Tattoos, as long as they are not gang or hate related or excessive, will not prevent you from entering a law enforcement or corrections (prison guard) career.

Depends on where you get it. If it's going to be visible in short sleeves, you may have a problem. If not, it probably won't matter at all.

Yes lots of prison guards and cops have tats. some police in large urban cities with high crime rates were once "ganstaz" and decided to become a police officer to help people.

yes as long as it is not visible in uniform it should not matter. My best friend is a cop and has tattoos on both his shoulders.

Yes, but most agencies now require it not be visible in uniform. Mandatory long sleeves for a whole career sounds like fun. Seriously, avoid from wrist down and neck up.

The rule of thumb is to make sure it's not visible when in uniform. Some places allow officers to have visible tattoos as long as they are not gang related/ violent/sexual, other places strictly forbid visible tattoos.
