tattoos

#1
just wondering
can your application be turned down for having too many tattoos?
i have them on my inner wrist, upper arm, lower back and hip

As long as they would be hidden by your uniform you should be fine (I.e. not on your face and depending hands) It shouldn't affect your application.

Doesn't affect you in the slightest although anyone looking at you in the shower will think you're a lezza and a pikey.

It can be rejected if the tattoos are not, as stated above, hidden by uniform. Forearms is generally OK, upper arms, chest and back likewise, so long as the images/ text could not be seen as offensive by anybody. I was talking to a young guy a few weeks back who is desperate to join up, but has had a script tattoo on the side of his neck above the collar line, and was refused.

Your wrist should be OK in my opinion, so long as it is not a particularly garish design.

They all sound like 'pornstar' tattoos to me.
Either that or you're a scarred pikey.
Do you have 'LOVE HATE' across your knuckles. or ACAB

Got any pictures of them? So we can judge better, you understand!

Oh, I don't know, I'd have to see a pic or 5 to know for sure...

If you get 'Army Be The Best' tatooed on your forehead your entry will be guranteed!
Go on it's the ally thing to do at the moment, most of us in the infantry have it done, you just never see the tat's because they are always covered by our beret's or helmets!

Going by the profile pic, I would too... :twisted:

Still need to see these tattoo pics though!

as long as you can't see the tattoos in uniform its fine. i had an instructor at donnignton who had a tattoo on the underneath of her wrist and she was an instructor so it's allowed, she just usually wore a watch that kind of covered it but if it's not offensive its fine. i've got a few but you can't see them so no-one bothers.

You should be fine with those tattoos, shouldn't be any problems. Don't try to use instructors with more ovious tatts as an example though, they will have gotten their tattoos whilst serving- a lad in my old troop had both sleeves right to the wrist, full back, full chest, and neck tattooed once he was in- he never would've gotten past the ACIO if he had them when he applied.
