This article was someone writing to this website about a predicament they’re in at their job. A man had just hired a woman as a transport nurse, and she was super qualified and was great at her job, but had a small tattoo of a dolphin on the inside of her wrist. The hospital they worked for had a dress code policy that says all tattoos should be covered. When she worked in the NICU, which requires short sleeves and a good hand washing between every contact, the tattoo became an issue. During her orientation, the NICU educator said she was unable to finish because she didn’t meet the hygiene policy nor the dress code due to her tattoos. To make things worse, there were already two NICU nurses with tattoos. One was hired before the tattoo policy was issued and the other one had hers scheduled to be removed. The person asked if this was technically discrimination.

This whole article talks about the history of tattoos and how certain businesses can have rules against their employees having visible tattoos if they need to keep a specific image for their company. An example is a case that a girl by the name of Kimberly Cloutier started with Costco. She sued for the right to wear her 11 piercings and eyebrow piercing while working at a Costco. This article applies to my own paper because if it gives me both sides of the issue I am discussing. The employers side and the employees side.

This article talks about how discrimination is not illegal, except when involving a religion, but also how the amount of people getting tattoos is increasing every year. The rest of the article gives many more paragraphs of facts and quotes about people with careers and tattoos. This article is important to my paper so I can give facts and evidence to help support my claim.

This article mentions a company that accepts everybody wither all of their tattoos and piercings for jobs. It would be a great addition of sources for my paper, because it shows that there are places who will hire people with their tattoos and piercings.

This article is by far my favorite, due to the way it was designed. It’s so colorful and full of facts for the good side, the bad side, the pretty side and the ugly side. It gives so many facts and sources for every side of my argument. It’s not so much of an article as it is a playful website.
