With about 45 million people in the US - or 14% of the population - sporting at least one tattoo, ink is finally becoming more accepted by society. However, stigma about tattoos still exists in the workplace.

Skinfo.com found that a whopping 37% of HR managers cite tattoos as the third-most-likely physical attribute to limit career potential, and there are currently no laws protecting people with tattoos from discrimination in the hiring process.

Skinfo.com also found that 43% of people feel that visible tattoos are inappropriate at work.
