This article tells me is if you organizing union. If you sell leftover coffee on even I would imagine several it's not big for the union mute union is Asian of their orders. Or maybe you can't stop you customers from surfing the Internet for adult content if they want. Or for having its hat to -- seven year old Michigan buddies stuff. I don't know if it was between that and waitresses we'd have been anyway identified simply. As Kayla in Detroit this year is a tiny -- -- to -- hand. When she started working here five years ago nobody brought it up Sunni you're answering it -- Analysis -- makes management given thirty days get rid of -- should be fired and apparently she tries to. Covered up with make up an operating jaguar opinion poll pretty simple do you think less of somebody. That hasn't had to. Why you'd be thrashing last civil whole Lotta people you blood got to tell you for the first time. Ever I actually thought about getting its -- -- you I was in Ireland I honestly -- all. Didn't do it my daughter was pushed me to do it she has -- -- TI. Sees some of the nice is looking business. Women and men in this building. Now worth tattoos got -- money ankle humble play again and places I don't know where they got him. I was gonna get saying you know Irish. You know -- dead. Reflects my outlook on things but -- and evidence as a reminder of the trip is you know ultimately this country again. Today as a reminder of the trip and in a place where people couldn't see. But it didn't happen Chris Fields and expert -- -- writer and an HR consulting -- is right now. About tattoos in the workplace in the interviews and all that stuff morning -- Thank you retain a time and guess when your preparing your resonate under special skills nor. Qualities or whatever heavily inked wouldn't be something you'd put on there. Exactly. -- -- And so what your client for hop. You know as he knows neighborhood restaurant the other night managers noticed got to look at -- how many people. And tattoos announcing it will I'd be adhered to and twenty years ago would it have been like this and and -- and non. Well -- you know. Later. Statistics show that one then four Americans that accident -- -- equipment -- around 3035%. The people lower -- -- your old or younger are more climate gate. Perhaps the and you know I'm noticing -- you know younger. Achieved that they're giving him early eighties and I have and the members leases. Scored high school and occasionally I have to pick them up in the topic and got in some other than their -- -- the students. Would -- to -- it didn't surprise me that. You know it is -- want to talk about -- culture but the visible once did that immediately copper you know that -- -- know free trade area. So it didn't beauty -- uncontrollable little. Bit approximately. Fire and -- got -- but they do policies doubled and plainly outline that in Egypt as well taxes. Well the thing that when you were saying that I was like you know others not only did I notice more people with tattoos but maybe I noticed it because and use a phrase did not hand. But man I mean it's like today not a tapestry would you call it like a we. Are mural a mural that they have on themselves. News -- and allow more actually not that. The truth is that people that seem to make up more than one you know they they but Pepsi and battle because -- -- -- -- -- You know. Most people are set to compete at a lot on television commercials and just you know being interviewed people -- about attractive but. Awful into the pool as their visit the areas that -- now. But the -- line. Places where you really can't call them you know I'll be -- -- -- and it's a much older but as you know recovered until. It's a concern that the now they're everywhere but it -- the -- more common. You know anger as and I thought about getting one but I still. Don't get mad at me people with tattoos but I guess because it was drilled into me. As a younger person that. You know people would have had had tattoos that had tattoos at that time maybe had been around the line. Or maybe unnecessarily professionals might be part of a rough crowd or whatever and I just wonder what kind of vestiges they have of that money comes to. Prospective employers when it comes as some people it. You know might be in -- 50s60 year old Rangers even no older than that and it comes time to promote somebody to partner would. If they were at the health club though are working out playing squash whatever these people do and and found out that one had Coopers and had a tattoo like you're saying where it wasn't visible. If that would somehow in the deep recesses of their minds think animators and their guy or woman.

And we were in short Obama shirt. You know there have been encountered -- -- -- older generation and maybe an adult that. Maybe give him the recent of their -- or against but it is -- you know younger. Think people are I think in the -- that -- -- it you know it's one thing works. Even people who elected. -- partner -- you'd probably can't seem to know the so even -- that person and detection. They don't wanna see someone was kept in all over the even. But -- -- but it's like easily implement build their new. That it wants the you know written with after the Kraft Mac on the -- -- -- -- they want to be conservative. What part. Billion into using text comes in -- Tommy. I'll never spend another nickel at Starbucks because they don't have a problem taking tattooed people's money. They truly don't debate the debate that but. That is populated. -- about that moment though but but not just be real clear now -- recruitment problem to be here. -- -- They don't mind commitment to work and it can be visible you know that more accurate so that work to declare at least there. So you have a visible tattoo when you wanna go honored on a job interview. And you can a completely maybe it makes sense from your. For arm down -- liberty handle long -- long flight. Others not at the lead erode the media technology idea do you put one hand on top of the other -- if you get busted hiding it -- -- were Chris and we're.

Right very well you know that -- ticket -- argument but it looked like we did earlier more people against members start to be a little bit more acceptable. And they are progressive.

You know that he tattooed on Indonesia's. Secular. I. Man how old you -- 51 holes where you. What I meant that I was -- there. What was it let me add a little bit about it fly. I'm elated an airplane in my life where I get done -- -- transformations. And everything. And -- about it. My record and you know WQ transformations. You know the like Munich -- -- and -- beautiful butterfly. And to me that it is a perfect symbol of where I was going to you know with the transformation in my life. And and and trying to get real personal with you that where your party body these stats. But have you worried about. Mom let me let me say this is that in this gets older perhaps it's not now and is -- against the frame is that you city. You know keep. It the placement where do you get your catcher is. And then. Well but. Like to invisible. And and then implement it and I don't implement it in them you know looking. Like death. -- And it is. And I got to. At the age of 49. I had on the attack that killed me. -- I turn 49 years. And that. That is that we're in Asia and it began. You know. I got a ticket. ERT think anybody's ever looked down upon you because of the tattoos. I'm now -- a lot of people in the people who think that cute. You know like. It. Lives and that an -- that really unusual. And then you know what did you give -- -- By the -- on the way you know that really cool and that you know and congratulations. And so I'm. -- and I plan on getting and that one. -- a couple of months. I have to what you meant to go I have cancer.

Time to celebrate. -- -- -- We'll god -- I think after bill establishing good like banks are taken in time nickel and wanting more calls. But it is only come back do you think the last of somebody for example -- -- -- yet visible tattoos. Tommy Tucker when you take you call here on WW. I Tommy Tucker got a video talking about ten to Jews indeed think less of people that have them once is seen him more -- are you surprised and think you know. Some pretty creative side of that person I don't know about David Metairie good morning you are on WW. K -- There's like you I would like to address the big elephant in the room here on the bottom line here is that that. Most people elected to captains. And people don't actors are polite people to do -- have to -- -- -- -- okay. You like to obviously we know he can't get rid of it so polite and yes it's beautiful and it's great or and I think he should be playing normal walks. But the fact that matters. Com it's trash white black Chinese that marriage just trash trash trash -- or the girl traditional guy. And the bottom line. A lot of people think that you have a small minority. I think it actually and since. Oh good looking -- don't get your August trot and all American after it's been dormant for a couple hundred years in New Guinea. Right so there but if you wanna -- is gaining. And catch you up quickly so in those years or whatever you know whatever they do and what -- caught that trap I understand. But me personally. And -- for top hundred house on the chat to and at the -- put it on campus. Chime in Dayton. Because you know about -- obvious Rickles how you know how. -- those guys that probably -- more money. Then and it will be poignant because Portugal question I guess -- at all and when you kittens. And straight. Let me let me ask you this -- you said it's the elephant in the room is that it's trashy why. Would dent do you think people get -- do you think that everybody dead. Gets intent to his trashing. Well you know let's say where it started from the mean assailant would come and they get loaded they go to all rooms. That you -- -- and it blows and put it all and that was one thing to still do all right okay now. Coming back down here we aren't there on you know I think it it it. You know you're you're trying to show the establishment you you know you point -- you know and I mean you look at your finger and physical -- I look historically won't let you go and I appreciate you call it if there was somebody that you perceived is yes somebody that had the same beliefs -- -- Felt the same that you did in and they made a conscious decision. To get a tattoo would you thing then. Would you changer thing about people with tattoos -- change your opinion about that person says no apparently there -- thought that war. They. You know maybe eat -- there and he's worked so there's like that. In -- means that he probably needed talk somebody about because that's probably not the right move to go get a tech tour. -- you know supple and want but I you know again and mean I mean if you can. In the general public. Adult league pitching good case that you're at war and get my -- -- at all clear. But if you had one that was hit -- analysts you know mother's name which you passed away or something like that. And you really felt like that that's that important Q what it's that important you not answer the issue rest of the world. Because nobody -- of interest right I mean they -- that spot in the -- Hey let me Jason is -- about opinions and template you celtics' rescuers do you have kids. Get well. Or. What if at some point you'd daughter would have been overs on -- -- and you were to get a little glimpse of a -- to which your reaction be and that's what a good happen and just your. What you are those are actually date and so on. But on the other two this is my beliefs without knowing in 98 absolutely. They stop it appears that that these. You know I wouldn't it's not what I think so what it's saying it's what other people perceive about that.
