Depends what you do. David Beckham has doen OK (IMO). Perhaps not the best image for jobs involving marketing and face to face stuff. If its under clothes then I suppose you would be OK, but with a tattoo like this...

...you may run into difficulties, and I would imagine you run the risk of limiting your 'employment market' so to speak.

actually bg1 both me and my OH have large tattoos, both on over 30k a year and no 'look' was needed.... now get back in your cage why dont you

somebody asked me to post a picture....so i did!! all i was asking, was if using a certain cream was ok on my arm! i got my response and other posts came after! im not crying, its just sad people like you who interfere with peoples posts that just annoy other members. I have my job at the moment and my employers are fine with what i have. In fact most like my tattoos i have, and if needs be....i'll wear a long sleeve shirt to cover what has to be covered!

you wont have a choice when you get a job that invloves interacting with customers, that if will get one know because of this.
don't feed the large and whiny troll people, he might go away....ha!

Savlon is fine for tats, Prep H is also pretty good but ensure you use the cream not the gel.
not my choice of style but a very nice tattoo none the less mate!

we should be so lucky lol.

if you get a coloured tat i recommend cling film aswel, yes, makes the tat sweat alot but also keeps the colour alot more vibrant!

Ignore BG1 he rarely has anything constructve to add:thumbsup:

i really like it, it looks like its been well done, the outline looks nice and smooth which is the hardest part
BG1 stop being so narrow minded, you'll be surprised at the amount of high professional people are covered in tattoos and you'd never know, it tends to be those that work everyday in the general public that cant really have visable tattoos, if u go to work in a suit non the wiser. Having a tattoo is about expressing yourself, sometimes people regret them but often they are a mark of your history, what kindof person u was at the time, and a tattoo like skulls and roses is a classic design, it will never date, so good choice, its not like he got the latest disney character or something thatl mean nothing in 10 years I hate people that judge people with tattoos, i get looked at like im going to murder someone, yet I'm considered by most a very kind and laid back person, I find it very offensive! rant over!
I now have pics ofmy tattoo finished....its not a great picture as its quite dark and that wsas soon after it was done but here it is...
