    i know there probably loads of thses but i jsut thought id ask

    since my padres been going on about it

    if i get a tattoo on my inner right forearm will it 'ruin' my chances of gettin a job later on in lift

    cos its not 'acceptable'

    its annoying when some people are so closed minded

    in my opnion there would be ideal because you can always cover it with long sleeve tshirts or jackets etc

    As long as you can easily cover them then I don't see how it can effect your chances unless you're modelling or acting etc.

    Depends where you want to work. Long-sleeved shirt should cover it.

    I was always told..Never get tattoos below the wrist or above the neckline, so if necessary, they can be covered for work

    Even then, it doesn't really matter - The Rock has tattoos covering his body (it's a traditional thing in his culture, apparently), and he still does films half-naked.

    Having said that:-
    a) Can you really call The Rock an actor?
    b) He's probably an exception.

    As long as it can be covered it shouldnt be a problem.

    Sometimes it wont even need to be covered, but that all depends on the type of work you'll be doing.

    Hmmm perhaps it might hinder a job in teaching... but only if you want to wear short sleeves.

    it'll be okay if you can cover it. i cover my inner wrist tattoo with a watch or long sleeve easily.
    at my old job the uniform was short sleeved and it was more difficult, i had to wear a watch or a plaster over it and a guy who had this fore arms covered had to wear another shirt under the short sleeve uniform shirt :s teahcers at my senior school covered theirs, but at college they didn't...
