Tattoo query

I have been lurking round here for a few months trying to read up as much as possible. I have read many threads about tattoos and from what I see as long is the tattoo is not obsene or on the head/neck/hands everything should be good. I am not long off the phone to my AFCO who has informed me that my tattoo may be a bar from entry as it passes where my watchstrap would be. I have to go in sometime before my Recruit test to let them check it out. The other thing about my tattoo is that it is a UV tattoo and appears as just some scar tissue in daylight. Would this help in any way regarding the watchstrap issue?

I know you can't really make a decision without seeing the tattoo, but I'm not quite sure how that falls into PERSEC and would just like to know if I should be preparing for a yes or no.

I joined with several tattoos on my forearms and have another booked for Friday as it happens.

Just make sure you go in there with a bottle of pussers rum and a pack of biscuits. The old and bold love all that.

My mate got in no problems and he was covered in the things. He even had one on his face.

Oh hang on. That was prison.

Well apparently my tattoo is acceptable. Though it took 4 different people to look at it. Just need to pass my psychometric test now in november.

I say Boy, I say Boy, I say Boy, just hold on there a cotton picking minute;

WTF is an Ultraviolet tattoo? I'm a man of the world and all that but are you seriously saying that you have a tattoo that I will only be able to see when the two of us are bopping about under the Disco Lights at Emmas.?
