I'm in the AF and was a volunteer FF before i came in. my tat was easy to include both military and FF because I'm now a medic in the AF, but being that your not a military FF you might not want to combine them! unless of course you plan on not making friends that are military FF. they tend to be a little to gung-ho about their job. and I'm sure army guys would be "nicer" than AF guys bout it to. :)

Personally, I have nothing against tatoo's... but you sound like a young man, not sure if you are already employed full time as a career firefighter, nor do I know if you are aspiring to become one. But assuming you or someone reading this post is thinking about getting a tatoo, here's the most recent memo that just came out of my departments SOP Manual, verbatim... think before you ink!

For purposes of this policy, "tattoo" includes any tattoo, scar, branding, mark, or other permanent "body art" or modification deliberately placed on the body for purposes of decoration, ornamentation, or adornment.

Tattoos and other scar, branding, mark, or "body art" listed above are not permitted on the neck, face, head or on the hands of employees

Visible tattoos:

A visible tattoo is one that is on any portion of the body not covered by clothing.

Visible tattoos are not permitted on employees

Clothing allowed for the covering of tattoos shall be limited to typical department uniform as stipulated by department policy.

The only addition to the typical department uniform allowed for the purpose of covering tattoos is lightweight skin-colored sleeves ("compression garment"), however such sleeves must be removed when responding to fire incidents.

The only exception to the prohibition of visible tattoos is while wearing "PT" clothing while in the act of departmental physical training.

On a final note, the Los Angeles City Fire Department, for example, now requires a swim test. It has nothing to do with swimming so much as it does to expose any tatoos. Zero tolerance policy towards tattoos are being strongly enforced due to gang issues and the publics perception that it is offensive to have exposed tattoos.

Bottom line, if you want to get the badge and make a career for yourself, think twice about the tattoo's if you want to work on the west coast...

As for myself, when I retire and I am close to retirement, one of the things that I've always wanted is a tattoo of a woolly mammoth. It's probably kind of mute for me considering that I'm pretty woolly myself and you probably won't be able to see a tattoo anyway...

Good luck with your decisions and career path.

TCSS, Mike
