Actually, it's only legal in ON, BC and SK (I think): https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topfreedom_in_Canada

Personal experience? What about the pictures?

I thought so, too.

But that's because no one has needed to challenge in other provinces yet due to the precedent being set in the three you mentioned, no?

I have no idea.  There is this quote from the same source: "Since the matter has not been determined by the Supreme Court of Canada, it is still possible that a woman could be convicted elsewhere in Canada."

Anyway, back to the topic of tattoos.  Good rule of thumb: If you think it might be offensive, get it somewhere it doesn't show in uniform.  Or don't get it at all.

Agreed. As in life, if you have to question if it's right, it probably not.

Serious question, does this mean the Sailor Jerry style pinup girl is verbotten?
https://sailorjerry.com/en/tattoos/

I was curious if you would receive an answer. Certainly not for me to say.

But, at least with "Sailor Jerry" I know what I am looking at.

What I sometimes find confusing these days is that unless I look closely, and ask questions about what it all means ( which I would never do, unless I know the person ) I'm not usually sure what I am looking at exactly, or what it represents.

Not being very tattoo savvy, some of it looks like a bit of a Rorschach test to me.

But some of my more interesting adventures have started with "watch this!" or "I dare you"... several of which could have left a permanent mark of two (OK, a couple of scars actually did).    ;D

I've no doubt posted it somewhere in the preceding 25 pages, but tattoo removal is:  more expensive than the original ink;  requires several sessions that all hurt more than getting the ink;  and doesn't remove green ink, so you may have spots remaining.
