Duct Tape Rules!!!

My darling daughter (who I just want to string up by her toes right now) went out and got herself a tattoo for her birthday.  Now...I don't have a problem with tattoos.  I have even thought about getting one for myself.  What I have a problem with is the fact that she got it on the back of her hand, kind of by the thumb area.

My question is how are some ways for her to cover this up when she needs to interact with the real world?  She is planning on becoming a costumer in either the film or theater fields so she feels like it will be no big deal.

Don't call it trash...I can make something with it!!!

there are make up kits designed to cover up tats, i've never tried them but a lot of people are crazy about them.


here are a couple links for some makeup options.

What shop did she go to?  That way I know to avoid it...  Most reputable shops will not tattoo hands, necks or faces unless the person is already heavily tattooed, or at the very least will try extremely hard to talk the client out of that placement.  I hope the makeup kits work, because chances are she will need them until she has actually established a career.  If you're good at knitting, the only thing I can think of other than gloves is a sweater with thumb holes in the sleeves, but then that isn't job interview attire...  Ooh what about some kind of funky bracelet with an attached ring if you are into jewelery making?

I wish her luck in getting into the particular field that she is interested in, and hope that she isn't part of the majority that changes careers at least 5 times in their life time.

i understand your concern.
i got a tattoo on my chest, and my parents dont mind it, they only worry about my wedding day.  most likely they will make me cover it up with makeup, but i will most likely refuse.  my tattoo is as much a part of me as any other part of my body.

As for a tattoo holding you back from a job? i can cover the tattoo up with modest blouses and tee shirts, but personally, i wouldnt want to work at any place who would refuse me a job because of a tattoo.

Thanks for the links Kurtzie.  I had not heard of that brand of make-up before.

Don't worry FauxChina, we are in Houston area in Texas.  Far away from you.  She was apparently very insistant for the hand.  When I asked why, she said it was because she didn't want to take off any clothes to get to an area to be tattooed.  That's why she had it done on her hand.

Letusplay, I understand what you are saying about not wanting to work for someone who would judge you just on your appearance, but the sad truth is that there are a lot of people like that. 

I just worry about her trying to get established in her career.  That's why I wanted her to pick some place that could be covered up for a job interview or meeting with a director or whatever.  It really isn't the thought of her having a tattoo, it is just the fact that it is on her hand that is driving me crazy.  Especially since she didn't have a good reason for placing it there!
