I bet a parent moaned about it at a P/T meeting.
As long as they are not offensive I don't see anything wrong with it, in fact, if it makes a kid ask about them and finds out its done with a needle it may discourage them in the first place.
If it ain't broke, management will ask me to mend it !

I don't have any myself, but i'm not fussed either way. I guess LA's/HT/Govs change their opinions overtime, and after 14 years maybe there is a reason they want them covered up. If they're not in anyway offensive, and i guess they're not or you'd have been asked to cover up before, then maybe you need official guidance on where you stand with this new directive. Is it local or county wide?
My wife asked him to pick up a loaf of bread and, if they had eggs, to get a dozen. I came home with a dozen loaves of bread.

Your school should have a dress code for employees, if so check it. If it does not mention tattoos then tell them you will cover them up if the dress code is amended. But make sure they know that it must involve ALL staff including the CO's with the little tattoo on their ankle or wrist then they might back down.
I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people.... I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort it self out.

I think our dinner ladies have the most in our school, what a state they look. :icon_tongue:

I don't have any but this happened a couple of years ago. A new Teacher was told he had to cover one up on his arm by the governors. He responded by saying then how his it the then head could have one showing on his neck. The head did have most of it covered but not all. We now have a new head and a new policy. No seeable tattoo's.
Oh and the new Teacher soon left.
