There is going to come a time when society will have to decide what is an acceptable amount of tattoos... That said. Most employers don't care if you have them as long as they are not visable. Looks like he guy in this pic could work with long sleeves on... Good luck wih the suit. Better luck proving your case.

Tattoos are just NOT a part of our airline corporate culture or image we seek to promote.
Therefore we will not ask you to identify yourself, but at the break between the remainder of the introductory portion of our airline interview session, we will kindly ask those with tattoos to simply excuse theirselves.
Personally I do not want to work with thugs and those woman who have been tramp stamped, and do not want our passengers to feel threatened by these individuals regardless how nice or reformed from their prison tats they may be.
People who get tats should think about this when they are young, and I for one know teachers cover this in their curriculum, when the discuss work in their classes.

This part was not included in the interview. That is my opinion.

Perhaps I might add this individual may want to consider a position in which he may be more comfortable, such as ramp or cargo work where tattoos are a little NO pun intended common.

Tattoos also show poor judgement.
Airlines do not need and should not be forced to hire people with poor decision making skills.
