Teaching in China: teacher with tattoos

Hello Everyone

I have two Skype interviews next week to teach TEFL in china. I’m not too sure on what they are like on tattoos. Could any give me a heads up please?

Much Appreciated

Tattoo look unprofessional in any business. If you have them on your arms I suggest you wear a long sleeve shirt. If you were dumb enough to put them on your face, neck, or hands, you will learn and unfortunate lesson in life. People DO judge books by their covers no matter how politically correct we try to be.

It's true. In Asia tattoos are identified with gangs. They don't like them to be visible. Probably best to deny having them and never let anyone see them.
