PRIVATES PARADE

Cab driver rejected by Army because he has a tattoo of a PENIS on his leg

A CABBIE cannot join the Army — because he has a tattoo of a willy on his leg.

Kevin Price, 28, got the “artwork” on his inner thigh as a dare after a boozing session with pals.

But when he applied to join the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, he was asked if he had any ­tattoos.

He sent in photographs of the ones on his arm — and the 6ins-long manhood inked on his leg.

He was rejected because the tattoo — visible when he is wearing shorts — was “offensive under current policy”.

Kevin said: “It’s a joke. I was going to be in uniform. I’m not exactly going to run around in my boxers am I?”

The dad-of-three got the tattoo in 2018. He kept it hidden from girlfriend Kimberley, 28, for three months as she was pregnant and he didn’t want to upset her.

He added: “We were about eight pints deep when my friend mentioned he had a tattoo gun back at his. Then I got dared to get a penis on my leg — my mate did it when he was drunk.

“I tried to hide it from my girlfriend. When I finally showed her she was surprised at how big it was. My mum went mad when she found out.”

His Army rejection stated tattoos are not acceptable if they would “create an adverse environment for others” regardless of where they are on the body.

It said: “Unfortunately, your tattoo is deemed offensive and therefore deems you ineligible under current policy.”

Kevin, of Hartlepool, County Durham, will remain a cabbie.

He said: “I don't regret it at all, although I am gutted about the Army.

“When I was wearing shorts in Prague last year, I even had tourists come up and take a picture. It puts a smile on people’s faces.”
