Checking The Tide: Do you Have Tattoos?

Do you have tattoos?
12 Yes, visible
18 Yes, not visible
25 Not yet
43 Never

As tattoos have become more popular among younger people, the trend hasn’t escaped the yachting industry. But it’s become standard to ask in a job interview or even offer on a CV if the applicant has visible tattoos.

While it seems that this is all the rage, I was curious to know just how prevalent tattoos are among crew, and if they did indeed present a problem when it came to landing a job in yachting.

So I asked Do you have tattoos? Of course, i had to follow that immediately with Are they visible?
I was surprised to learn that most of the crew I spoke to yesterday do not have tattoos, even the veterans, even the engineers. The crew with visible tattoos were all women.
