For all you tattoo bashers out there.
Tattoos don’t make the character. Learn people. Learn.
The previous generations really did a number on us when it comes to tattoos. They made us believe that tattoos are unprofessional and unsightly, when, really, tattoos and body art have existed through pretty much the entirety of human history. Tattoos, unless they are of an offensive nature, are not any more unprofessional than make-up, or jewelry, etc.
I remember one time I was asked by a friend who is a manager if she should hire a guy with tattoos. My first question to her was about how qualified the guy was for the position, and she explained he was very qualified.
Her: “If you went to a store to buy something, would it bother you if the person helping you had tattoos?”
Me: “As long as he does his job properly and helps me when I need it, he could be wearing a Halloween costume for all I care.”
bless this post.
I’m a senior manager at a fortune 300 company and I’m almost fully sleeved and have highly visible tattoos on my chest, legs, etc. I’ve been getting tattooed since I was 17 and have never once been unemployed or on welfare.
Fuck you if you think people with lots of ink can’t have high paying, professional jobs. You’re ignorant and you’re wrong.
Sorry to make this post longer, but Anonymous needs to grow up. I’ve been gainfully employed the entire time I’ve been tattooed, and most people with tattoos are smart enough to know the consequences of being so.
Yeah, having your face/neck or hands tattooed may affect your ability to get some work, but everything else is negotiable for most employers. If you excel at what you do, it won’t matter at all. I’ve known VERY tattooed people who work in math, nuclear physics, movies/tv, high schools, vet clinics, tech support, etc etc. Remember that a lot can be hidden under a long-sleeved button up shirt and slacks, Anonymous.
My favorite band ever is doing a 20th Anniversary tour with a lot of bands! Take a look at the shows below!
Great @allisonweiss review in the new issue of alt press out next week! #nosleeprecords
Nice review Ms. Annie Z.
I’ve been waiting for this record to come out for a long long time, especially after to recording his last Pink Couch Session. The recorded version of Mr. Mystery is even better than the already amazing live version.
“Symptoms” was recorded in an attic in Columbus, OH, in 2012. The songs reflect a more intimate and meditated approach for songwriter, Matt Scheuermann.
If you’ve been loving the quiet introspection of Waxahatchee’s latest album or Archipelago’s Good As Gone, give “Symptoms” a listen.
You can also download Matt’s previous album at this very site! Download“Rhetoric” now!
Escapist Records is pleased to announce plans to release Upward, Not Northward, the debut 12” LP from Cleveland’s Harvey Pekar. Since forming in 2011, the five-piece hardcore band has been fueled by incessant determination and worth ethic, self-booking tours in support of their self-released Thirty Ghosts EP. Over the past two years Harvey Pekar have drawn increasing crowds with their energetic and impassioned performances alongside the likes of Defeater, A Wilhelm Scream, Cheap Girls, Such Gold, and Code Orange Kids, amongst others.
The band’s ethos mirrors that of their namesake, acclaimed and influential comic book writer Harvey Pekar, who described his work, saying:
“[It] is about staying alive. Getting a job, finding a mate, having a place to live, finding a creative outlet. Life is a war of attrition. You have to stay active on all fronts. It’s one thing after another.”
Significant parallels exist between Pekar’s approach and that of a touring band; an endless number of obstacles present themselves day in and day out. But rather than both admit defeat and give up, one must choose take those challenges head on and commit to the goals in mind. This conviction and sense of commitment permeates from the psyche of band.
Harvey Pekar will enter Brainchild Studios in Cleveland this week to begin recording, after which the band plans to tour substantially in support of the effort.
