19 Tattoos To Match Your Career, The One For Photographers Is So Clever.

Most professions today are not tattoo friendly, especially corporate ones. However, that doesn't mean you still can't ink whatever you want onto your body! You just have to keep in mind the placement of the tattoo — make sure it's located somewhere not exposed and can easily be covered by clothing. With that said, ironically as it is, a lot of people like to get tattoos dedicated to their careers (even if the profession doesn't allow it).

A lot of people are passionate about their career, so what better way to show that passion than with a forever lasting tattoo? You can be in the field of the arts, science, anything — there's most likely some type of tattoo you can get to represent it.

Here's a list of some profession related tattoos to help you get started.

#1. Architect

Architects design and bring life to the buildings we see everyday. They build cities. What better tattoo to represent this profession than a landscape of a city?

#2. Writer

You could be a novel writer, magazine writer, freelance writer, anything. Whatever it is, you love to write. It comes easy to you. Getting a tattoo could be something as simple as quotation marks, a pen, or a pencil to something a little less subtle like a pile of books or a typewriter.


#3. Chef

Maybe you're the head chef of the kitchen, or a cook in a restaurant, whatever it is -- you're passionate about the food you create and put on a plate. You can get something simple like cooking utensils or a chef's hat and apron.

#4. Photographer

Photography can be your main career or your hobby. You can either make your main income from it or some side hustle. Either way, you love taking photos. An obvious tattoo for this one is a camera but you could also get creative with images of film strips or aperture.


#5. Doctor, Nurse

A very subtle and simple tattoo for any doctor, nurse, or person in the medical field. You could also get a heart beat.
