    My lodge requires suit worn by every member at every meeting. I have work long sleeve shirts every time I have met with members of my lodge but when I did my first degree is when my tattoos were shown. Nobody has brought them up tho. I do not have any masonic tattoos but I do have tattoos on my chest,back, and shoulders.

    I am sleeved and was raised with my tattoos visible. I was judged by my character not my appearance. I have visible masonic tattoos and nobody knows what they mean except for one that has received their third degree.

    I have tattoos as well, but nothing Masonic. Wouldn't it be a violation of your obligation by having something like this?

    Nope .its just like wearing a cap,ring or having a sticker on your car. There is no difference. But you need to be a master mason.

    Just know what they stand for and why you are wearing them.

    Our obligations are about the parts that are secret. The S&C are visible to the public at the front of almost every lodge hall in the country are are therefore not secret. You'd need to have a tattoo that shows (something else that we have to be face to face to demonstrate).

    Having an S&C tattoo is about earned versus not earned, not about revealing what is secret.

    That's my point, though. Even this forum often has issues distinguishing what is secret vs. what is earned. Who is to say what is considered secret when there is rarely anything the same across jurisdictions? Also, he said only a MM would understand his tattoos. That leads me to believe the tattoo is something specific from that degree and not just the S&C.

    Maybe run the question by your W.M. and see what he says. Almost every symbol you can get on a tie, pin, etc. It doesn't hurt to ask before being frowned upon.

    I plan on getting an S&C on my arm. I have the attached tattoo on my forearm. Nothing but compliments from my lodge mates. Props to anyone who knows the original author of the snake in my arm!
