Also please note: ISP's procedure states that visible tattoos on the head, neck, or hands are prohibited and must either be removed or covered by an acceptable means that does not deter from the professional image. Tattoos on arms below the cuff of the summer uniform must be removed or covered by an acceptable means that does not deter from the professional image.
