  • Tattoo's in BCT/AIT an Issue?

    I was wondering if Additional Tat's after you passed MEPS will be a Problem. I have a few Already but i planned on getting 2-3 more Before i go to BCT which is in August. I was planning to get 2-3 more in June, So they will Heal in enough time but i was wondering if that will effect my initial paperwork or give me any issues in BCT. Of course they wont be over exposed like on my face or neck or legs. Im thinking 1 on the chest, 1 on the left side of my abs and another on my forearm.

    When you go back through MEPS before heading to BCT you'll have to document that you have new tattoos. This, of course, leaves you susceptible to them saying your tattoos are rac ist or "offensive" in nature. It's so much easier to just get them done after. Focus on working out and preparing for your IET, come back with some cash saved up and get them then as a graduation present to yourself. Make them mean even more to you.

          You'll go back the day or two days before your ship date, and the physical then is very quick and simple. They check your height and weight again and I think that's it, but I don't remember 100%. You don't have to do the crazy exercises again, and it's a much shortened process.

              You're welcome. There's tons of good information on these forums and a lot of great people willing to help.

              I enlisted in January '09 and I've been MOSQ'ed as a MP since...January '10, so just a little more than a year.

                    I just returned from a funeral in NYC. Weather was colder compared to Europe.

                    Anyway, do not get your body marked after going through MEPS. Wait until you completed training.

                      Make sure when you go on pass you get a tattoo of your basic training company.

                      That's what all the high speed guys do.
