OP here! Thanks for all the comments and concerns. To make this shorter I've already answered specific questions directly. She was a really nice lady and thought my hand tattoos (flowers,) were nice and just wanted to see the rest of the hidden one she noticed. After she realized just how far up my leg it went, and how high my skirt had been pulled she did back away. I could be mad at her but really I just see it as a funny story to tell, no harm was meant and she meant it as a compliment in her own way. She did tip me, and it helped my business at least since other customers felt bad for me and over tipped me. ;) Keep the jokes coming, I think they're all great!

What a bitch! Why would she do that in front of everyone without asking you first?
This has happened to me before while I was working as a cashier. As I was ringing up a lady at the check out, we were talking about tattoos and the ones we have. She noticed I have one on my chest and proceeded to pull my shirt down to get a better look at it. Some people just forget about boundaries and personal space, or they just don't care. Either way, it is pretty rude. That old woman was wrong to hike OP's skirt up to get a better look, but I'm pretty sure she was just curious. All she had to do was ask for a better look at it, provided OP would be comfortable showing it off.

If this place is so high end that it is common for customers to comment on tattoos, maybe it would be better to wear non-see-through pantyhose anyways. It would have prevented the nosy lady as well.
A comment on the tattoo doesn't necessarily mean it's a negative comment and if the business doesn't have a problem with it then it's fine. Also, you can't blame this on the OP. What should have prevented the lady from being nosy is a respect for other's personal space and knowing that you don't touch anyone without their permission, much less completely pull up their skirt.
14, I'm not at all disagreeing with you. You are right with everything you said. My suggestion to cover up is just based on the fact that in that high class environment the tattoo obviously sticks out. Covering it might just make OP blend in better with the rest of the stuff, and this is still a desicion that OP needs to make.
Unfortunately opaque pantyhose are too similar to leggings in appearance, which are strictly against our dress code, but my GM has made an exception now since this has happened. I understand where you are coming from, but even with sheer pantyhose it's only an extremely small portion of the tattoo that shows and so far she's the only one to have noticed it even existing.
OP, thank you for NOT misunderstanding me *glances at downvotes* It sounds like you are in a very healthy work environment. There are types of pantyhose that are not totally "legging look" opaque but don't let a lot of skin show through, if you can find those, they might work best, then?
Just out of newfound paranoia I now use opaque. Maybe some day I will go more sheer, definitely not any time soon though. And for #37, most people nowadays don't wear pantyhose, unless it's for a little more warmth or practical reasons. I wish I could go bare leg, it'd be much cheaper, but unfortunately I have super sensitive skin which gets really irritated from being bare.
Isn't that a little bit drafty and a little bit risky "going commando" just in case your skirt doesn't always stay down for some reason as in this example?
I have an extremely tight fitting A line skirt that has never ridden up since I bought it, unfortunately I was running late for work that day and figured that alone would be enough. Since then I have not had an issue but still make sure to grab underwear just in case.
Ya, I have no idea how you have the guts to go commando in a skirt! Granted, I couldn't go commando in pants, but a skirt just seems way too risky. It's Murphy's law isn't it? Lol. If the lady didn't pull your skirt up you probably would've tripped on some spilt water and landed with your legs in the air. Eek! Definite fyl!
it's okay, apparently even as a female I have issues with skirt names. It is not an a-line which is a flare skirt. The one I wear I actually don't know the name of (sorry for mistaking it,) but it's extremely fitted and goes almost to my knees. It's actually pretty difficult to walk in which is why it never occurred to me that it'd ever ride up or anything.
