It discusses the conflict between the growing number of tattoos and persistent social stigmas, especially in work environments. It places tattoos in the perspective of Western society and the industry’s emphasis on the appearance of employees. This provides insight into two main questions: first, how tattoo views affect hiring procedures; and second, how society culture affects tattooed workers’ employability. It aims to find out more about hiring discrimination, obstacles to career advancement, and customers relationships. To understand identity, appearance, and the dynamics of the workplace in contemporary society.
