Hi, Just needed someone's opinion on visible tatoos, piercings, etc. in the legal field.
1) Does anyone know any attorneys liks this?
2) Do you think it will definitely be detrimental to someone's legal career?

Lots of attorneys have body art, but few show it.
I think it's still a general rule that in business and conservative occupations it's better not to have a visible tattoo. Most of the people I know who have tattoos have them in places that can be covered easily by clothing.

Is the body art, say, a gavel?  Perhaps a tattoo of a briefcase?  If so, I believe they would be appreciated.

If not, is the body art sexy?  Judges appreciate sexy.

Generally discouraged, however, "PAY" tattooed on your middle finger is acceptable.
