Can I find a job in Japan if I have tattoos?

Yes, you can find a job.

If it's possible to conceal the tattoo under clothing, it should be done.

Service jobs with customer interaction, where the tattoo is visible, might have limitations on available jobs.

Jobs without customer interaction, such as farm work, are generally possible.

On the application photo, if feasible, the tattoo should not be visible. The same applies to piercings, as well as hairstyles and beards that significantly deviate from the socially accepted norm in Japan.
