Jammu: Youths with tattoos on their bodies
will not be recruited in Army as it could be a cause of skin
diseases, an army officer said on Wednesday.
"Instructions have been received that boys with tattoos
anywhere on their bodies except hands will not be recruited
(in the armed forces)," Deputy Director General Recruitment
(Punjab and JK)," Brigadier Vinod Raizada told reporters
"It has been seen recently that boys are going for
tattoos which can spread skin diseases," he said.
Several boys get rejected for having tattoos on their
bodies, the Brigadier said adding "out of every 100 boys (who
come for recruitment), 30 have body tattoos."
Most of the boys from Jammu, Samba and Kathua who had
come for Army recruitment rally in Akhnoor border belt had
body tattoos, he said.
Those youths having tattoos on hands would be sent for
medical tests and recruited only if cleared, Brig Raizada
