about many issues without stripping them naked.
Why is bad taste ubiquitous?
Didn't your mother teach you that just because something is popular, it's not necessarily a good thing? Wait - she's covered in tattoos, right?
Most of my professional and social circles, find hard drug use and tattoos to be the preserve of the underclass. We could all be lying to each other, but I doubt it.
Thats just it though. You're conflating how the underclass does things with the act itself.
A doctor might get his kid's name tattooed on his chest. Your local bar slut has a tramp stamp. That war hero who went on to have a succesful and respected career might have "johnny" on his ass. If you'd been through wgat he'd been through you'd understand. Prison Mike has a barcode on his neck.
>soldier with tat
>barslut with tat
>prisoner with tat
I can believe it.
>A doctor might get his kid's name tattooed on his chest.
Yeah and he might not. We could substantiate the others from memory and experience, for some reason they seem far more likely. What is that reason though?
