Default Hands and knuckles

I've seen a few of these posts before but was intrested in people's opinions . I'd love to get my hands and knuckles done but wouldn't want to limit potential career opportunities in the future . What annoys me even more is there are people in higher positions than myself at my workplace that have shitty Cheryl cole style hand tattoos . And I know if I was to get my hands done with an actually nice piece of work it would be seen as more offensive than said shitty fashion type designs . Has anyone here with there hands tattooed ever suffered and prejudice regarding work ? I understand the argument if they judge me by my tattoos then i don't want to work for them anyway but the reality is the prejudice can be there . Be intrested to hear others opinions ?

That's the thing isn't it . I have plenty of space left but love the placement of a hand piece . However nothing can come before earning a living at the end of the day ...

Kind of off topic but I feel hand and neck tattoos should be earned, like after you have a majority of your body covered. My 2 cents...

I do agree with that aswel , but for example if you had a one off opportunity to get a small piece from an artist you'd wanted for years and wouldn't get the chance again hands are ideal . But it too annoys me when you see people with just hands and throat . Purely for the purpose of looking heavily tattooed in a jumper or whatever .

Yeah if have mapped out your body then I have no problems with it. It's the stupid Warped Tour body suits that piss me off! (Neck, hands, face tattooed while rest of the body is bare)

If you were getting your hands inked up in the near future, who would you go with? I am feeling Andres Acostas work for possibly a hand piece. Though, I am saving my hands in the meantime

That kind of irritates me as well. I am trying to save my homie from getting further into his Warped suit

Why though? Why does anything have to be earned? I'd put that in the same bracket as saying tattoos have to have meanings. Makes absolutely no sense to me.

I'm in the process of trying to start my own business and if it is successful over the first year my treat to myself will be both of my hands done as I no longer will have to work in the corporate world.

Would love to. My current employer would have no problems with me having my hands, knuckles or neck tattooed. I don't plan on working here for the rest of my life though. I guess if I carried on in the same industry (high end fashion) it wouldn't be so much of a problem.
