    Not perfectly, but they can be if you have someone talented at makeup.

    It's quite easy to cover tattoos with makeup. I have several. Try using Google to look it up. Also, read up on BMEzine. They don't sell anything related to what we discuss here, but I'm not gonna risk linking to them, just to be safe.

    If you plan on competing, I would look for a design that flows with the natural curves of your body, IE tribal is a good idea (not lee priest)

    Also some bodybuilders have designs on their forearms that are masked, one that comes to mind is Dorian's bulldog. You can barely notice it.

    Any large bright tattoos your risking it. I'm a big fan of tats and have many, but I don't plan on competing .

    You can use cover-up to cover tattoos. Just get makeup that matches your skintone.

    Long sleeves?

    Americas more accepting of tattoos then they were. I have my forearm "sleeved". If I'm going to a meeting, I usually just wear a button down shirt. No big deal.

    I have competed for years with a half sleeve and had no problems. Tattoos used to be frowned upon but more bodybuilders seem to have them today

    Do not get tribal,thats like a fcuking mullet.Can't stand those damn things,nothing shouts"i want to be cool so need a tat" more than a tribal tattoo.At my tattoo parlor the artists have tool boxes with drawings and what not in them.They are covered in bumper stickers from diferent places they have worked.My favorite 2 are"it's all about the pain,the ink and ring are souveniers"and"we got the tattoo for you,even if it's some gay ass tribal siht"

    Tattoos are not looked down like that anymore,if you didn't get the promo it wouldn't be the tattoo.It's almost impossible to shock someone today cause its all been done.If you have a job that appearance realy truly matters,then you're wearing a suit every day,don't get any on your hands face or neck,problem solved.I seen a guy in a tattoo mag that was covered,everything had ink,except hands,neck,and face.He worked for a major corp,and this was his reason for not being completely covered.The only thing that might hold you back in a"shallow"job would be facial hair.(i say shallow cause judging someone on appearance is shallow,it should matter only how well you do your job)
