    Umm... the article states that 25% of Americans have some form of body art - that's maybe a few too many to call them all hipsters.

    While not having any body art myself, I would certainly steer clear of any employer that screens out all tatted people. That's the kind of irrational prejudice that could also mean anti-gay bias.

    I have some "body art". That said I'd say the "irrational prejudice" is really what the person doing the hiring is concerned with...
