    Tattooing your employer name on your body is equal to tattooing your significant other's name on your body. The tattoo is permanent, the significant other (or employer) may not be.

    Think before you ink.

    Spot on. Maybe tat your spouse's name if it's your first time down the aisle. Depending on your age and where you get hitched there's around a 50% chance it'll still be valid by the time you get old. Now consider what percentage of new employees will be working for the same company after 30 years. Be surprised if it's more than 5%. Any employee who has such love and loyalty to their employer is an idiot...because it's nearly impossible a corporation has any such feelings for its employees.

    People often confuse corporation with multinational corporation and employer with multinational corporate CEO. My employer likes me, we talk all the time. Directly, and not over the phone or through texts. Sometimes we pass emails back an forth.

    Some people are their own CEO and have no other employees. How does that corporation feel about its employees? I bet it loves them and prays every day, if not often enough, that none of them ever gets hurt or sick, or dies.

    Tattoos and body piercings are absolutely repulsive to me. They are both a CHOICE. The "culture" these people claim to be a part of is as legit as the gamer "culture." They are only victims of their own stupidity. She's just going to have to live with it....IF it truly means that much to her. Suck it up Sally.

    Dang, Jamayla, chill a bit. Tattooing has been around for over 8,000 years. In one fell swoop, you dissed millions you have never met. I have my wedding date tattooed as a ring on my ring finger: I almost lost a finger to a ring, so I did that. Your use of "these people" shows you have little of a very fine character trait in us humans: empathy. Sure, people may end up wishing they hadn't. That is hardly a reason to condemn anyone who does as "stupid". I think you might be embarrassingly self-revealing here: that is, if you are not too s****d to have an honest reflection.

    Not knowing who the woman in the headline photo is, I thought this was going to be a story about how a tattoo can make your skin dried out and wrinkly.

    I can feel sympathy for ANYONE who loses their job in this economy, but we do not know (and may never know) the REASONS behind her departure. Maybe they were justified, maybe not, but I seriously doubt they had anything to do with her tattoo.

    Depends on the profession. I know many professions who frown upon them and many people who regret having them. In fact, the tattoo removal business has boomed in the last few years.

    Tat at your own risk.

    I don't hire anyone with tats that show with a short sleeved shirt or shorts. I think they look dirty and s=cheap and I want a better image projected.

    That's one point, here's another--

    In the military it's kinda like a right of passage getting a tattoo upon graduation from boot camp or advanced training. I at one time considered getting one denoting my service or special training I received. I noticed a number of "Lifer's" had tattoos that were difficult to depict that began to fade and the colors started to run with age. However, I reluctantly gave up that thought for a 5th of Jack Daniels....<wink>

    My dad had the "ace" tattoo for scoring perfect on the markmanship course in the 80's. He can relate for sure, also his company's insignia from when he was in the rangers. I always thought that getting tattoos were not very meaningful unless they symbolize something of great accomplishment or similar.

    I should have been drinking with you that night, got mine in Leesberg La, after graduating Basic at Ft Polk , got it covered up in Atlanta a few years back. it looked terrible after 30 years of sun and cuts

    I spent 24 years in the Navy. Every port of call that I visited, I looked in the parlors for a tattoo that would be something that was unique, personal, artistic, and most importantly, something I would be willing to wear for the rest of my life. I never found one.
    There is ONE tattoo I am considering putting on my upper arm:
    - Right Medication?
    - Right Dose?
    - Right Route?
    - Right Patient?
    - Right time?

    I have the black band of manhood on my left arm, and the gaul band of unity on my right arm (sword arm), symbolizing the two types of peoples in my ancestry: the Sioux and the Gallic tribe of the Nervii/atrebates.

    i have a single tat of a stylised drawing my wife mad of my two children dancing in front of the full moon. my kids will always be my kids, and hopefully the moon isn't going anywhere very soon. my next tat is going to be of an owl in full flight.

    well you might want to check out, the effects of the metallic oxides they use for tattoos. especially if they used arsenic, for the black.

    I have half sleeves that can be covered by a short sleeve shirt. Most my employees have tats. The only bearing they have is during the interview process when I expect applicants to look professional.

    I have had a tattoo since I was 17...I had it redone many years later. It is a rose & it's on a part of my body that can only be seen if I want to show it. Never put a tattoo on any part of your body that can't be hidden. A tat on the face, neck, or hands , can almost guarantee you will never be able to get a decent job. just Sayin'( ;

    Ridiculous statement that demonstrates an ignorance of the meaning of socialism, and also the histories of the NYT and Pravda.

    @PeteC
    I don't know, Pravda was the official newspaper of the Russian Communist party. The NYT is as an official newspaper of the Democratic party as we have, the White House gives them the stories they want printed and the NYT prints them. Seems like a pretty good comparison to me.

    She made it to the top.
    She enjoyed the job.
    She lived large in the big chair.

    Most don't get to sit there.

    She had a great time while it lasted.

    What is to regret?

    There are a lot of um-employed people out there that don't have her reverence package.
    They deserve much more sympathy for the sufferings of their un-employment than her.

    She will do just fine.

    Great attitude. More people should understand that this is the right way to look at it. NO ONE stays on top forever.

    If her ouster was related to the revelation that she had a tattoo(presumably one she had for YEARS), then that doesn't make any sense. A *one letter* tattoo is bad? And if the Times didn't know about it before, that means it's hidden. So where's the crime?

    She should have Tatted her fore head "STUPID" I don't have any, don't want any, oh wait,, maybe a Blue Fly with big Red eyes on my dick, heheheheheh

    LOL - My 'Tally Tat' would read, "Best you ever eat" when small.
    In it's excited state the reading continues with, "Dave's Catfish Emporium, Chattanooga, TN, The Best you ever eat, Ask for a little waitress named 'Taffy'".

    Of course that's 'internet size'. LOL

    Jill Abramson reportedly left the times because she wasn't being paid as much money, and her retirement wasn't as good as her predecessor, who was a man, remember folks the times are big on the whole equal pay thingy, we'll maybe not so much.

    This is the "political story" we get from the Editor-in-Chief? Finding out that a person may regret a tattoo later in life is not "news"; neither is a tattoo being evenly remotely related to getting or losing a job. I like and contribute to Politix, but it is time the editors raise the I.Q. level of their topics and "news" items. Considering the content, there is starting to be very little difference between an Entertainment Tonight site and POLITIX.......... All that is missing is Solange and Beyonce and the Kardashians.

    Tattoos say something about the people who have been through having them laid in. True some of them may be ridiculous, by my standards, but they still tell you something about the person.
    My first was my zodiac sign, done with needle, thread, and india ink.
    My other, a third is no longer visible, is an orobus rainbow dragon. The first was impulsive - I was 14. The dragon I thought long and hard about. My one regret about the dragon is I wish it was larger.
    THINKING ABOUT YOUR TATTOOS, before getting them, and what they will say about you.

    I'd like to know why so many people believe everyone else wants to know about their life? It's no different than posting your history or image on a social website. What is this fascination about wanting to display yourself? IMO, it's insecurity. It elates the inferior people when they believe they have hundreds of friends on facebook when the fact is, they don't know jack shit about most of them, if not all. Displaying a part of yourself ensures their ego they will be remembered somehow, someway.

    This is a "ME" society. More people think their "me" is important to tell the world and the other "me" people frankly don't give a shit.

    They don't frankly care about telling EVERYONE. Just the people who might like to know.
    A unity symbiotic is a nice way to get the message out. And some people who see it appreciate it.

    @DragonHawk1959

    IMO, those who want to know usually ask. It's no different than telling people about your religion when nobody wants to hear it. If they do, they ask.

    I've already said tats can be a good conversion starter. It gives a person an opening.
    Going up to a guy you haven't even met yet and asking a personal question can get you punching out. Complimenting his tattoo is likely to be met with a friendly response.
