I have loads of tattoos, a full sleeve on my right arm. I'm also fully employed as a chef. Most people, at least the ones I know, are not "thugs" or "hipsters". We're just as hardworking and family-oriented as many of you are.
That said, I can't speak to what Apple tested making the watch but I would have to assume that at some point this might have been brought up but I don't know for certain. That said I'm certainly not going to blame Apple for this.
