    It Hep B I think. me and Oh both had to have it. Not sure whether it would make a difference with it being a recent tattoo though.

    I think it depends how big the tattoo is, and whether you had it done in the UK. My OH has a couple and wasn't required to have any further tests, I think it is sort of up to the doctor's discretion. But if you do it is only an extra £39 I think, so not too much to worry about. :)

    As a board-certified medical officer, I must also advise you that we are obliged to report the tattoos to Immigration. This information will be included in your Character Assessment and could count against you. Any tribal, science-fiction work eg dragons and the like, football team or pop culture tattoos will have a negative impact on your application. Please tell me what tattoo you have so that I can advise you accordingly.

    OOOH, Dr LYING;

    funny but not very helpful........imo!

     

    Having said that, tattos should be disclosed as a matter of course as distinguishing features; this is true for pasport applications, migration and in some cases job applications..........

    I am guessing this is a joke? Obviously the doctor saw the tatoos seeing as he was in his pants! :D
