With your name instating heather can't you cover that tattoo with your hair?
If you know your company doesn't want visible tattoos don't get visible tattoos and then complain when you get busted for it. I know I have to say this next part for a certain audience, so... I know she might have gotten the tattoo before she started working there but if the policy is "no visible tattoos" then cover them. If you uncover them it's your own fault.
Holy feminists batman. It was safe to assume for #1 that the hair could be covered by the tattoo. Even if a female has short hair it generally isn't buzzed like a mans hair and considering the fml says that some hair was ripped out, that's pretty much an indicator too...
Depending on where you work, why not just cover the tattoo with your hair? I could see why you'd have to keep your hair up if you worked in a restaurant. But if you work in an office or something, just keep your hair down. You'll save yourself the pain of ripping hair out and having to buy band aids all the time!!
Well I didn't mean to cause an uproar! I'm very educated in my rights and I understand what they mean. Everyone has a right to express themselves as they wish, but I also understand that sometimes it can go to far and people will be required to take responsibility. What I'm saying is why should this person be written up for a tattoo behind the ear? That's all! Sorry for any confusion.
Shouldn't have gotten a tattoo at all
This begs the question, did the boss know that the tattoo was there or did he actually look for one?
I know, right? OP could've gotten her tattoo after she was hired, so I suppose it's possible the boss never knew about it, but to get written up over it? Sadly, I've known a few bosses/managers who were actually this ignorant and I'm very much hoping for the follow up.
Bosses can be jerks. I got written up for reporting sexual harrasment from another coworker towards me. Shitty bosses suck. However, i wish there were a follow up for this, explainin if the boss already knew about the tat and never did anything or if he only wrote OP up because of the complaint, or what....
How is the boss a jerk? It's ops fault completely for having a tattoo and not knowing it was against the rules at her workplace. Lots of companies frown upon visible tattoos, so be smart about where you're getting them and don't get mad when someone thinks it makes you look unprofessional.
I don't understand why people are so offended by ink. Unless it's derogatory or gang related.
I'm wondering how a band-aid could rip out her hair (assuming OP is female). They don't exactly have wax strip like strength. It makes sense that behind the ear wouldn't fit snug as you suggest so it probably didn't have a good grip on the hair anyway. Unless it was one of those fabric band-aids. Those fuckers are mean.
The hairs behind your ears and around your neck are usually very fine and short, so it makes sense to me that a fresh bands is could rip/pull them and cause pain. My advice is to touch the adhesive with your finger multiple times so that the oils make it less sticky, but just sticky enough to stay in place.
there just jealous because they want tattoos. say its like your human rights to express yourself
Your rights ends where another person's rights begin. You have the right to tattoo whatever you want on your body, and other people have the right to judge you if they don't like it. While I myself like body art and I have tattoos myself, I get them in places I can easily hide so as to maintain a professional image at my workplace. But using the "freedom of speech/freedom of expression" thing isn't gonna work too well for anyone. Employers have the right to turn you away if they don't see you fitting with their image. It's that simple.
