    Vary from one department to another but the vast majority are along those lines. Some don't allow any tattoos exposed so people have to wear those arm sock looking sleeve deals.

    After a 6 year hiatus from the needle, decided to start my back. About 30 hours in, need one more session to add in color to the mouth, eyes, and flowers. Sadly I moved out of the state I started it in, so I’ll have to plan a vacation back to California and have it finished.

    If it does not jeopardize your career and it's something you want, go for it. I would love to ink the hands as well, but I work in the industry which will probably be the last in which hand tats are "acceptable."

    I have a few friends with hand tattoos and none of them regret them, but they are all blue collar guys and are (at least currently) in jobs where no one gives a shit and they don't really have interaction with customers/clients, e.g. mechanics, union electricians, elevator repairmen, glaziers, etc. The truth is most of the world will still judge you, even if the folks in this thread won't - probably not telling you anything you don't know, though.

    I do have a friend that is a firefighter in the highest paid, most uppity county in the state. He has hand and neck tats and it has not affected his career. But, he is 20+ years in at this point. I think it would be a different story if he was just trying to join.

    I guess in all my ramblings, my point is, go for it! I, too, will live vicariously through you.

    Don't mind the purple outline, this was the day it was done.

    This is on the front of my right bicep.

    I was working at the Mama Tried Motorcycle Show in Milwaukee in 2017 and saw this logo when I visited the Harley Davidson Museum. It was on their brochure from 1910, so it was when the HD brand was new and predates the "bar and shield" The offset printing was a little rough, so I had a graphic artist friend clean it up and get the spacing more accurate. I also had him remove the pedals. Originally the top of the shield was blue, but I don't like how blue tattoos look as they age.

    I like that this is sorta a shield, sorta an arrowhead, it is a little patriotic, and it does not scream HD, as the letters look like stripes on a flag.

    I work in the motorcycle industry so tattoos are fairly well accepted. I mostly have BMW motorcycles, but love the history and heritage of prewar HD.
