Okay, this is total fluff, but I was curious about others' perceptions. One of my ears looks like this:
Basically, it ended up tattooed from wearing cheap earings as a teenager. I'm going to be interviewing for some painfully professional jobs in the next year or so, and I was wondering how bad you all think this looks. I don't like having my hair down, so covering it that way for interviews isn't a practical option. I sometimes wear earings to cover them, but it doesn't cover them completely and then I've got a bunch of earrings in....when I graduated we were advised to wear one pair of simple studs (or pearls, or whatever) for interviews...and that was only in '06.
Generally, I really don't care what others think, but in an interview, well, you are being judged, and if a tiny, weird looking tattoo gives an older person an uncomfortable "vibe", I don't want that to be the thing that makes or breaks the impression I make. I guess I could think about having them laser-removed, but I'm not sure about the cost, whether it would be worth it, etc.
So what do you all think? Totally overreacting? Be honest!
