How long before we start seeing tattoos on Disney CM's?

I would have to check my hand book to confirm this but I believe the the words Disney uses to describe beards and tattoos is " intimidating look"..... just my 2 cents.

I was encouraged by the Army to get a "trunk tattoo" so they could better identify bodies if we were blown up. But you're right, that was terribly short sighted when we should have been thinking about how attractive or unattractive to men it would make us :hilarious::hilarious:

I'm not really offended... I just found your post humorous. <--- see what i did there? :hilarious::hilarious:
Meh, to each their own. A tattoo is not a feminine look. Just like piercings on a man are not a masculine look. The opposite can be true. There are women who have piercings that look ridiculous and men that don't look good with tattoos either. In my opinion, it isn't a terribly sound decision, and I am guessing Disney not only believes in the image they are to uphold but also whether someone who chose to get a tattoo has the best decision making skills. I am just taking a guess it boils down to this with them, as with many employers. Would you think a person with a tear drop tattoo is the sharpest whip in the world?

I think they get pretty happy when a potential employee manages to pass the background check. I don’t think they really have the luxury of judging someone’s decision making ability based on their tattoos.

Key words: "In my opinion". Anything beyond that is conjecture, not fact. Why do you feel the need to jump to the example of "a person with a tear drop tattoo"?

Because specifically a tear drop tattoo is associated with prison, and a person that voluntarily puts that on their face didn't make a sound decision. We aren't talking about a birthmark here, we are talking about a conscience decision to do this for whatever reason. No, I'd think twice about hiring someone like that, and evidently so does Disney.

Not only that but here in the UK it means the prisoner killed somebody and is doing time for murder. I would think twice about hiring somebody more for that reason than the fact they've tattoo'd their face to be honest.

(As a disclaimer if we have any reformed murderers on here, I'm all for forgiveness but would maybe question you further before employing you. Call me old fashioned if you want, but it seems fair to me. Just don't kill me for my opinions .................................. please)

To be fair, I think it still says "Judge" but at the same time all I have to ask is..............why?
I think the tattoo artist did that on purpose... that font probably doesn't have that long of a swash on the upper case J, so the person who inked that was (in my opinion) sending a message.

That message being "don't make life difficult for your tattoo artist."

I have a Jedi Stitch Tattoo. Something tells me if I was to ever work for Disney Corp, I doubt I would have a costume that would let that tattoo be visible. I bet I would have elbow long sleeves if not long sleeve to make sure it was covered, so I would say no on the Tattoos.

Yeah tattoos are allowed they just have to be covered. Of course not many people want to wear long sleeves in the heat and humidity of a FL summer. I knew of one lady who had one on her upper neck, she had to wear a turtleneck. Don’t think she stayed for too long.
