They have a big book full of tatoos that you can and cannot have. You are not even technically aloud to have a maple leaf on your shoulder as some gang in the east apparently had a maple leaf as their symbol. Hopefully they‘re lenient, and yes,dont mention it.

Some of the regulations are newer; while you may find many people who have been in for a while who are in violation, these are recruiting regulations. In other words, you can‘t get in with some of these particular tattoos, but if you have them already before the ban was put in place, you can stay in without being forced to have them removed.

The only restrictions against NEW tattooes while serving is that they cannot be above the neck line and not racist or otherwise offensive.I would imagine a charge and fine/extra duties would be the extent of the punishment for those who break this stupid regulation of tats above the neck line.

Do you think that some JTF-2 operators have tattoos?  Do you think it is accepted?

There are no restrictions on tats for JTF period end of story provided like the rest of the CF they are not rasist.
 People read the fing posts,if you have a tat above the neck line already you are good to go,if you get a NEW one abve the neck line you are open to administrative or disclipinary action.

I see no problem with you joining with numerouse tattoos, my good friend has 33 and they are in good taste and he has not run into any problems.
As for no tattoos on your hand I dont know about that I just got a Maple Leaf tattoo‘d on my left hand and no one said anything to me about it.
I would recommend if you are still unsure to visit your local recruiting office and let thme have a look at what you got, they should help you out.

The army would not care if you have a tattoo on your forearm would they? I didn't think they would but I had somebody tell me they do. The tattoo looks like the one attached only on my forearm

Funny, because I typed "tattoo" in the search field and got this:

http://forums.army.ca/forums/index.php/topic,28423.0.html

And this:

http://forums.army.ca/forums/index.php/topic,32363.0.html

Even funnier, I found the first link in the very first result. How crazy is that?

EDIT: I better make this even easier just in case:

Quote from: Calculator Jockey from the first linked topic
In accordance with the CF Dress Regs Manual Section 2 (page 2-2-6) - Appearance - Body Adornment para 9. it states:

"Members shall not acquire visible tattoos that could be deemed to be offensive (e.g., pornographic,
blasphemous, racist) or otherwise reflect discredit on the CF. Visible and non-visible body piercing
adornments, with the exception of women's earrings and ear sleepers described in sub-paragraph 6.a.,
shall not be worn by members either in uniform or on duty in civilian clothing. The meaning of the term â Å“on
dutyâ ?, for purposes of dress and appearance, is Interpreted in Chapter 1, paragraph 25."

And QORvanweert is right, if you have them prior to enrolment, nothing much they can do. I have seen some pretty wild ones walking around lately on some of the new Privates (back of their necks, hands, etc.)

Once enrolled though, the above reference stands.

Well if you found those links, when you searched for Tattoos, why did you bother posting, as your questions were answered in those threads.   If you think people are being "smartassess" now, you are in for a very big culture shock.

Well first off I already searched and found those topics, the answers varied , as I read more people were saying that you can't have any tattoos above the neck anymore. So, I thought hey why not post a new thread and ask the question, hell, who knows maybe the rules changed or something.  So with that, I asked my question. Does that make sense to you? If it doesn't Sorry Can't help you out bud.

Sorry I thought this was a fourm, you know where you make posts and asks questions. Didn't realize this is just a FAQ
