no one cares about tattoos as long as they are 'normal' and not associated with hate or extremist groups.

 

as far as working here with them, most places dont care, but most also prefer if you keep them covered. depends on what you do, where you work, and the area you live in

Ty.  I was hearing some sayin' that most of the doctors like here in phi that they don't allow for having a tattoo.  My tattoo is covered so i feel relieved.  Thank you anyway.

Even if you tattoo is covered you'd have to reveal that you have it.  Getting tattoos in unsanitary shops or manners can lead to diseases like HIV or Hep C.  

 

However they dont care about tattoos that aren't gang or hate crime.

As long as you can cover it up a job cannot deny you for having tattoos.

In the Philippines they do look at the tattoos very closely for any gang affiliations.  People with a lot of tats have a tougher time with medical since they look closer at drug use and potential crime affiliations.  I have never heard of a denial due to tats though.  The doctors do ask if the beneficiary has tattoos and does look at them.  There are no problems unless they are gang, drug or crime related.  It is about the sanitation of the shop so lots of tats may bring on extra scrutiny and possibly extra blood tests.

 

Jobs here prefer that most are covered.  Tats are OK but companies see you as a representative of their brand.  I know great people with face tattoos (stupid kids) who can't find a decent job even though they are more than qualified.  They will be washing dishes forever because of one bad decision.

Hello,  just wanna ask if some of doctors for medical  didn't approve for having tattoo . And just wanna know that if you have tattoos you can't work abroad like in the US?  TIA.  

The USA is not the Philippines and most jobs do not care at all about tattoos at all. The vast majority of jobs here in the USA DO NOT require you to get a physical or strip down to look if someone has a tattoo or not. So you will be fine dw.

They absolutely can. I work here at Universal Orlando and my friends work at Walt Disney--both companies do NOT let their employees have VISIBLE (arms, legs, face, etc) tattoos. It's grounds for terminations and we CANNOT cover it up with make up either.

I just said they cannot deny you if you can cover it up? Visible tattoos cannot be covered... obviously..  and i meant with clothes not make up.  Not sure why you assumed I meant makeup vs clothing?  But I meant clothing.   🤨

This is totally company specific.  Disney has always had very very strict restrictions and only recently started loosening some of them (probably due to lawsuits).    My company, a Fortune 100 corp, would frown upon visible tattoos that cannot be covered by clothing though it's not specifically excluded.  Dress/appearance code varies by division, location, customer facing or not and probably most importantly are the tattoos depicting something offensive (i.e. hate symbols).  I've hired one guy that had some tattoos on his hands but my husband's division is customer facing so they wouldn't do it.
