With warm summer days around the corner and employees breaking out the short sleeve shirts and, in some cases, tank tops, sandals and flip flops and inevitably showing more skin, employers may need to start thinking about implementing a summer dress code policy. But what happens when you have to deal with the summertime exposure of tattoos and body piercings?
Tattoos and Body Piercings
A recent study by the Pew Research Center shows that 36% of individuals age 18 to 25 have at least one tattoo, and between ages 25 and 40, the number actually goes up to 40%.
While tattoos and body piercings are generally not visible during the winter months when employees are covered up with jackets, sweaters, long sleeves and pants, summer is quite a different story.
