A fascinating study. It raises many questions about discrimination and why some tattoos are regarded as positive and others as threatening, not simply because of the type of tattoo but where it is on the body. The book raises some really thought provoking points such as employers' perceptions of whether or not a tattoo will be a barrier to being able to carry out certain jobs.
