Ahh, but remember that these days anyone can get into an actors union. Heck, I've been offered SAG before. I didn't take it because I know I do not stand a chance at SAG level yet, and being in the union would only prohibit me or make me too costly for the smaller projects.Originally Posted by thejoshualee
Anyway, my opinion is thus:
if the tattoos do not ruin the look, then no problem. If you have flame tattoos on your arms and neck, don't work Indy or the Matterhorn, they don't work with "the story." However, such body art could be acceptable in many areas of DCA because it is set in a contemporary atmosphere and much of it is based on a "hip fun loving culture."
Personally I find tattoos unnatractive. Everytime a really cute girl mentions that shes going to get a tattoo in the middle of her back or something small and cute just right above/below my ankle/neckline/breast/bikiniline/shoulder, my labido rolls over in it's grave.
And as for Aladdin having a tattoo, it would all depend on what the tat actually was. Also if he was good other than that. I have seen chubby asian Aladdins, and if they had been good, I wouldn't have minded. And if it bothers you, just mention it to city hall or whatever it is in DCA and maybe they'll have him wear some make up over it.
