RAF allows candidates with tattoos but with restrictions

The Royal Air Force has revised its policy to allow recruits to have tattoos on their eyebrows, fingers and neck.

Recruiter understands personnel are now allowed to have cosmetic tattoo of their eyebrows, a single finger tattoo that could be covered by a ring, tattoos on the back of the neck that do not extend beyond the hairline, and tattoos on the side of the neck that aren’t visible when wearing a standard uniform.

Commenting on the new policy, an RAF spokesperson said: “We have revised our tattoo policy to ensure we continue to attract the right people for a career in the RAF, while promoting inclusivity and ensuring that the force continues to be representative of the modern-day society we serve.”
