Dr. Jen Mundt of Delete Tattoo Removal in Phoenix said she sees about 20 to 22 people a day looking to remove their tattoos for prospective jobs.
“The trend I’ve noticed the most is usually college students who have finished their education, and it’s a mistake they made a few years ago, and they’re looking for a job,” Mundt told ABC News. “And, people who have lost their jobs and are trying to get back into the workforce and gain an edge.”
Mundt said her clients are primarily concerned with tattoos that are located on the wrist and neck.

“A lot of businesses have a policy that does not allow tattoos that are visible,” she said. “Sometimes you can’t have them at all.”
