Tattoos / Piercings

Post by SophieM » Thu Mar 12, 2020 3:03 pm

Hi guys

Just a quick one, I start training shortly, what’s the criteria for tattoos and piercings?

Can you wear a nose stud in your actual prison?

exactly what Taff said. as long as they aren't offensive or gang related you'll be fine.

i have a fair few visible tattoos and its never been an issue.

I also know other officers with piercings in various places, again all fine with no issues :)
