When Virginia Lawyers Weekly published its Dress Code Survey results back in July, a resounding 89 percent of poll-takers shook their heads at showing off tattoos.
But a handful of University of Virginia law students recently dared to bare their ink for the student newspaper.
These future lawyers revealed the stories behind their tats, recalling how their parents reacted and offering advice to others who are thinking about going under the needle. A couple even speculated about how they would handle their confirmation hearing, should they one day be appointed to the Supreme Court.
It may be a far cry, but these students can at least rest easier when it comes time for their first law firm interviews. All tats in question are easily concealed by business attire.
