Singer, Annie. "Tattoos in the Workplace: The Research Forbes Was Too Lazy To Do."
The Huffington Post. TheHuffingtonPost.com, 26 Feb. 2016. Web. 12 Sept. 2016.
This article argues against other new reporters that use the same three sources. They also go back and forth on their views on tattoos. But this article has also done some more research that states 86% of young professionals believe that tattoos and piercing do not reduce the chance of getting jobs because it is more based on attire. It is also said that heavily tattooed individuals believe that they relate to younger coworkers. But there is still a stigma on visible tattoos looking unprofessional and “dirty”. There is a progression to acceptance of tattoos but It is a slow process. There are some people that believe for first impressions they should cover their tattoos. But getting tattoos in non visible places is the easiest way to stop discrimination.
This article is to prove there is still a stigma even though a lot of people have tattoos.
Larter, By David B, and By Faram Mark D. "Navy just approved military's best tattoo
rules | Navy Times." Navy Times. N.p., 31 Mar. 2016. Web. 27 Sept. 2016.
Sailors will be allowed to have neck tattoos, sleeves and even markings behind their ears under the new policy, the most lenient of any military service. The new rules, announced Thursday and taking effect April 30, will allow sailors to have multiple or large tattoos below the elbow or knee, including the wrists and hands, effectively allowing sleeve tattoos that can be seen even while wearing short sleeve uniforms. Have one tattoo on their neck, which includes behind the ear, and it may not exceed 1 inch in length or height in either or both directions. Sailors with visible tattoos will now be eligible for recruiting duty or leading recruits at boot camp in Great Lakes, Illinois. These tough assignments often give sailors a leg up to make rank.
I can use this information to show that even the military is lightening up on their rules about tattooing. If the military with such strict rules can change their rules then maybe other places will too.
Lineberry, Cate. "Tattoos." Smithsonian Magazine. Smithsonian, 1 Jan. 2007. Web. 31
This article is really cool, it is explaining tattoos in ancient times. So it goes on to explain the tattoos that they have found on really old corpses. The earliest tattoo was from 2000 B.C. well that is the oldest evidence they have. They found that tattoos seemed to be therapeutic due to the placement and shape of the tattoos. They were small dots around areas with high stress. There is also evidence that in Egyptian practice it was mostly women that got tattoos because they believed it would give them protection and help during childbirth.
I am not entirely sure if this information would be accurate any more because they might have been able to find more evidence as well as new facts about these ancient tattoos. The objective of this article is to just inform readers about how old tattoos really are.
I believe this article is really interesting and could be really helpful to explain to people how tattoos have been around for a very long time. That tattoos are not just something that are just a new random trend for rebellious teenagers. This helps my argument with that tattoos should be more accepted.
Reporter, By The Siberian Times. "Siberian Princess Reveals Her 2,500 Year Old
Tattoos." RSS. N.p., 14 Aug. 2012. Web. 01 Nov. 2016.
The ancient mummy of a mysterious young woman, known as the Ukok Princess. They are all believed to be Pazyryk people - a nomadic people described in the 5th century BC by the Greek historian Herodotus - and the colorful body artwork is seen as the best preserved and most elaborate ancient tattoos anywhere in the world. The remains of the immaculately dressed 'princess', aged around 25 and preserved for several millennial in the Siberian permafrost, a natural freezer, were discovered in 1993 by Novosibirsk scientist Natalia Polosmak during an archaeological expedition. The tattoos on the left shoulder of the 'princess' show a fantastical mythological animal: a deer with a griffon's beak and a Capricorn's antlers. The antlers are decorated with the heads of griffons. And the same griffon's head is shown on the back of the animal. All animals are shown with the lower parts of their bodies turned inside out. There is also a winged snow leopard, a fish and fast-running argali. All of the mummies found had a tattoo on their left shoulder so that may have been the first place to tattoo.
I really like this article because of the history in it, as well as the photos that come with the article. The pictures of the mummies as well as the drawing that show how detailed each tattoo is, are really cool. This article may be accurate but they also might have found more explanation for that tattoos as well.
Once again this is a really cool article to be able to explain to people that tattoos are really really old. Tattoos are a form of art and in ancient times they have even more meanings. So I believe this article is important to show people that.
Weber, Marissa. "A Guide on How and Where to Get a Vegan Tattoo -Vegaprocity."
Vegaprocity. N.p., 30 July 2015. Web. 07 Dec. 2016.
This article was about vegan tattooing such as vegan ink and how some people get vegan tattoos. This article was really interesting because i did not even know that it was a thing. I never really even thought about the fact that ink has animal products in it. I believe most people do not even realize it themselves. Veganism has become a really big thing recently (not that it wasn’t a thing before) but more people are becoming aware. So I think this article is really important to be shared with a lot of people.
I like this article because it was something I did not even know. It was something that is very unique and different. This article was written in July of 2015 so the information will probably be accurate but there might be some new things written about it.
This article was really interesting and informative but I do not think I would end up using it for my mastery just because it is kind of random. I just really thought it was interesting.
KAKOULAS, MARISA. "Needles and Sins Tattoo Blog." Needles and Sins Tattoo Blog. N.p., 25 Oct. 2016. Web. 28 Feb. 2017.
This blog talked about controversial topics dealing with tattoos in the workplace. One controversial issue created interesting debate among her fellow tattoo law nerds in this article: "Jury should see neo-Nazi tattoos in Las Vegas murder trial, judge rules." A bunch of media outlets covered the International Tattoo Convention Bucharest, which hosted top talent from across the globe, including this AP slideshow. Looking at how tattooing can be a healing art, the Seattle Times' "Leading tattoo artists help wounded Israelis with scars" is a good read about Artists 4 Israel's Healing Ink project that connected 11 international tattoo artists with Israelis "maimed by war and violence which left them with daily reminders of their ordeals -- either in the form of physical scars or deep emotional ones." Exploring tattoos as tributes and memorials, The Atlantic's "A Tattoo for the King" writes about how Thais are turning to tattoos to mark the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who passed on October 13th. Another recent piece in The Atlantic is also worth a read: "Watching Tattoos Go From Rebellious to Mainstream," in which our friend Michelle Myles of Daredevil Tattoo talks about how attitudes toward body art have changed over her 25-year career.
This blogger is really cool because she is a lawyer and has a lot of tattoos. It proves that you can have a professional job and be covered in art. She seems really passionate about tattoo art as she has a lot of posts on her blog.
Ma’at-Ra, Djehuty “Tattoos.” Youtube.com. 22 Dec. 2011. Web. 1 Mar. 2017.
This YouTube video is directed by a man who is voicing his opinion about tattoos. He believes that they are not the thing for him and that location has a lot to do with getting one. He feels that if you cannot hide the tattoo then it is not a great idea to get it. He knows that it is much harder to get a job if one is carelessly showing them off during an interview. He also believes that tattoos should have meaning to the individual and that most people who get a tattoo get it just for the look, not the meaning.
I used this video to pull out some key points that I would like to convey in my topic. I agree with him that some tattoos should be placed in an area where they can be covered. I brought in the opposing viewpoint and to explain that I do not hide mine because I do not want to. Body art should be significant to the individual and not just some random, spur of the moment, tattoo.
Adams, Josh. "Bodies of Change: A Comparative Analysis of Media Representations of
Body Modification Practices." Sociological Perspectives 52.1 (2009): 103-29.
Print. 3 Mar 2017
This article from the Pacific Sociological Review explores how the media presents and displays cosmetic surgery, tattooing and body piercings as methods of body modification. The article also explains how they are positively advertised as culture and consumer lifestyle options.. This article explores how the media negatively constructs a picture of piercings by describing piercings as problematic, infection prone and unhealthy. The author does say that tattoos are often seen as acts of deviance. The author also makes the point to say that the risks associated with piercings are exaggerated. The article also makes note to how gender plays a factor in the norm for expectations and appearance in media and culture.
The author of this article pulled information from seventy-two news papers discussing tattoos, piercings and body modification. Knowing that the author pulled a lot of sources gives me reason to believe that bias is very limited other than the the fact of knowing that the author addressed multiple sides of the practice of media’s influence on body modification. The author of this article has a B.S., with Honors in Sociology and minors in American Culture and Recording Industry Management from Middle Tennessee State University. The author also holds a M.A., in Sociology from Ohio State University and a Ph.D., in Sociology from Ohio State University. This leads to make me believe the author is a well-qualified source with all of his studies of society and culture.
Hennessey, Rachel. “Tattoos No Longer a Kiss Of Death In The Workplace.” Forbes:
Style & Design. Forbes Magazine, 27 February. 2013. Web. 3 March 2017.
In this article Rachel Hennessey explains the debate on whether tattoos are becoming more socially acceptable in the workplace. Taking the side that tattoos are more socially acceptable, she gives statistics and uses interviews to support her stance on the matter. Hennessey uses argument of policy because she says how companies tattoo policies are changing. Being a main contributor to Forbes in there style and design section she writes mostly about how tattoos are a major fad that is sweeping the millennial generation. Her use of statistics and interviews maker her article an easy read, while also giving credit to the opposing side and explaining their stance on the matter of tattoos in a professional work setting. As Hennessey writes she gives the readers a lot of statistics showing that tattoos are becoming more popular and by extension you see more people in the workplace with tattoos. Hennessy gives advice to those who do have tattoos, and encourages them to keep looking for jobs by giving facts that are in favor of tattooed people in the workplace..
This article is pretty dated but it was still very interesting to read.
Kang, Miliann, and Katherine Jones. "Why do People Get Tattoos?" Contexts 2007: 42-. ProQuest. Web. 21 Mar. 2017.
Kang and Jones talk about all the different reasons why people may get tattoos. It brings up a lot of questions about why and the stories that can come from them. They allow you to see that just because people have tattoos does not make them a bad person. People are always quick to assume the worst when it comes to a questionable person with tattoos, but they writers prove with statistical data that gangs and delinquents do not correlate with tattoos. It is also explained that certain cultures view tattoos differently and in certain cultures not having tattoos is looked down upon. This document was found on East Carolina's database system, so it is creditable. Miliann Kang one of the writers is also a professor at University of Massachusetts Amherst, and is very knowledgeable in gender and sexuality. Katherine Jones is a professor and is also a credible source.

This document goes into serious detail about the several mechanisms of tattoo removal. It tells how painful it can be as well as the side effects that come along with tattoo removal. The writers do not hold back when telling what each entails, so people seeking tattoo removal know what they are getting into. There are also pictures included, either to prepare, or scare the public of what tattoo removal can do. They want the public to be well informed of what tattoo removal is and the options that they have when choosing to remove their tattoos.

Hunter, Zack. Telephone interview. 20 Apr. 2017.
Why did you start tattooing?
I believed it was a good way to know people and help people express themselves.
What is something you don’t like about your job?
When people come in with a bad design or bad placement and even after I discuss it with them they still want it there.
What social media's do you use to promote yourself?
Snapchat, Facebook, and Instagram
What is the hardest part about tattooing?
Well once I lost my arm it became a challenge but one that I wanted to overcome.
I lost my right arm in a car accident. I then had to learn how to use my left instead. In physical therapy, I had to learn how to rewrite everything. Once they asked what was I going to do for a job now. I only knew how to do one thing, tattooing. So I had to learn how to tattoo all over again but with my non-dominate hand. One of the nurses took a photo of the first thing I drew and then the last thing i drew before I left. The difference was amazing. And now I am here.
