Q: Can I go swimming if I have tattoos?

I've heard that in some parts of Asia - notably Japan - people with tattoos are denied access to public swimming pools. Does this rule exist in Beijing, and if so, where? (I like swimming, but I have tattoos!)

You certainly can. I have tried and tested. Lot's of people will stare but suprisingly enough people like tattoos in China and they are always saying WOW.

Yes. Of course. If you arent sure, head over to the pool and check out all the other tattooed people.

Of course! I didn't even know it was a problem in some parts of the world. Never had this issue in China though. The only problem i had was to give blood, they refused my blood because i had a tattoo the first time, not the second... strange!!

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
