I am a woman with full sleeve tattoos done by world renowned artists. Visiting a particularly influential tattoo artist brings me to Switzerland twice a year, and I work in some sight seeing when I visit. However, while walking around as a tourist in the cities, I receive scathing glares from the local women, mostly. This day in Lausanne was especially a bummer. It is very hot out, and I am wearing a summer dress that isn't offensive, but my fully tattooed arms are uncovered. I see that Swiss people don't have many tattoos, but is it offensive to be myself and let my tattoos hang out, as I do at home in New York City?
