Just wondering if a tattoo completely hidden from the public eye (on upper arm) would affect someone trying to get hired on with a major US airline?

Any questions on applications about any tattoos?

Thanks.

No, not a problem. The only way they would even see it is at the company medical, which i don't know if most companies even do that anymore and if so i don't think anyone would care. I have never seen a question about tattoos on any application. If i were you, as long as it is hidden, i wouldn't think anymore about it.

Gen Lee has a big, cursive "L" tattooed right on his forehead, and he still got hired at the "Big D."

Every time I go to the Doc I see all these tattoed and pierced people standing in line for medical care. It makes me crazy that they are filling out forms for Govt subsidized care while they are covered in hundreds of dollars worth of ink....""Go figure"

Short Version:

Moved from the northeast to the sticks (Oklahoma) to go to college. College roomates thought I needed to be branded with a little country in my blood. Not sure why I ever agreed. A little faded, but it's still there behind the bushes...:0

Yes, alchohol was involved.

Wife thinks my tractors sexy, but thinks it needs to spend more time in the yard rather than on the couch.:laugh:

If they see it you're most likely toast. If hired thay may also have a policy that all tattoos must be hidden from the public.

If that pissed you off, put this in your pipe and toke it.

These same clowns most likely collect other welfare, like unemployment bennies (like me:crying: ).

You are drug tested continually, and you work hard, but have reduced freedom of choice.

They don't do anything productive, and are free to spend your coerced donations on anything at all, to include recreational consumables of all types.

I hope it makes you so crazy that it impacts my seniority in a positive way....because you're senior to me, and with no new hires in 2009....well, you understand.

Seriously, if you've written, called and visited your congressman, and your 2 senators on this issue, then you have done all that you possibly can.
