I'm currently working as a optical technician in a lab in australia, i don't deal with customer's face to face i just make up there script's. I'm covered in tattoo's, 2 sleeves, knuckle's, both side's of my neck, throat, back of my neck, collar bone.
My boss and everyone i work with are cool with me having tattoo's, I love my job, i've been there for nearly 3 year's, i am a qualified optical technician.
I don't show my tattoos off, but a hand tattoo would look really nice connecting onto my sleeves. It's casual dress but i always wear long sleeves with a collar.
I want to move to new york to do exactly what i'm doing in australia but i'm a bit worried if i get my hands done it will kill my chance's of getting a job at another optical lab cause it's will be impossible to cover up my hand tattoos. Back home my boss said it's okay if i get my hands done.
I dress really nice, i'm not like a punk or anything, i don't look violent, my tattoo's are professionally done and taste full, i always get comment's on how nice my neck looks, my neck can be covered if i do the top button up.
I was wondering if this would wreak my chances working in a optical lab like lens crafters or any other optical labs?
ps: the tattoo artist his work is amazing.
