    What I found was...
    required areas not covered by clothing, such as the face, neck and hands, to be covered with matching skin tone adhesive bandage or tattoo cover-up tape.

      Tattoos no longer have to be covered. That was a short lived policy that got overturned when Garry got the boot.

          Even tattoos on the face, neck, or hands?

            Yes, check out the uniform and personal appearance, says nothing about tattoos. The personal appearance directive was revised in October 2016.

                CPD Supt. Garry McCarthy a few years ago said no visible tats; more recently (late in 2016) Supt. Eddie Johnson said they're ok -- if you're a tattoo artist, maybe it's not all the way stupid to get a tat you can't cover with your work clothes -- maybe but probably not -- suggest don't get any tattoos -- especially not anywhere a summer uniform won't cover -- if you get 1 or 2, it/they will make you look like you got a "you have to represent" decision inflicted on you -- if you get more, it's like you're trying to make sure everyone can see that it's voluntary -- and everyone still knows the earlier ones maybe weren't -- anyway, tat policies might change, but tats are inarguably permanent -- even a lasered-off one remains evident as something having been there previously.

                  Yup pretty much. Some officers can't even wear the correct uniform. But then again most bosses don't care enough to write up officers. Unfortunately there is not much enforcement on our uniform standards and there are very few inspectors city wide. I personally think neck tattoos are disgusting, no matter what you do for a living.

                    CPD cant afford to be too picky when only 50 people show up on day one. Clearly visible head and hand tats are common occurance.

                      They can be picky as much as they want. They have a **** ton of people lined up. They may be backlogged in the process but they have options. Dont let a small class fool you. Thousands of folks are still waiting and thousands more will be taking the test next weekend

                        Pretty much. We had a dic (meritorious, of course) that had the "Sideshow Bob" hair thing going on. Commander twice told the Sgt. to tell him to cut the hair. Sgt, who was afraid of his own shadow wouldn't, so the Cmdr. had to tell him herself. Personally, I never gave a shiate about most tats, as they were military, personal, etc. But the up the neck stuff looked like crap. Hey, there was one Sgt. that sported his 6 point star with "GD" under it on his arm.

                        And luckily, Monty, who's not the Police knows all about the tattoo policy for some unknown reason.

                            Welcome to the Chicago Police Department! Face/neck/full sleeve Tattoos and gang bangers are welcomed; just don't you dare take police action because you'll get thrown under the bus, stripped, and left without a pay check.
