I'm worried about my tattoo in corporate America, should I be?

I just got a job at State Farm Insurance. No, I will not be in sales but worried what my coworkers and management will think. I'll wear long sleeves to work but it will inevitably be exposed outside in the community (city of 100,000). I have a 7" crucifix on my forearm, and of course prominent without long sleeves. Could this be a job breaker for me?

I don't think you should worry about it. I have seen people with tats in corporate america and management and co-workers don't think twice about it no matter what the subject matter of the tattoo. I would say don't stress over it. :)

what u wear and show off outside of work is ya business.. and a crucifix isn't somethng bad.. u are expression your religion as artwork on ya body.. but it definitely is a good idea to just cover it up at work. and don't think twice about it.
