While getting tattooed is one of the coolest things you can do with your body, but the army's recent ban on recruitment of people with body artwork has once again brought to fore, the desirability of having tattooed professionals in the workplace.
While army contends that having a tattoo increases the risk of contracting HIV and other infections among recruits, the HR department of corporate houses have some reservations of their own. Many corporate houses generally discourage the recruitment of tattooed persons into their fold because of the general impression that they won't be serious enough with their work.
