Ever Wonder Why so Many Crew Members Wear Elastic Bandages?

Princess requires all crew members to cover tattoos therefore the reason for so many wearing elastic/gauze bandages ... I thought I had boarded a ship with a lot of clumsy crew ....

What do they have against tats?

Who knows but it's rather odd when about 4 out of 5 deck hands have a bandage on their arm or leg which is why I asked ,,,

I've never noticed it before. Then again, most of the time I recall them wearing long sleeve shirts.

I have not noticed that, but then I don't cruise on Princess.

What a ridiculous rule, in my opinion. Someone asked John Heald about tattoos not too long ago, and they are allowed on Carnival, but most are hidden under long sleeves and pants.

I agree it is silly and looks even sillier when the deck hands are wearing their shorts and short sleeve shirts.

Nice. Leave the customers thinking many crew members have some kind of an open wound.

LOL - it was really odd especially by the pool - and the vast number who had them - bad rule Princess!
