Life skills for the 21st Century

Rhebecca, who has a number of tattoos, told the BBC that her body art indicates she has qualities that could be beneficial to many employers.

"From the perspective of an employer that [getting a tattoo] takes a lot of planning, organisation, forward thinking and interaction.

"To me those are all things that employers would value." 

Rhebecca has convinced me that she does have something that some potential employers might value, although that thing is more likely to be her confident ability to make up bullshit on the spot without apparent embarrassment, rather than the frankly unimpressive level of logistical skill actually required to walk into a tattoo parlour and pay a tattoo artist to do what tattoo artists do for a living.

If she hasn't already put herself forward as a contestant on The Apprentice, it can only be a matter of time.
