In a video widely shared on Chinese social networks, a female director discovered two probationary employees with large tattoos along their arms and immediately announced their dismissal.

`You two are both hard-working and honest, but having tattoos leaves the impression that they are stubborn or disobedient,` the director said.

Although he announced his dismissal, the director said he could give the two employees another chance if they had their tattoos removed, at the company’s expense.

Two young men, 17 and 22 years old, in China were fired by their female director if they did not get their arm tattoos removed.

However, the story quickly created mixed reactions, especially from those who support tattoos as personal freedom.

`It’s completely discriminatory. How do tattoos show a person’s professionalism and experience?`;

In recent years, China has introduced many measures to restrict people from getting tattoos.

Not only China, tattooing is still one of the sensitive things in some Asian countries such as Korea, Japan or Vietnam.

The trend of tattoos is becoming more and more popular in the world, but prejudices about them have not yet been erased.

According to a study conducted at the Pew Research Center in 2016, 40% of Gen Y (born 1980-1996) have at least one tattoo but 70% of them admitted to having to hide their tattoos at work.

In addition to the old ideology, many companies today accept employees with tattoos, especially in the fight to retain workers after two years of the pandemic.

`Flexible changes in policies help employees confidently express their individuality, concentrate on their work, and management does not miss out on talented people,` Josh D’Amaro, president of Disney, wrote in an article.
