"Art" of the interview...

Tattoos and Body Art.

Applicants cannot have tattoos or body art that is visible while wearing the official HPD uniform. If you have tattoos that would be visible in uniform you must have them removed or you will not be eligible for employment. In the past, applicants who have had tattoos that are on the neck, face, head, wrists, or hands have been denied employment.

If your official uniform can cover it whether it be long sleeve or short sleeve you will be fine, otherwise, you might want to reconsider where you place that tattoo.

It's very important to know that you do not need to remove or cover the tattoo or body art during the application process. You may still go through the process, however if you are accepted into the academy you will be required to cover or remove the tattoo or body art at that time.
