    Tattoos on an officer?

    Advertisements
    Is it true that you can't become an officer (enlisted to officer) if you have tats on the arms? Hubby heard one thing and I heard another so I thought I would ask the experts!

    TIA!

    Definitely not true.

    ETA: I know officers that have tattoos on their arms.
    Needs work.

    Nope not true. They will evaluate them like they have done to many of the enlisted guys before they can go officer but it doesn't automatically make them unable to become an officer.

    definitely not true. Google the uniform requirements and there is a section on tattoos in there. Like they could tell a naval officer not to get a tattoo,

    My boyfriend has a big ugly one on his back and he was talking about getting one on his arm. So I am assuming not true since he is in OCS now.
