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.
