Im thinking about getting a tattoo on the top of my arm which will be st george slaying the dragon would this be acceptable or would this offend groups therefore stop me going in the navy?

Better still a tattoo of an EDL thug in an England kit burning down a mosque, that might offend as much as this blatant presentation of English symbolism..... No BTW.

One thing few consider;

The rules regarding tattoos are on the RN website and whilst a non-offensive tattoo that is not visible in parade uniform isn`t normally a problem...One that can identify the individual, their military affiliation or country of origin can limit employment on certain operations of a covert/sensitive nature, according to the "good book". Unlikely, but possible.

Apart from identifying an individual, tats are shite and a waste of money (IMHO of course).

Inclined to agree. I have two and, a bit like Marmite and royal babies, I neither hate not love them. I'm totally indifferent.
