That falls into the discrimination category. You can't just ban shirts that say Fvck, you have to ban all graphic tshirts. The same applies to tattoos. All or none, so corporate goes for the 'none' rule.

Society today doesn't allow companies to single out one of many, or someone will scream the D word. It has to do with being butt-hurt, on both sides of the subject.

Nuh uh. We have company policy here (and just about every place I've worked) that states that no one can wear t-shirts with profanity, slurs, etc, etc. We all wear graphic t-shirts. But if one of us wore one that said "niggers suck" or "fvck you", we'd be asked to go home and change.

All companies discriminate. Making people with tattoos cover their tattoos is discriminatory. Not allowing people to wear shirts with text is discriminatory. Not hiring people without degrees is discriminatory. Businesses can be discriminatory, if they weren't... they'd hire anyone to do anything regardless of qualifications and never have dress codes. It's a matter of what kind of discrimination is allowable and what isn't.

I'm a water baby who has a strong respect and love for sharks. I wanted a design that included water in some way, and a shark but not some open mouth, chomping thing. Something more elegant to reflect their grace. I wanted something on the back of my neck, and the design of a shark going down the back of my neck appealed to me aesthetically as well for the placement of it.

There are rare cases that a tatoo might be a desirable thing to an employer. If a veteran has 'Semper Fi" or maybe a USMC emblem tattooed on his upper arm for example, people will sometimes tend to applaud that and NOT let it deter them so much.

True. I think at the end of the day it is what the tattoo is and where it is located. Military/police/firefighter tattoos I think are almost always acceptable.
