Question about my scars and tattoos

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I got into a small accident in 2010 leaving me with some very noticeable scarring in my face. Long story short i went to a plastic surgeon to fix it, it got infected and made things worse. Several operations later it became even more noticeable. I also have some visable tattoos (hands and neck). I have no criminal background and come from europe.

Would they ask me about it and give me a hard time? Would i need a note from my GP explaining my scars? What about tattoos?

No there won't be any problems, assuming the tats are not gang related/ don't look like prison tats.

I have full sleeves and a penguin tat on my legs, and they weren't even mentioned.

Thanks, thats one less worry... I'm usually judged by how i look (beard, scars, tattoos etc) but im a very nice guy lol. One more question, what about my medical history? What do I need to provide? Do i need to show a long list of everything I went to see my GP for? What do they need to know about my past?

Being from EU it should not be a big deal at your consulate, however many Latin

countries consulate focus on tats....You could have someone translate your tats

proving they are not gang related..numbers, tear drops, clowns & area codes are

focused on by consulates, other tats can be explained..You should not have a prob
