  • What did you do at your old job? What kind of job are you looking for? What are you wearing to job interviews? Make sure that you really cover up when you go to an interview. If necessary, buy the tattoo cover up make up.

  • Get the tat makeup, and try to look at the people that work at places you regularly go. If they see you all the time, then they know you're an OK person...plus if you see other people with tats, you know they're open to the idea of tats on their employees!

  • If you can try and wear clothing to cover up what you can, and use makeup on the rest--that may help in the interviewing process. I also have tattoos, but they can be covered easily. My husband has a few on his arm that show and he got a very good job--they looked beyond that and I know you will find an employer that will hire you and look past it. Another idea is try applying for a job that does not directly deal with customers in person, the company may not care as much then. Good luck!!

  • What about helping out at a tattoo place, like cleaning up and straightening the place up?
    Maybe they can use a receptionist.
    Or preparing the clients.

  • You could cook in any restaraunt where customers won't see you.
    Deliver newspapers
    Not sure where your tats are but you could wear long sleeves or cover them with your hair (or try the stuff VBruno found).

  • I'm not going to spam my company, If you want to PM me I can tell you more. I'm looking for someone looking to help others.
