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!
