I want to get my grandmothers (may she R.I.P) first name tattooed on the inside of my middle finger on my left hand -- not the top part of the finger and not palm side--. I would like to do a small script font in black covering roughly the first knuckle maybe a little past it. I always loved how finger tattoos looked and wanted to get my future childrens initials on my ring finger. My personal take on this is that it's not noticable unless I'm doing certain things with my hands, I have minimal contact with clients at work and I do wear rings ( in case of a situation where it must be covered).
My question to you : Do you think this is work appropriate? I test drove the design at work ( I work in Banking) and showed it to one of my co-workers who reacted by saying " what if you get fired for it?." I'm going to let this soak in for a week before making my final decision but would like to hear some feed back. T.I.A.
If you work in a conservative industry it seems like it might cause some problems. Even if it doesn't get you fired it could preclude you from getting promoted in the future if someone doesn't think it's appropriate.
I agree with Lily. You use your hands everyday and it is something that people with notice. While I don't think it would look bad, I don't think it will be appropriate for your work enviroment. I would wait it out or if you wouldn't mind changing the location, do that.
