Courtney Coleman, 30, of Maumelle works as a recruitment manager for the office of a large national company. The fresh-faced brunette has three tattoos and is working to have one of them removed — the 1 1/2-inch-wide sun, radiating out via black ink, on the top of her foot, Linda S. Caillouet writes in Tuesday’s Style section.
“Yeah, I got it when I was 19, about 10 years ago when it [getting tattoos] was big but I’m kind of over it now,” Coleman says.
She doesn’t want the ink to be a black mark on her, professionally or personally.
“I want to be taken seriously,” she says. “And when you’ve got a giant tattoo on your foot, that’s hard.”
Coleman is one of a growing number of thirtysomethings who, back in their late teens and early 20s, were swept up and covered up in the growing popularity of tattoos.
