Margate resident Will Boothby sits with artist J.R. Gesuelli, of Atlantic City, on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012, at House of Ink in Atlantic City. The perceptions of tattoos in the workplace are changing, but those doing the hiring still are less accepting than their younger co-workers.
House of Ink owner George Patsaros, of Galloway Township, talks about perceptions of tattoos in the workplace Wednesday at his shop in Atlantic City. 'We tell them to think about it. If they really insist on getting it (in a highly visible area), we definitely give them some background — it will be hard to get a job with something on their hands or neck,' he said.
