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!
