Last year I got the Royal Marines badge tattooed onto my arm. However I start training very soon and the sergeant at the recruiting office says they might not like the fact that I've had the tattoo done. Is this true? I don't want to get it removed as it looks cool on my arm. I also can't afford to get it removed because I'm not working at the moment. But will they make my life hell in training for having the tattoo done before passing training?
