Tattoo Policy

Explorer C


Hello my name is Kaulin. I’m in aspiring pilot and hope to make it to the airlines one day. I just had one question and seem to can’t find it online. Do you know what the policy is when it comes to tattoos with your airline? Specifically for pilot. I currently have some past my elbow and around my forearm area. Would this completely disqualify me for ever being a pilot or would I wear long sleeve every day to work?

Thank you

I would check out This Thread for more information on the tattoo policy.

Generally speaking if tattoos are not visible or can be covered is the guideline.
