shits definitely different in cali from ny then....anyone with a visible tattoo, let alone a gang-related tattoo is putting his job-chances in jeopardy on wallstreet
Its the same everywhere.. Any office corporate job u cant have visible tattoos.. Meaning hands, neck, face.. Even if u were in a gang before and had gang related tattoos covered u still could get the job.. Unless u have been convicted of felonies but not all "gangsters" have records.. Like OJ said some people in gangs are actually smart but they dont really have the great of an option when they are young so they go that way... Reason the dude he knows, got a job as an RN is because he prolly told them his story, was smart got a good education and wanted to go int he medical field.. And they most likely hired em because if some needs help in a hospital they arent going look and be "oh no he has tattoos all over his body, i want someone else" reason the people hiring prolly could careless as long as he is doing his job right..
Now in the corp. world its different cause u are dealing with all types of people and to them u have to look clean cut.. Its al about the first impression here.. Even though there is people who are high up who are heavily tattooed, they just cover it up very well.. So they dont want u to have tattoos showing and especially no gang related tattoos because they would be afraid of how someone will judge u just by your look alone and really could effect the company for whatever is they are dealing with.. And this is everywhere in the US..
