Think very very seriously about getting a tattoo done. They are not just for Christams you know! When I was in I got several seriously **** tats done and now as I am getting older I regret every one of them. But hey! it's your body. 8)
 
I got bored sitting in a tattoo parlour waiting room abroad, I wanted my fiances name on my arm. I'm glad I didn't get it done, she kicked me in to touch when I returned home :p Think twice before you get it done, it is very expensive to get them removed :!: :lol: :lol:

Why pay a sh!t load of money to scar yourself for life.
Many of the guys I joined up with had them, it was almost part of the joining routine. Twenty years later most of them regretted having them. However if you are keen on a tattoo I would get one that does not show when wearing normal clothing (including short sleeve shorts).

I'd leave having the tat done till after you pass out, that way theres no risk of it being an obstacle to your joining process.
Make sure you are certain about having the tat done, as the removal process is expensive and leaves horrible scars. In fact, they often look worse than the tatoo!. The inks used in tattoing thesedays don't fade very quickly, just make sure you use a reputable tattooist. There are some great ones out in the states at the mo, as an industry its years ahead of the "back street" image presented by the UK tatto industry.

As one who has worked in a medical environment, with all of the blood borne infections and incurable diseases around. I wouldn't bother.
BTW it doesn't matter that the Tattooist gives you your own little pots of ink either..............................
