I am working for a degree in Teacher Education, actually pre-k through 3rd grade. I have always been interested in getting a small tattoo and was afraid I would not be as eligible for a job in a school. Do you or anyone you know have experience with this? This can be open to any professions, not just Teacher Education.
I am also working towards my degree in elementary education, and I have a tattoo. It is very small and easy to cover up. I just got it recently, and before I got it I did a little research. Knowing that I will be working with children and in a professional place I wanted to make sure it wouldn’t hurt my chances of getting a job. Most district policies that I came across allow tattoos as long as they aren’t visible. So before you get one think about where you want it and how easy it will be to hide it.
