Intricate and exquisite tattoos are indeed a sight to behold. However, Catherine Taibi of the Huffington Post writes that highly visible skin art may ruin one’s chances of landing a job, based on a survey conducted by Dr. Timming from St. Andrew’s University School of Management in Scotland. The various employers who were polled said they remain reluctant to hire people with tattoos because of how customers may perceive the latter.

“After Dr. Timming interviewed hiring managers and recruiters from 14 different organizations — who worked in places including banks, schools and prisons — he found the majority of those surveyed said that visible tattoos remain a stigma, according to Management Issues, a management information website.”

While some Albuquerque employers might perceive tattoos differently than their Scottish counterparts, the need to manage customer perception might also make them think twice about hiring tattooed individuals. Fortunately, safe and thorough tattoo removal in Albuquerque can significantly increase one’s chances of gainful employment.

Those who wish they never got inked in the first place can drop by an aesthetic skin care center like Belleza Med Spa for safe laser tattoo removal. A minimum of two visits is usually required to get rid of tattoos, although this can change due to factors like the patient’s age, the patient’s skin color, and the size of the tattoo. In most cases, no anesthesia is required as patients only feel a gentle, throbbing pulse that is highly tolerable.

The job market remains undeniably tough, so jobseekers who are otherwise qualified yet get turned down for one job after another due to their visible tattoos might wish to enhance their desirability to employers. For these jobseekers, Albuquerque tattoo removal services may prove to be a wise option.
