Bit of a random topic but wanted to see what people thought.. I've just come across this photo trying to find out about the uniform in Suffolk http://www.suffolk.p...nticeffort.aspx.
I was under the impression that the police were very strict with tattoos and that they should not be on show? Is this becoming something that is more relaxed?

Tattoos are not a bar to appointment. However, some tattoos could potentially offend members of the public or colleagues, or could bring discredit to the police service. It depends on their size, nature and location.
Tattoos are not acceptable if they:
Undermine the dignity and authority of the Constabulary;
Could cause offence to members of the public or colleagues and/or invite provocation;
Are garish or numerous or particularly prominent;
Indicate unacceptable attitudes towards genders, minority groups or any other section of the community;
Indicate alignment with a particular group which could cause offence to members of the public or colleagues;
Are considered to be rude, lewd, crude, racist, sexist, sectarian, homophobic, violent or intimidating.

I prefer to wear long sleeve tops to cover my tattoos... avoids the awkward convos with drunk DPs slurring "i like your tattoos mate" lol
Why is it awkward?

I've seen many a skipper, pc and inspector have sleeve tattoos and wear short sleeve shirt. I believe it's one of those rarely enforced rules but be wary about getting stuck on if you do get caught. I was thinking about getting the bible verse Leviticus 19:28 tattooed on the top of my arm.
Couldn't stop laughing when I read this and for any who doesn't know this bible verse check the link
