You don't judge people by race, creed, or color--or what color they choose to paint their skin. SOmething about freedom is thrown in there somewhere--is a tattoo not fredom of choice? That would be a violation of your civil rights.

There is nothing else to say except this is sheer stupidity.

But then what about the people who have gang related tats but are no longer in a gang? Sometimes tats can be expensive to remove or cover!

i agree my cousins are paying a fortune to get all their old school gang tattoos removed, but see even they realized it wasnt a positive thing especially after you have children and want a normal life.

You may think it's lame, but check it out...unfortunately this is the world we live in. If you have allot of tattoos (or anything that makes you look out of the ordinary, hair color, heavy or light weight, physical limitations, and yes....even skin color unfortunately) and you think you are not being judged, think again. This is exactly what so many people do. I'm not condoning it, saying it's right or saying that I do this, but I can tell you, places like renting apartments, renting houses and in the workplace is where it lives and breathes.

Yeah that's totally true. I actually know people like that. I'm totally against discriminating against people with tattoos like I said . I just said that I *kinda* can understand how someone would be weary of people with certain types of symbols/pictures/sayings tattooed on them. Not saying I would be, just that I can kinda see how someone would be.

Well,its lame,and give more of those smilies,but its all around us. I have been discriminated in school for having pierced lip-that was on university,where one of the professors refused to see me for one paperwork i had to do for him,until i removed 'that thing',he just turned away and wouldnt say a word. I was so pissed,but there was nothing i could do.

I knew I was going to be quoted...


Anyways, I agree and knew of that - was watching some documentary and gay folks and were denied living space because of their sexual preference.

Discrimination in many forms is alive and well unfortunitly. I am TG and feel I have been the victim of it, its not a nice feeling. Its unfair and unjust, but the general public's attitudes to people who are different is slowly getting better over time. However we still have a long way to go.

Discrimination against people with tattoos is just plain stupid.
