One of the common factors scaring away from tattooing on the body and forming a negative perception of it is the myth (and until the remnants of the past have disappeared – not quite a myth) about the prison origin of tattoos and the difficulties that tattooed people face when finding a job..
A group of researchers conducted a simple experiment, interviewing about 200 executives of entertainment establishments, asking them to choose a candidate for the vacancy of service personnel: a bartender and a waiter. The bartender went to a youth institution, and the waiter to an expensive and prestigious restaurant.
Tattoo – an assistant when applying for a job – photo 1
Half of the managers were shown photos of people without tattoos, and the second half were shown photos of the same job seekers for the position, but with tattoos added in Photoshop. A star was chosen and applied to the arm and wrist..
So there you go! According to the results of the study, the overwhelming majority of managers chose people with tattoos on their bodies for the bartender position, and they refused to tattooed people for the position of a waiter in an expensive restaurant..
Based on the results, it was concluded that when employed in a company that wants to attract attention in any way, it will be easier for tattooed people to get a job, but for conservative enterprises, a tattoo is really not entirely acceptable.
In conclusion, I would like to note that every year, the attitude towards tattooing is changing and changing with positive dynamics. It seems to us that in a dozen years, there will be almost no negative attitude towards tattoos, and the owners of tattoos will only benefit from their wearable drawings..
