I once saw a Tattoo on the backside of a BMed flight attendant back at the Marriot in Tbilisi? Female I hasten to add... Does that count?

All the unseasonably warm weather in the UK has resulted in flight crew walking around airports without jackets lately. I was behind a BA SFO at LHR just out of T5 crew report recently whose 'sweetheart' tattoo on his right shoulder blade was clearly visible through his uniform shirt. Used to know a guy who had 'Born to fly' emblazoned across his shoulders contained by a huge pair of angel wings - think he ended up at RYR and again, probably not well concealed by a thin white shirt. Also know some EK guys that have discreet, small tats on upper arms although personally not my cup of tea. Did that tweety-pie hostie ever work for bmi btw?

She did. BMed, BMI then BA. Blonde, not very tall, lived very close to LHR.

There are QR pilots with tattoos. As far as I know, CC are not allowed to have any tattoos, visible in uniform or not. Different treatment.

I think getting a tattoo is a personal choice.

With that said, some professions have rules regarding visible tattoos, so there is another choice to make:

Visible tattoo vs. possible career.

Or get the best of both worlds: Get a tattoo where it can't be seen even with short sleeves and enjoy a career you want.

Why bother getting a tattoo when you can buy very realistic fake arm sleeve tattoos very cheaply on line . They are nylon and look super real . If you really want to look a total idiot you can also buy clip a on man bun . They also stick onto a bald head . Good luck with your interview .

I've posted this before on a similar thread...

I used to fly with a first officer who had a smallish, visible and rather faded tattoo. He always regretted getting it and referred to it as '...my mark of stupidity'.

I still don't understand why this is in the Cabin Crew forum...?

If it had of been cabin crew posting something in the wrong forum, it would have been moved. So why can't this be moved to a pilot related forum?
