    I'm not moving to Orlando anytime soon, but I'm just curious because I know in the past you could not, but I was wondering if they have been lifted that rule since so many people now have them


    I have 5 tats in all, but the most visable ones are the ones on my wrists.

    You could always have tattoos if you work for Disney as long as they are completely covered up while on stage.

    Yes. We were stopped by a CM who was going on and on about DH's tattoo on his shoulder. When DH told him he got it done at Love Hate Tattoos (aka Miami Ink) you would have thought we told him Jesus did the tattoo. The CM went nuts and started showing DH all of his tattoos. He had a Mickey tattoo on his shoulder. I am pretty sure he said that all of his tattoos had to be covered. He wanted one on his neck but said that wouldn't fly with the "big man". The guy was a riot and we totally didn't expect him to be so.... outgoing (??).

    Yea they have to be covered either by your costume or the makeup that hides them.

    I wonder if WDW would let me have my small, white-inked JII retro symbol tattoo on display? :drevil:

    That settles it.

    I'm going to begin pushing my son into a career in dermatology, with a speciality in tattoo removal.

    I will never and would never have my tattoos removed, if any job I have is against my expression then its not a job I will be happy at.

    During your interview, they would ask you if you have any tattoos that would not be covered by a one-piece bathing suit (I'm a girl, not sure what they ask guys..and no, I wasn't interviewing to be a lifeguard). Mine was totally covered so they didn't ask me any more beyond that. However, one of my roomies (in the College Program) had tattoos on both wrists, and had a role that she had to wear long sleeves every day that had tight elastic below the wrists. It really depends on your manager as to how strict you have the adhere to the Disney Look anyway.

    So, I'm guessing that this tattoo would need to be covered in Attractions?

    It would need to be covered wherever you worked in Disney. Basically, you'd be relegated to wearing long sleeves year-round and probably a coverup under the long sleeves since it's so dark.

    My DD just interviewed for the DCP and one of the first questions they asked her was if she had any tattoos. If you do they have to be coved by a one piece swimsuit.

    I have a tattoo that's a bit larger than the one in the picture above on my ankle. I was honest with them in my interview and they placed me in a work location where the costume covered up the tattoo, so be honest with them! It's much easier to be honest at the risk of not being hired than to be hired and have a leader catch you and possibly term you! Whenever I would pick up shifts at other locations where the costume didn't cover my tattoo, I would use a Revlon Concealer Stick to cover the tattoo and powder and blush to conceal. I knew being a Theatre major would have some use. :p

    Personally, I only have one tattoo. Its watercolor Disney tattoo of Tinkerbell on the forearm from here http://inkprofy.com/disney-tattoos/ And at work it's not welcome, that's why I covered the tattoo a little with a tonal base.;)
