Readers Question: What should I do about my tattoo?

Our question for today comes from Reuben, a college senior ramping up his final semester job search.
Dear Aunt Bonnie—
I am a business major and would like to work in banking, eventually commercial loans. I can pull off the neat and tidy look with one possible problem. A few years ago I got a tattoo of an eagle on my upper back. At the time I thought it was really cool. Sort of a ‘born to fly’ type of persona I wanted to express. But now I’m totally sick of it and find it comes up higher than a lot of my shirts, or at least the eagle’s head makes it past the t-shirt line. So, here’s my question, how will my potential employer react and will my tattoo nix my chances of being hired?

Dear Reuben-
You raise an excellent question. How do most employers respond to tattoos?
