Rangers tattoo

Hello,

I read on the RN website that 'political' tattoos aren't tolerated. Unfortunately it didn't elaborate on as to what they consider to be political.

Would they consider a Rangers FC tattoo on my chest to be political?

Cheers.

Served with a bloke with a Rangers tattoo on his arm, it's not a political tattoo but I'd leave your shirt on if you're in a mess full of Celtic supporters ;)

When I went for my medical the overly cautious Dr was questioning if a tattoo of Churchill in my ww2 sleeve was politcal. If asked just explain it’s purely a football related tattoo.

Possibly not however any such tattoo, whether Rangers or Celtic may in the eyes of some, at recruiting level, label you a cretin. Just saying.....:) ;)

Rangers / Celtic and sectarian
( Ulster / Northern Ireland / Catholic/ Protestant/ HM Queen/ some dead bloke/Pope/King Billy tribal bollocks to go hand in hand ‘over the water’ and in Glasgow where Jocks think that they’re Paddys.

Rangers ‘fans’ have some lovely ditty about being ‘up to their necks in Fenian blood’.

Never mind all that other bollocks, loyalty to football clubs to the extent of getting their ‘ink’ is not something I get.

Mate of mine, a civy before I joined up, decided as a Derby fan to have the ram tattooed to his arm. It was supposed to be a small black outline coloured in, with writing above and below. He couldn't handle the pain, so only had the black outline done of the ram, he paid and said he would be back, he never did. As tats go I think his unfinished one looked better that the coloured in version. Apparently so do others who have had only the outline but they also tend to get the text, just in case the forget what it was for?

Antrim, early 70s, Hong Kong.

Young thruster went into Pinkies for tatt of Pegasus on chest, wingtips on the front of each shoulder etc - massive thing.

Seems it hurt a bit, in fact a lot. So only had the outline done and never went back. I often wonder what happened to him/it.

Not really!

Buttock Tattoo Terror Lands Rotherham Pair In Hospital

A furious row has broken out between a local tattoo artist and his client after what started
out as a routine inking session, left both of them requiring emergency hospital treatment.

Vintage film fan and part time plus size model Tracey Munter (23), had visited the Ink It Good Tattoo
Emporium on Wellgate last week to have the finishing touches applied to a double buttock representation
of the chariot race scene from the iconic 1959 film, Ben Hur. Tattooist Jason Burns takes up the story.

“It was a big job in more ways than one.” he told us “I’d just lit a roll up fag and was finishing off a centurions
helmet. It’s delicate, close up work. Next thing is, I sense a slight ripple in the buttock cleavage area just around
Charlton Heston’s whip, and a hissing sound – more of a whoosh than a rasp – and before I know what’s happening,
there’s a flame shooting from her arse to my fag and my beards gone up like an Aussie bush fire.”

Jason says he rushed to the studio sink to quell the flames, only to turn round and see Tracey frantically fanning
her buttock area with a damp towel. The flames had travelled down the gas cloud and set fire to her thong which
was smoking like a cheap firework.

“To be honest”, said Jason, “I didn’t even realise she was wearing one. You’d need a sodding mining licence and
a torch to find out for sure. She could have had a complete wardrobe in there and I’d have been none the wiser.”

Jason and Tracey were taken to Rotherham District Hospital accident and emergency department where they
were treated for minor burns and shock. Both are adamant that the other is to blame.

“I’m furious” said Jason, “I’ve got a face like a mange-ridden dog and my left eyebrow's not there any more.
I don’t know about Ben Hur – Gone With The Wind’s more like it. You don’t just let rip in someone’s face like that. It’s dangerous.”

But Tracey remains both angry and unrepentant; “I’m still in agony,” she said, “And Charlton Heston looks more
like Sidney bloody Poitier now. Jason shouldn’t have had a fag on the go and there’s no way I’d guff on purpose.
He’d had me on all fours for nearly an hour. I can only put up with that for so long before nature takes its course.
My Kev knows that.. I give him my five second warning and I’d have done the same for Jason, but I didn’t get chance – it just crept out.”

Ted Walters from the South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue service wasn’t surprised when we told him what had happened.
“People just don’t appreciate the dangers....“ he told us, “We get called out to more flatulence ignition incidents than
kitchen fires these days, now people have moved over to oven chips. We have a slogan ‘Flame ‘n fart – keep ’em apart’.
Anyone engaging in an arse inking scenario would do well to bear that in mind in future...”
