And we can't do that if we are all inked up? Having a tattoo or facial hair somehow makes us less serious about the food we serve?We're not painting pictures, were serving people food that could get them seriously ill or even kill them if not served properly .
My Mom doesn't have a tattoo but my daughter's Mom does (my wife) and I know many, many Moms that do. That is just an asinine, outdated point nowadays with tattoos being so commonplace.You say don't serve it if you wouldn't serve it to your mom; or don't say it if you wouldn't say it in front of your mom or guests in a fine dining room....
Does your mom have tattoos?? I don't think so.
Another outdated point. I've seen doctors, dentists, lawyers, etc. with tattoos. Most of them wear their tattoos where they are covered by long sleeves and long pants but when in short sleeves and shorts they are fully exposed. It also seems to be generational with older professionals not sporting ink while younger ones showing off their pieces. Since chefs often wear short sleeves and/or chef jackets with the sleeves rolled up their ink is visible.Do you see tattoos in professional environments? No.
Does your local dentist or Doctor have tattoos? Probably not.
Not often seen...yet, but seeing as many of our politicians are ex military there is a very good chance that they are sporting ink as the vast majority of veterans sport 1 or more tattoos. It won't be long before we see high ranking politicians proudly displaying their ink.Do you see tattoos in politics? No. Do we elect Presidents with tattoos? No. So if we want respect, maybe we should start treating ourselves with respect and stop permanently inking our skin.
