Speaking

Tattoo is more and more popular, some of our friends also have tattoos on our body. Some can be seen and some cannot be seen. Tattoo is a personal issue, to myself, I will not get one because it hurts. to my friends, I think it’s ok because it makes them more beautiful. Some people need tattoos because it can cover their scars. From the perspectives of employers, I think it’s common they have some concerns on the tattoo issues, because the large ones are usually linked to the dangerous person. It makes them less professional. from my own perspective, I think it’s a personal behavior and should not be judged.

Tattoo is getting more and more popular, some of our friends also have tattoos on their body. Some can be seen and some cannot be seen. Tattoo is a personal affair/ matter, to myself, I will not get one because it hurts. As of my friends, I think it’s ok because it makes them more beautiful. Some people need tattoos because it can cover their scars. From the perspectives of employers, I think it’s normal to have concerns on the tattoo issues, because the large ones are usually linked to the dangerous people.

Do you have any tattoos? I don’t. I’ve never been brave enough to go under the needle. But if you do have one, you are not alone. According to a report by Experian, the number of tattoo parlours in Britain increased by 173% between 2004 and 2014. Tattoos have always been controversial – personally and culturally. Some people love them and some hate them. So, are they good or bad?

These days, one in five people in the UK has some ink– whether it’s a commemorative date, a sleeve or a full body suit. What’s responsible for this rise in popularity? “You see a lot of celebrities getting tattooed,” says Lee Clements of the British Tattoo Artist Association speaking on BBC radio. As a result, people want to copy them or it becomes a fashion thing – certain tattoos become a trend.

Employers have become more accepting of visible tats too. Last year, London’s Metropolitan Police relaxed a ban on recruiting candidates with visible body art. And earlier this year, Air New Zealand said it would end a ban on body art to allow workers to express their individuality and cultural heritage.
