  1. Hi,

    I have a very small tatoo (about the size of a 5p) on the inside of my wrist. During the initial interview with my ACA, I was told that I would probably have to have it removed, however on subsequent fam visits I have been told that it should not be a problem.

    I have my main board in a few weeks time and was wondering at what point, if at all, I should raise the issue?

    I would be grateful for any advice.
  2. Depends if the tattoo is offensive or not. If not don't worry.

    get a wider watch strap!
  4. I've heard mixed things, some that it doesn't matter as long as it is not offensive, and others that it must be coverable with a long/short sleeve shirt!

    If I were you I wouldn't worry, I was just advised not to get any more. You'll probably be told the same thing.
