I had my AD yesterday and just wanted to post for those who want to apply/have assessments but are worried about their tattoos.

You have to fill in a sheet which has a body outline on them, where you mark where your tattoos are. Once you go in for your height/reach etc someone will go through that sheet with you and may ask to see some of the tattoos. I have a visible one on my wrist and was told I'd need to cover it and wasn't sent away and I informed the lady that I was having laser treatment at the moment.

If your tattoo is not completely gone by the time you get in you can always use the Dermacol foundation to cover it, it works great and is waterproof! Good luck to you and thanks for the info!

I thought about that too Joelle, at least it's covered completely then :)

Hi everyone,
I have a BA assessment day coming up, and I’m ready so many things about tattoos, and BA’s policy. Has the policy been relaxed slightly? I have tattoos on my arm and wrist, and I’m currently crew for another airline with the policy that my tattoo must not be visible and as a result I have to wear a long sleeved shirt. Will this be the same for BA or is it definitely a NO NO for tattoos on arm? I have seen BA a few with tattoos on arms when I’ve flown as a passenger. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

#131  Any success after tattoo removal?  Posted 15/07/2019 at 13:17
Hey everyone.

I am wondering if there is anyone out there who has had tattoo removal and has been successful in a job as cabin crew?

I have read lots of people saying they have been sent away because there is still a mark from the tattoo, so I'm really wanting to see if there are still any success stories out there after tattoo removal.

Thank you! :) x

Hey Lu!

So can I ask where your removed tattoo is exactly, and what exactly it looks like now? Is there still some remnant of the removed tattoo (black or coloured ink), or just a white mark where it used to be?

I think the key thing here is where the tattoo was!

I can tell you any tattoo still visible on your face, neck, and hands will cause issues. That's speaking as a man though, I'm still a bit unclear on whether women can have leg tattoos if they opt to wear trousers.

If it's a wrist or arm tattoo, you can do the following test to see whether it's too close to the hand to be accepted: Bend your wrist inwards; does the tattoo go beyond the lowest line/crease on your wrist? If it does go beyond that then it may be an issue, but it's usually worth at least going to your assessment day if you're not sure!

This is based on my experience of having done an assessment day by the way. Hopefully this is useful to others going forward!
