While companies like Starbucks have lifted their tattoo bans over the years, one industry remains conservative on their dress codes. That industry is the airline industry, with most companies banning visible tattoos for their flight attendants. However, Air New Zealand has become the world's first airline to allow visible ink.


“We want to liberate all our staff including uniform wearers such as cabin crew, pilots and airport customer service teams who will, for the first time, be able to have non-offensive tattoos visible when wearing their uniforms.” explained the CEO for Air New Zealand, with this initiative taking effect on September 1st of 2019.
