Tip of the Day : 03 May

Hide tattoos when working

Our tattoos can be part of our identity, but when they are very visible, they can be a concern to find work or not be accepted in the company for which we work.
First, to hide your tattoos, you can wear long sleeves and turtlenecks.
You can also use makeup. You must use a color much darker than your natural color and use powder in abundance.
To hide a tattoo on a temporary basis, there is also the possibility of wrapping the area with a bandage as if you were injured.
A solution in the longer term, if you really love your work, is to surgically remove your tattoo using laser. In this case, it is important to have it done by a qualified physician. However you should know that the cost is far from being negligible, especially if you have large surfaces to remove. Not to mention that it often takes several interventions for a tattoo to disappear completely.
