    tattoos

    I'm really hoping to be able to do the College Program for Spring 2010 but I have one rally big concern. I have a tattoo. I got it when I was 18 and kinda regret it (and it's only been 3 years) it's on my ankle and pretty easy to cover up with socks or pants. I'm worried that my chances of getting in may be greatly redused due to my tattoo. Anyone here know someone thats been in the program that's had a tattoo?

    While I was on the program quite a few of my friends had tattoos. As long as it is covered up while you are at work it is acceptable.

    The fact that you have a tattoo.....will NOT reduce your chances, especially since it is easy to cover. When you apply, they will ask if you have one, about how big and where it is. But that is just a general question. So that they can be sure that they offer a role where the costume will cover it. But you won't have to worry about that. So best of luck when you apply. The application deadline will be here before you know it.

    Re: tattoos

    Don't worry, you can have a tattoo and work for Disney (I know many people who do). They will just ask you where it is, so they can put you in a location where the costume can cover it.

    I have one on my ankle and still have my job with the company. Mine wraps around my ankle completely. I just wear long enough socks or my pants option.

    We were there two weeks ago and I met a CM with a tattoo that was covered by make-up. Didn't even see it, cousin had to tell me after she asked about it.

    Re: tattoos

    I've known several people with tatoos who work for Disney. Just keep 'em covered in the parks and they're OK with it.
