I have some ink, some not in the locations that were listed. BUT.. What hurt me the most was the tattoo on my back. It goes all the way down to the behind and wraps around my hips.. OUCH.. the hips were tender

 I don't have any tattoos but I have thought about getting one. I have two ear piercing in both ears and that is it.

I would simply say to anyone in law enforcement to think carefully before getting any tattoos.  remember, just like we remember the folks we come into contact with, they will remember US too!  I would avoid getting tattoos in area that normally would NOT be covered by a uniform shirt, short or long sleeved!  Depending on where you would get your ink done, it could seriously limit your suitability for some special assignments, undercover work, things of that nature.  Always remember that when you're off duty, you want to blend in, not stand out, so avoid getting any ink that would make you an 'object of interest.'  I'm retired now, but I teach LE courses in a university.  I meet young people weekly who are interested in pursuing LE careers, but they have distinctive tattoos on their necks, ears, hands, the back of their necks, even their faces.  Many of them express an interest in doing narcotics assignments.  I tell them that if they are fortunate enough to get hired with the visible ink on their extremities (some PDs still won't hire candidates with excessive ink), they should really consider losing some of the ink on their faces, arms, necks, ears, etc. because that work is dangerous enough as it is.  Some PDs have residency requirements, and you don't want to reside in a town where you're doing that kind of work with a lot of visible ink where the folks you're investigating can see it and make note of it.  It can be dangerous for you and your family when you're off duty.

I don't like tattoos on LEOs either.  I don't like showy facial hair, body art, jewelry, loud cosmetics or nail polish or anything extra to inform the badge.  I want to see totally clean cut taking the witness stand.

Of the choices given, I'd say groin for obvious reasons. From experience (not on the groin), I think any tattoo in an area of little muscle, or an area that is pretty sensative to begin with is painful. Inside the bicep, inside the thigh, top of foot, hands, etc. is painful. For me, the thigh was pretty painful.


On the witness stand.....I don't think an officer should be on a witness stand in anything less than either a suit and tie, or a class A style uniform (long sleeve shirt and tie). If tat's show in that, it's no good. I do have 1 tattoo on my forearm that does show in short sleeve shirt. I had it done prior to going into law enforcement. If it was an issue, or becomes an issue, I'd gladly wear long sleeves, or make an effort to cover it. For the most part, I do agree with marlyb. Law enforcement by nature is para-military, and should exibit the same (not to turn this into a debate about the acceptability of tattoos). I do have many myself that don't show.

Yup. Can take the paramilitary angle.  Also, just like you and me - Everyman.  As in, neutral and fair witness for the State, unencumbered by additional signs and symbols to further inform the badge's meaning.  And the Jury's decision.


It's all good.

I would have to say the rib cage is pretty uncomfortable. My tattoo artist would say besides the genitals it is the most painful area... I'll take his word for it.

 I have to say, the inner part of the upper arm hurts like hell, and gets worse the closer you get to your armpit. The skin is just really sensitive there. Seconds would be the boney upper part of the shoulder area.

 I only have one tattoo, it's a large one on the upper part of my right shoulder.  When the tat artist was getting closer to my clavicle, it started to get painful.  So I would think that anywhere near or on top of your bone is painful.
