As anyone working in human resources careers can tell you, it's tough to get a job these days. While the economy is improving and job openings are becoming more prevalent, people are still looking for that extra "thing" that will get them chosen over other applicants. It is because of this drive to succeed that tattoo removal is on the rise amongst job seekers and new professionals.
“The trend I’ve noticed the most is usually college students who have finished their education, and it’s a mistake they made a few years ago, and they’re looking for a job,” said Dr. Jen Mundt of Deletes Tattoo Removal. “And, people who have lost their jobs and are trying to get back into the workforce and gain an edge.”
It's not always the unemployed that are looking to remove their body ink. Some companies don't allow visible tattoos or don't want to give promotions to people who the company believes don't have the right "look" for the face of their company. Some of these employees have chosen to go under the laser simply to better their career opportunities.
