The Ink Link: Danilo Biccari

The Ink Link is an ongoing project at CN&CO that showcases tattoos in the workplace. One of the great things about a tattoo is it goes against the commonly-held viewpoint that “what you see is what you get”. There’s a misguided belief in certain quarters that in order to be a working professional, it is categorically *impossible* to have a tattoo… because how can someone with a tattoo be a professional? We are putting paid to that perception through the stories showcased in the Ink Link. This month we feature Danilo Biccari, an engineer turned traveller turned barber.

The Ink Link – At what age do tattoos become a thing?

It made me think, when does the (now diminishing) taboo about having tattoos become a thing? Grace certainly didn’t judge the young man on his choices of self expression, would she have had she been five? Would she have had she been 12? 15? 18? I wonder when societal norms and rules imprint themselves on us in our development as human beings.
