Hi, I’m currently in the process of applying to Essex Police as a PC and have today received confirmation that because of two relatively small tattoos on my hands my application cannot proceed. However, when making the application I advised that they were due to be removed and my first laser removal session took place on 07th October with another 2/3 to go before they’re gone. Should I appeal on the basis that they wouldn’t be there by the time I’d joined or leave it until further down the line when they’re gone? Thanks in advance
