New Career Path = Tattoo Removal

Recommended Posts

So I've decided on a new career path and think I will finally be happy with this choice. I've registered for the civil service test to become a NYS trooper. Test is in October I've been studying away so I can crush the test.

Problem is not allowed any tattoos below the elbow I have 2.......the reqruiter I talked to suggested a plastic surgeon for it it will cost 1000-2500 to have if removed over a period I time. E said not to bother till I take the test and know where I stand. The way he put it " may sound like a lot now but average salary for a trooper is 100k just get it some where else" so that's what I'm gonna do providing I do well on the civil service test.

Perhaps talking to some guys on here that are troopers would help you. I am sure it has it's drawbacks, especially for family life with the crazy hours and constant potential danger.

Congrats homie.

100g ain't even close to enough for me to get my ink lasered. Not no way not no how. Especially when in getting more done at the end of this month. Nope I couldn't do it.

That's what I need removed. I wanted to expand and get sleeves done this winter but a rewarding career and killer retirement are a bit more important I think. I know 2 troopers who are hunting/fishin buddies one is only 43 retired already making 77k on retirement! Ill take that lol

I got a KA-Bar and some free time. 100 dollars and I can take them right off for ya. To hell with paying 2500.

Like the ink work. That's a play on the Latin quote I'm getting across my collar bones. Mors certa, hora incerta. Death is Certain, the hour is uncertain.

The average yearly salary for a New York State Trooper is $47,600. If you are just beginning to work as a State Trooper, you could expect a starting pay of $39,200. As is true for most careers, you can expect your payrate to increase the longer you are employed. You could make an income of around $56,000 after some time.

There are a few creams etc. that I have seen some sound worth it some not. Also sun does wonders too. LOL

 

My wife's cousin had "Lost Soul" taken off his knuckles to do government work, FBI I think. It will be good in the end.

Plus black is one of the easiest colors to remove. The lazer stuff breaks the pigment up, so the ink stays in there so I am told.

That's what I always figured as well is numbers like that but that's lower then state corrections even and I have family in corrections. 2 good buddies in the troopers as well as some guys in the guard I deployed with all make great money lowest paid of the guys I personally know is the one retired.

From what I've been hearing NYS is bringing on upwards of 2000 new troopers. I'm not expecting to start off at 100k I was thinking that's more at the end of career spectrum after 20 years.

If you are doing it for the money I will caution you against that decision as I have learned the hard way. Money is fun to have but it isn't the end all be all....I am starting classes next week to get my masters in teaching and will be taking a pretty substantial pay cut when it all goes down but you know what....who cares :)

I also bet the 100k comment was referring to the OT as well which isn't always calculated in the standard salary figures.

Good luck!!

Yeah I wasn't doing it for the money I didn't even have that figure till meeting with a recruiter and saying I didn't want to get tattoos removed.

I'm looking at it as I've always wanted to get into law enforcement but was always intimidated by it and never really pursued it. I like serving people I've reenlisted in the army national guard for another 6 years and plan on doing my 20 years to retire. I'm already locked in the state pension at tier 3 it's on like 5 now so it's another retirement at the higher rate then anyone getting a state job now for the first time.

I've realized I really don't want to be on the roof roofing. Yeah the money is great when the weather cooperates but it's to unstable. I think this will finally be what I settle and do with my life I've always wanted to be a cop/sheriff/trooper.

man i dont know you guys do it on such little pay....20-30 per hour is crazy when you have to risk your life everyday and such...i make 72k a year and i dont have to worry about getting shot at or any other dangers that come from a job like that...really police should be paid more for the risk they have to take just to do a job

Clayton, one of my clients was seeking a new safety and security officer and a lady candidate had outstanding credentials and excellent references.

 

Was she hired?

 

Nope.

 

She had a big tattoo across the top of her chest.

 

Something the company did not want to have out there as their "face" to the public.

 

They hired a guy in place of this lady.

 

At the Amelia County Beef Festival we saw a very attractive young lady. A blond with a very pretty face and a great body. The problem? A big tattoo across her chest. As pretty as she is I would have thought she would not have any problems getting a good career and moving up the success ladder.  That tattoo scuttled that theory among the business owners I was with. The would not hire her.

 

Tats are OK as long as you understand that a lot of business do not want their employees to have them showing while other employers don't care, on the surface.  We could have a big debate if tats are helpful, harmful or neutral when seeking employment and promotions but we will hold off on that for another day.

 

Sorry the State Police career path is going to be a problem making you eliminate the tats. Hope you can get them removed and get on the force.

Let's do some math.  There are one hundred senators.  Half of their pay is 87,000 dollars.  Multiply that by 100, and you have 8.700,000 dollars to disperse among those in the military.

 

According to Google searches, there are between 1.3 million and 2.3 million uniformed soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, etc.  Each serviceman, depending on the figures given, would receive somewhere in the range of four to seven dollars per year.  Even if the senators were to donate all their "pay" to the military guys, each serviceman would receive about fifteen dollars more per year, or thirty cents per week.

 

It would be a nice gesture, but would not really benefit the military in the least.

All but them two are hidden in shorts and a t shirt. I have 10 all together so 8 are hidden I never got any below the elbow or neck for that reason as some jobs don't want them. At the time I got te two on my forearms I had just graduated with my ASE master tech certs from tech school and had been turning wrenches for 7 years ad thought that's what I would do with my life. A year later I hated working on cars absolutely despised it and still do joined the army at that point.

The people with chest plate tattoos like you mentioned I think is a bit ridiculous I mean don't wear a v neck shirt bam problem solved I have two eagles on my chest and you would never know it unless I take my shirt off or wear a tank top.

I can't speak for soldiers, but as a tax-payer it sure as hell would make me feel better.
