This morning I decided to apply for an acting school, in between my uni studies. I have dipped in and out of local theatre for over a decade, and as an opportunity presented itself to me this morning, I did my 5 second rule thing, and hit apply !
However, as I went to pick up my morning brew, I spotted my tattoo; which is plain to see, but it got me thinking about how much a tattoo would hinder any acting opportunitues.
I have another two, but these are easier to cover.
Excuse the little bit of a fat belly, it is smaller than before...so thats a blessing!
This is my arm tattoo that I had done at 16. My friend bought me it as a gift for my birthday. I am reluctant to get rid of the faded piece as it is a reminder of my youth !
As you know, I enjoy writing, but acting is also something I enjoy.
It may also be at a disadvantage to try and do professional acting being in my 40's, but if I don't even try, I will never know.
Back to my original question. How do tattoos hinder opportunities in modern day ?
