    No. I see the point, especially with the cultural heritage of some societies, but I don't think so. Perhaps I can be convinced.

    Some Gold Coast nightclubs now ban visible ink

    Given that this is Bogan Central, there must be something to it

    You should be able to discriminate, but only in extreme situations. I can appreciate a nice sleeve, or something subtle, and have a tattoo myself, but if you get your face or neck tattoo'd, or are happy walking around with a massive visible "tribal" piece, you deserve to get discriminated against, as you look like a ****.

    Yeah, I am largely the same. If an employer does not want somebody with a tattoo representing their organisation or whatever then that is their prerogative as far as I can see.

    I don't see the consistency in your logic here. You say you think people with tribal tattoos look like ****s, but what about people who think those with sleeve tattoos look like ****s?

    What if an employer does not want a female representing their organisation? A non-white? A non-heterosexual? A Muslim? A communist? Someone who is overweight or wears glasses?

    What makes a tattoo different to any of the things you can't discriminate based upon? Especially in the case of a small butterfly or something equally unimportant?

    You choose to ink a butterfly into your skin, you don't choose to be female, black or gay.

    I guess there is no consistency, just my dislike for tribal, but my point definitely stands in regards to face/neck tattoos.

    Come on, discriminating on the basis of race or sexuality is completely different to doing so on the basis of whether or not somebody has a tattoo, and you know it.

    Fair enough I guess. I believe most employers, who do not allow tattoos, only deploy a no visible tattoos rule. So that would fit in with what you are proposing.

    Trying to enforce a rule whereby someone attempted to ban their employees from having any tattoos whatsoever would undoubtedly be unlawful.

    Dan only posed the question because you didn't answer it properly and you know it

    I should have thought the fact that no questions had yet been asked of me would provide ample explanation as to why I had not answered any.

    Indeed. Jade Dernbach for instance, should definitely be discriminated against.

    Must admit it is off putting for some reason when you are getting fresh food from a shop and you can see loads of tattoos on display be it hands, arms or neck.

    Does that mean I live in the dark ages? Maybe but then again I have never felt the need to get a tattoo as I think they look crap.
