I'm going to say the same thing as I did to someone else. This is about tattoos AT WORK. In my previous job, I covered them because I worked with people of many cultures, and didn't want to offend anyone. At my current job (which I did for nearly 15 years before children), I HAVE to cover them because again, I service global customers, so it's a requirement of the job. Just like when I go to other countries, I familiarize myself with their culture and customs, so as not to do or say something offensive. Just because I'm not from their culture doesn't mean I can't respect it. Apparently this is a very, very bad thing. You learn something new every day.
