SSB (Army, Navy and Air Force): Are Tattoos allowed?

I’m back with another blog post related to SSB interview and selection process of Army, Navy and Air Force of India. There are many physical demands that a candidate must fulfill to get admitted into the armed forces. Selecting such eligible candidates is the mission of SSB interview. A doubt that many candidates have is about tattoos and how they’ll affect their fate, when it comes to SSB interview, medical checkup and selection process. The question that they ask is- ‘Are tattoos allowed?’ ‘Do candidates who sport tattoos get accepted to armed forces after SSB and medical checkup?’. I’ll answer those questions here.

According to the guidelines provided by UPSC and SSB board, permanent tattoos are only allowed only on the inner face of the forearm. So, you are allowed to sport a tattoo anywhere between the inside of the elbow to the wrist.

 

Apart from that, one is also allowed to have a tattoo on the backside of the palm. If a candidate sports permanent tattoos on any other parts of the body other than the permitted ones, then it will result in the disqualification if the candidate. He will be banned from appearing for further selection processes also.

 

In case of tribes, who have tattoos on body and face, as per their traditions and customs, they are exempted and are allowed to have tattoos. The authorities will look into the matter and allow tattoos in case of those tribes.

So, in case you are going to appear for SSB interview this time and are having tattoos that are actually forbidden by SSB board, then do try to get rid of them before the interview. Better to stay alert and avoid the risk of getting disqualified from further attempts. There are some cosmetic procedures to remove permanent tattoos effectively. Make use of one such service. Hope I’ve managed to clear your doubts.
