I saw a pkg driver just this afternoon that had his brown shorts on and a long sleeve shirt. Obviously for the reason you are concerned about.

It's not a secret about having to cover tattoo's. It might benefit you, as well as impress your instructors, if you were to wear a long sleeve shirt......they will know why.

good luck

I don't know where you are, but here where I am tattoo's are not issue, many people have them on their legs etc, and make no attempt to cover them up. If I need to slip out from behind my desk and shuttle or something, I make no attempt to cover them up. One of our union stewards has about 8 on her legs, they are covered pretty much, and no one has ever said a thing, but I am sure it is different elsewhere.

some division and center managers like to harass you about them..others dont...im sure they already know you have tats..most managers find out info on the drivers that are coming to their center...

That one will be fine............

Ups feels you should not have them, keep them covered til you are in, then let them fly as long as not offensive, to anyone, which will be hard.
Depends on the mgmt, some dont care, others make the guys wear socks to their genitals to cover them if necessary. We had one driver who had a tribal insignia, and had to wear his sock to his knee to cover it.

I say: show off that ink, it might build business and you could get paid a sales lead. I am sure the suit that will be telling you what do has a few on the canvas, too. If your concerned get past the probation period then show off the colors!
