This could probably be challenged.  I am all for this ruling, but it isn‘t fair to apply a standard now and demand costly surgery to have artwork removed if the standard wasn‘t enforced in the past - is it?

This sounds the same as the UK‘s rules about no tatoos on the neck or face area. Does it say anything about excessive tattoos on other areas like arms, chest or back?

Nothing on the arms but if the tats on the back or chest can be seen with an open collared shirt then then no.

Do you mean nothing allowed to be on the arms or do you mean it says nothing about tats on the arms???  :confused:

I can‘t see that they‘d expect you to remove existing tatoos... though I don‘t see anything wrong with banning neck tatoos...
Remember troops, the minimum acceptable standard is still an acceptable standard.

Atticus: tattoos on the arms are fine as long as they are apropriate and don‘t contain nudity or profanity.

From what i have been told Removal is not required unless its extremely vulgar. If its on the arm or an area that can be covered it will be and that if you have a tattoo in those areas before the date you are ok.

Hey how about that Price Albert?

In the ADF, piercings on say the nipps, belly buttons, etc must be removed whilst on duty.

Do I have a piercing? HELLL No, but I do have tatts. Three of em, right upper arm, over my heart, and on my back.

Yes my GF hates em! The worst one pain wise was the on on my shoulder blade. Thats was a shocker!


Cheers,

Wes

If you are a male all earings, and other piercings should have been removed while in uniform.

Females 1 small silver or pearl stud in each ear. That is all

I just got that in the O-group yesterday.. you may wear your body piercings on base IF you live on base and are on your way off the base to town. That‘s the only permissible time.

No man should have body piercings.  Except maybe those gay biker leather guys in San Francisco.  Other then that it should be an international rule.

Honestly guys, if you have a PA piercing, do you think anyone is going to check? I know plenty of men and women in the forces who have body piercings below the neck. They certainly aren‘t going to strip you naked to check, but if there‘s a problem with it and it gets infected and you need to go to the MIR, you could get in crap for it then.

But yes, all body piercings are verboten. Women can have a single earring in each ear, and that‘s it. Men are not "supposed" to have any holes in their body that they weren‘t born with.

Question on the piercings, are you allowed to wear a.. I‘m blanked out on the name right now, but its a piece of clear plastic, you put it in your piercings, they cant be seen, but they keep the piercing open, so it wont close up

I‘m assuming right now the answer is no, but just like to confirm it
