  • Tattoos on the O side

    Hi I am currently in the Reserve (yeah i know i am on a ARNG forum, but this forum really helps), and i'm a 31E

    Ill be Attending college next spring semester as an ROTC cadet in the SMP, and i want to get 2 tattoos (possibly) small maybe hand sized tattoos both within regs high on bicep and one on chest, one honoring my enlisted side, and then my dad who was in for 10 years AD.

    Are these going to effect my officer career at all? Specifically Infantry because that is what i am going to try to branch granted i score high enough.

    Thanks Soldiers!

    Depends on who you ask. If they're within regs, they shouldn't, but there are unwritten rules about them. As long as it's just two and they're covered up with a short-sleeved shirt, I don't foresee any issues

      As long as they aren't visible in uniform, you shouldn't have any issues. Lance brings up a good point about unwritten rules and being an officer but these don't seem as strict as active duty.
