Tattoos at work

Are there guidelines on tattoos for workplaces in Singapore?

Similar to hair color, there are no specific guidelines on tattoos for work in Singapore.

However, it is important to bear in mind that some employers may have dress code policies that prohibit visible tattoos in the workplace or require them to be covered up.

This is especially true for customer-facing roles where companies may want to project a certain image or brand.

If an employee has a tattoo or is considering getting a tattoo, it may be worth checking with the HR department first to see if there are any restrictions or guidelines that they need to be aware of.

As a general rule, it may be best to avoid tattoos in highly visible areas of the body if an employee is working in a customer-facing role.

Ultimately, it’s up to the individual employer to decide what is appropriate in their workplace.
