British Police to show Tattoos

A police leader has called for officers to show their tattoos even when they are on duty. The idea is to use tattoos as an ‘icebreaker’ when dealing with the public. In the armed forces, visible tattoos are banned. Officers working for the British police are expected to cover their tattoos when they are on duty. Visible piercings are also banned. Rude or discriminatory tattoos that could cause offence to colleagues or the public are also banned.

But Ian Pointon, chairman of the Police Federation in Kent, wants to change the attitude within the police force and encourage officers to reveal their tattoos. They can actually be a good way to start a talking to the public and can serve as an icebreaker. Most people will not be offended by tattoos anymore.

Don’t be surprised next time you see a British police officer with his sleeves rolled up to show off his tattoos!

Next Tattoo for David Beckham will be Harper Seven

David Beckham already has a tattoo of the name of each of his three sons. The next tattoo will certainly be for his new born daugher Harper Seven.

The unusual name will give him many opportunities for a new tattoo. He could have the two names spelled completely or have Harper and number 7 next to it or across it. There are so many combinations possible for a great design.

In the meantime, he's not making his way to the tattoo shop just yet as he's spending time holding the beautiful baby girl in his arms as he's posted on Twitter.

First QR Code Tattoo

Here's a video of how the first ever QR code tattoo was inked....and tested! In fact, this is the first ever interactive or animated tattoo! A record designed in Paris, France.

Fern Britton gets tattooed at 53

You have to wait till you're 18 to get your first tattoo but there's no age limit to when you can start getting inked!
Fern Britton, now 53, has decided it's a great age to get your first tattoo. She had two butterflies tattooed on her tummy.

The former This Morning presenter took her inspiration from Felicity Kendal who had her first tattoo (a star on her foot) at the age of 64. She had been thinking about it for a while and decided that being 53 is a great age to get body art.

No middle age crisis. Fern had been thinking about her new tattoo for a while.
