Having Tattoo

Hello Friends, in this article, I am trying to explain to you whether – Can tattoos affect the preparation of any person and in which practices having a tattoo can be a problem.

There is math that if someone has a tattoo on his body, he can become a hindrance in a government job. So my experience says that it’s not true in all government jobs. In a job where your whole body is checked, a tattoo can affect that job. There are some parts of the body where tattoos cannot be allowed. That is written in the notification in the section on physical criteria. only at that job is the eligibility not and apart from it the job cannot be restricted the tattoo. you can see that the notification of any state cant is written about the tattoo.

But I tell you clearly that the body is visible to all in that part please avoid making this. Think twice before your tattoo. You may not be disqualified from Government jobs or public sector jobs if the tattoo is on parts of the body that are concealed by the clothes you wear. During the medical test before my appointment in 1974 in a Public Sector company, no one scanned my entire body looking for tattoos. I had merely to show them a mole that I had used as my permanent identification mark.

Nowadays even that is outdated due to biometrics and the aadhaar card. I suppose Government departments decide this on a case-to-case basis depending on the nature of the job and how the tattoo affects one’s performance. In the military, you can’t tattoo your forehead. You will look odd during the drills. One incident that I am aware of is that of a young fellow working as a driver. He tattooed “Lakshmi” on the inner face of his forearm. That was his girlfriend’s name. She ditched him later.

This fellow is unconcerned and has now asked his parents to arrange a match for him through the conventional arranged marriage system.
