Thats the part the most disturbs me. Forget that job, you didnt even have enough decency to tell me straight out? You couldn't even call me after and let me know that I was no longer being considered for employment? That would have been the respectable thing to do, and I think maybe that's why I feel so slighted

Just because its within legal bounds does not make it right in my personal opinion. In the courtroom of the US maybe so, but in the courtroom of Morals (which appears to be getting increasingly smaller and smaller) I would say no.
Morals, however, are overrated nowadays it seems. Or they may just be extinct.
Now before we all assume that I have satan, a naked lady, and a swastika tattooed on my hands, let me just tell you that is not that case.

You'd have as much chance as someone who sued their employer for not allowing them to turn up for work wearing nothing but a posing pouch.
Companies are quite rightly legally allowed to not employ someone because of tattoos that cannot be covered up.

I guess I don't understand. The OP has a swastika tattoo on a hand, and wonder why he didn't get hired? Ignorant ape got chided for overlooking something in the first post---well, I missed it too. How is that OK again?
With any tattoos, they can signify membership in a gang or hate group, and I can see where an employer wouldn't want to hire people who were bringing that culture and associated violence to work with them.
There's also a subculture component that goes with tattoos: substance abuse. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but in a lot of people's minds, a tattoo owner is more likely to be involved in partying. And generally, the partiers are a transient population, with absenteeism and legal issues as part of the lifestyle.
Not true in many cases, but a definite concern if you are hiring a person and taking them on as a liability.
Why does the army have a new policy forbidding visible tattoos?
Gangs. That's why.
