No way. This generations it's hard to find someone who hasn't got a tattoo. Aslong as it's not on ya face or somewhere retarded then nobody really cares. :] It's only the oldies that care about tattoos these days :]

POssibly. Just make sure you wear something that covers it. They won't cite that as a reason to disqualify you from further consideration, but it can certainly work against you. I'm sure it won't make a huge difference in their decision. If it's covered, they won't even know.

No, your experience and personality will!

As long as you can cover it and it isn't directly offensive, no problem. If you had a Swatzika on your face, there'd be a bigger problem.
