I will say at the outset that I think tattoo sleeves are in a very different category than the tiny tattoo somewhere noticeable (wrist, ankle) or the bigger tattoo somewhere generally hidden (lower back, shoulder blade).As someone with tattoo sleeves (or half-sleeves) (tattoo ballet sleeves? Products specially designed and endorsed by PW herself.
It has homeschooled/prairie skirt wearing/seventh grade girl written all over it. The mixer available to mere mortals (sinners) is just regular simple every day orange. I usually don’t care much for ‘celebrity cookwear’ because it seems like their names usually get put on the crappiest products around.
The PW mixer, available only to a select few Winners (solidifying their place in heaven), is Custom Orange. You know, the other day when I went to look at that ‘poke in the eye’ mixer on her blog, I could have sworn she said that the orange was a custom color that Kitchen Aid whipped up just for her. For example, when Paula Deen was first getting really big, Walmart stuck her name on some combination toaster/coffee maker/egg fryer thing that was just a piece of crap.
Thrive Global: What’s the first thing you do when you get out of bed? Being in my car is sometimes the only break from work and kids that I get in my day, and having a great tune on is often what gets me back on track. HA: Both of my daughters have crazy, wild, unruly hair, so I braid it every night before they go to bed. TG: Tell us about your relationship with your phone.

If it’s really important to you, ask about personal expression, the dress code, what kind of client interactions, and more — because the fit of the office is going to be key to a happy work environment for you.
Readers, what are your thoughts on tattoos in the workplace?I’m going to guess that even if the work of a conservative office appealed to you (e.g., a big firm that has a great art law or entertainment law division), the atmosphere of the office would grate on your nerves after a year or two.So I think your approach to jobs should be thus: If you’re going for a conservative job, consent to covering your arms for most of the time, ideally with a blazer.(You say they’re all “very tasteful,” so I’m assuming there’s nothing unsuitable for the office with your tattoos, such as nudity, foul language, etc.) In some jobs — where literally any day could be the first day you meet a new big client — this will effectively mean you have to cover your arms most of the time.On the plus side, a blazer looks professional with so many outfits and will effectively hide your tattoos, so you should be fine; in many ways, your tattoos will be easier to hide than the small wrist or ankle tattoos that some women get.HA: I feel burned out right now as I am packing my children’s suitcases.
