Tattoo?

#2
Well, common sense will tell you that a few officers will have one.

It depends on what and where!

Offensive tats will be a no-no whereas the decent tribal, not visible in shirt sleeve order will hardly raise an eyebrow!

This has been covered before and the common sense rule that if it's covered up in shirt sleeve order, you're OK, seems to be the general guidance.

The RAF refused my brother-in-law's application because of two tattoos - the Army said yes, he went through Sandhurst with them with no dramas and has now been an officer for 9-10 years with them.

No-one has passed comment except to praise the artwork!

Not their fault, the Hilton won't allow guests with tattoos, so he couldn't be deployed overseas.

Got my RCB coming up and was worried through the whole process becuase of my tatoo, but finally asked about it and its fine as long as its:

1. Not offensive (NAZI, KKK anything like that)
2. Not visible in uniform

Is that either/or? :twisted:

It all depends what and where. I would suggest a discreet ying and yang sign at the base of the spine would not be a problem.

"WANDSWORTH 1991-1999, D WING MAXIMUM MAN-TAKER" On the forehead may well, however, present issues...

Most of the Officers in my Regiment have got the same tattoo after our CO got one done.

They are very small (an elephant) and cannot be seen when in uniform. I can only assume that if a CO gets one done then they must be allowed to.

My god, talk about the blind leading the blind! This would not happen in the Senior mess.

Agreed this is the sort of class posting that makes ARRS the fine intellectual instrument that it has gained World renown as.

Well, it would be bad form to accept this honour, what with so many weeks of 2006 remaining.
