Breaking news: Face tattoos lower your chances of getting hired.

Who’da thunk it?

Scribble chins, tramp stamps and gang insignia on your moniker just do not cut it in the workplace.

Statista says:

Tribal tattoos on your face might scare off employers and hinder your chances of getting a job. […] At least that is what a survey by YouGov makes us want to think. Neck tattoos and inked hands also significantly lower your chances of getting hired. According to the HR decision makers taking part in the survey, the safest spot to get a tattoo without risking staying unemployment is the lower back. Anyway, if somebody purposely starts to show off his or her tramp stamp during a job interview, it is highly doubtful whether any employer would stay interested.

Colour me surprised!

In solidarity with the those in the world’s most despised demographic, WH has decided to ‘come out’ as an old white male. WH enjoys exercising the white-male privilege that Whaleoil provides for him by writing the occasional post challenging climate change consensus; looking at random tech issues that tweak his interest, as a bit of a tech nerd; or generally poking the borax at anyone in public life who goes on record revealing their stupidity. WH never excelled on the sports field because his coaches never allowed him to play in his preferred position on the right-wing. WH also enjoys his MG.
