Do you love tattoos and already have some of your body parts inked, or you're thinking about getting yourself inked because you're cool like that?
Then, beware, because your chances of getting hired may be low, according to The Star Online
The news portal quoted a recently survey done by YouGov Omnibus, which revealed that Malaysian companies are skeptical about tattoos at workplace, with 37 per cent
having a negative impression of people with tattoos.
The survey results, compiled from 1,022 Malaysians, revealed that 58 per cent
of them would be less likely to hire someone with a tattoo, even if they were qualified for the position.
The survey further revealed that if you have a tattoo on your face, there's an 80 per cent
chance that you won't get that job you wanted.
This is followed by those with tattoos on the neck (69 per cent), hand (60 per cent) and arm (51 per cent).
However, those with tattoos on their body are not affected as much, as the tattoos are most likely covered by clothes.

Interestingly, the results also noted that 63 per cent think that tattoos need to be covered at work.
Despite that, 42 per cent of those who took the survey believe that tattoos should not impact a person’s employability.
