Ask yourselves if you'd rather look cool or have a career. I've made summer time sales calls in Florida with long sleeves. Sound fun? Might as well pierce your lip or eyebrow while you're at it, you'll get judged just the same.
All things being equal, the squeaky clean guy with no ink is always, always, always in a better position to get hired.
Remember, I LIVE this. Don't do it!

Why not just wait until after you get hire? It can/will do two things for you, 1) may help you get a job by not having one yet. 2) You will be slightly older and my decide you don't want "that tattoo". best of luck to you.Stay Safe
