My Tattoo Blog Crush Gives Good Interview

Music + whiskey + tattoos= me

Not only do I think Marisa Kakoulas DiMattia runs a fantastic blog, Needles and Sins, but it turns out she's a bloody Mary connoisseur much like myself. Marisa, if you're ever in Chicago - you, me, bloody Marys on a patio for Sunday funday.

A few weeks ago, she gave a really fantastic interview to Adam Callen from BodyMod.org. Marisa is a heavily tattooed lawyer and has been sought out to answer questions regarding tattoos, discrimination and employment.


Interview with Marisa Kakoulas from BodyMod on Vimeo.


I'm not so sure how I feel about the dude's use of the term "retards" but the point he was getting at is solid. You can't just cry discrimination and make up some shit about your religion in order to just do whatever you want.

I think, if anything, we should be very happy to be living in the internet age. Many jobs don't require strict dress codesĀ  or the need to meet face-to-face with clients. Part of getting a job is adhering to the rules of your employer though - and you can't just sue every time someone makes you take out your lip ring (eventhough I cried about it once back in my days of waitressing).

Great interview, thanks for posting that video. Police departments all over the country are struggling with re-writing general orders and codes of conduct to cover tattoos and piercings.
