I have decided, I am going to do what I always wanted - October 2nd 2010, 12:37 AM

And that is, being a teacher.
Yes, I have tattoos. But guess what?
they don't accpet my one visable one,
they are going to be missing out.
Yes, I will cover it up at all time possible,
but, if they say they wont hire me for that reason,
they are missing out.


I am following my dreams


Jennifer Marie
"learn how to apologize, learn how to say
'i love you' to someone other than your cat
and mean it, learn how to express yourself,
learn how to smile a "fuck you"
regardless of the outdated traditions,
the talentless critics or what is fashionable or give up."

That's great! You shouldn't let anything stop you from achieving your dream! You're right, if they don't hire you because of your tattoo, they're missing out!

I've had a few teachers with tatoos, at least three whom I can think of immediately... it shouldn't be a problem! Congrats for following your dream! :-)

If you cover up the tattoo at your interview it shouldn't be an issue. You can always cover tats with band aids regardless of where they are, so even if they tell you to cover it it's really a quite minor thing.

Depending on the school, they might allow you to have tattoos.
I have 2 teachers that have visible tattoos on their wrists.
It's great that you're going for what you want <3

this is a great thing to act on im glad your going for it everyone should follow their dreams! you can do anything you set your mind to!!


The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.
It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.
How much you can take, and keep moving forward.
PM me if you need to talk about ANYTHING.

They can't stop you from being a teacher unless it's an offensive tattoo, if they do get them for discrimination ¨.¨

But good luck following your dreams =D

A tattoo should not be judged over the knowledge and expertise you will bring forward to the school and its student. Best of luck. Those fools are certainly short-sighted.


To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the approbation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To give of one's self; To leave the world a bit better...; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - This is to have succeeded. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Good luck with your goal, I'm sure your determination will get you what you want and if they don't allow you be a teacher because of your tattoos then it's their loss and I'm sure someone else will happily take you on regardless of tattoos or not! x

My teacher always said: no matter where you go and what you chose, if you really want to, you WILL be the best, and the chosen one.

btw im not sure about where you live
But in Portugal (and the rest of europe i presume) when you you sue the school for discrimination (the fact of you having tattoos) you win 99% of the times and get your job

Good luck!
