    it's her business, not mine.

    I won't ask her.

    but if I was a betting man, I'd bet she doesn't.

    either way, she's my daughter and I love her!

    I once met a guy with a swastika on his forehead. Not a good look.

    I bet that's false.

    Maybe his daughter is a bit above your class level. Dick.

    Class doesn't have anything to do with it. One was a particularly pretty Jewish girl who had two little hearts on each side of her groin. Owned her own business, home, and had two master's degrees from a prestigious university.

    Sure. That's exactly what you were failing to convey.

    You could just apologize.

    Fellow HS teacher here, 20 years in public schools. Teaching is still one of those professions where the individual is judged by public perception: a supervisor (aka Principal or Superintendent) with a negative impression of visible tats (especially finger ones that spell something, often seen in movies worn by shady characters with criminal history) still can make a teacher's life miserable, and effectively force them into early retirement. Messing up with your schedule, giving you undesirable preps each and every year, moving your room (or making you a no-room teacher and making you travel from room to room every period), and not backing you up when a situation arises are just some of the ways they can make teachers' lives miserable.

    While not personally opposed to tats, I think it's a bad move. When you add there's personal stuff going on that's upsetting you, my suggestion is to just give it some time to cool off before you make a decision like getting a tat on your fingers where they are visible all the time.

    Had you asked about a tat on your chest or some other body area that stays covered (or easily covered), I would've said 'go for it'.

    Hope things get better, OP.

    I’ve seen some sleeve tattoos that were works of art. For some reason they get a pass from me. Hand, neck, and face tattoos, in general, look trashy.
    If you want a tattoo, get a tattoo. Just realize that people will judge you for them. Best to be able to cover them up.

    We tried but as soon as the needle hit him, he ripped up the artist and the guy swore he wouldn't ever tattoo a cat again.

    This is a sea story that caused some international friction with the Brits. Sea stories always start with "now this is no sh!t…" so you know it's a sea story. We were in-port in Valetta, Malta in September 1969 when the US Ambassador called the CO. He got a call from the Brit consulate about a situation that may have involved our crew. The Brits had a base there and our sailors would go out and party with them. They were always trading insignia and covers [hats] in drunken friendship booze-a-thons. It seems that after a tough evening slamming sambuca they all went off to a local tattoo parlor, pooled their money, and bought their latest Brit lifer buddy a tattoo.
    It was Old Glory waving on his chest, armpit to armpit and sternum to waist.
    The poor guy was in tears. Removing tattoos at the time consisted of taking thin football shaped slices and sewing the skin together and waiting a month or two for it to stretch and then doing it again. I don't know what happened to him, medically, but messages from the Pentagon over broadcast required me to offline decrypt so the gossips wouldn't gossip. They went to the CO, who then had the OPS officer take them to the US consulate. The culprits were never caught while we were there. .

    I told my children about tattoos and guys with earrings many moons ago.

    When my youngest daughter met her future brother-in-law, her first thoughts, as she relayed in her brides-maide's speech were; He has never been to sea, he's never been in the service, and he certainly has not been shipwrecked!"

    I have two that always remain covered and although I don't actually regret them, I certainly wish I never got them. Not sure if that will make sense to anyone.
