Would a tattoo similar/same to the one attached below lower my chances of being selected?

You will not have a beard, thin or otherwise, in the Legion.
Obviously. I just wanted to state that to give you a visual on exacty where and how it would look. You stated something to boost your ego I guess, duckface.

Just on the tattoo issue. The vast majority of the tattoos you see in photos on legionnaires hands, neck, face and even head are inked once they are IN the Legion. Every tattoo (and scar) will be thoroughly scrutinised.

Aslong as it's not racist or political i think it might be ok. Don't think you have much choice but to simply go and try.. Lee priest is getting his lazered off but it's a long expensive process.

Hello, could a tattoo (non racists or political) be a factor at the moment they select the candidates?
I do have tattoos that ive got when i was young (and stupid), in my chest, back, arm (from the shoulder to the elbow) and leg. I got a couple of them "blacked out" and a couple of cool designs hehe. Could this conditionate me in any way?
I will be in aubagne in less than a month.

I have no tats. However, many years ago, I was tempted to have a discreet commando dagger on my inner thigh.

On Bar duty in HK I came upon a USN Chief who had a cherry tat on his knob. The bar girls in Wanchai considered it hilarious.

Sooner him than me.

Neo-Nazis careers in the French army
July 9, 2020
FOREWORD: the articles in the “Elsewhere on the web” section do not represent the positions of our trend, but are published for information or to feed current affairs debates.

SOURCE: anti-k

M ediapart , July 8, 2020
Mediapart has found the trace of a dozen soldiers and former soldiers who make no secret on social networks of their adherence to the neo-Nazi ideology. This does not prevent them from continuing their careers.
On June 25, 2018, Alan V. explains on Facebook that it would be necessary to stick “a good bullet in the back of the neck” of migrants ... Yet another surge of hatred on social networks? Not only. It is also a national security problem. Alan V. is a young soldier from the 27th Battalion of Alpine Hunters (BCA).
On his Instagram account, the same Alan publishes photos which show him in uniform, notably in Menton as part of the Sentinel mission (Mediapart could not determine the object of the surveillance to which he was assigned, especially if was a place of worship).
The soldier makes no secret of his political opinions on social networks, such as when he exhibits a close-up of a tattoo on his forearm. It says: "Meine Ehre heißt Treue [My honor is called loyalty - note]". Or the motto engraved on the SS belt buckle in reference to their loyalty to Adolf Hitler.
When it delivered its report on June 6, 2019, the Commission of Inquiry of the National Assembly on the fight against far right groups in France had taken care to place at the forefront of its 32 recommendations: “[The ] followed by members or former members of the armed forces or internal security involved in ultra-right groups. "
Auditioned by this same commission, General Jean-Marc Cesari, the deputy director of operational anticipation (SDAO, the intelligence service of the gendarmerie), wanted to be reassuring: "Obviously, there There is no place here for people who convey anti-republican and violent extremist ideas, whatever the ideology that underlies them. " To have.
The Mediapart survey, conducted mainly in open source (that is to say by consulting publications on social networks accessible to all), reveals a dozen cases of soldiers or ex-soldiers (but still in service at the time of some of their publications) which display their neo-Nazi ideology in full view of everyone. Without this having led to their eviction from the big mute so far. The only two soldiers who left the army did so on their own initiative.
When contacted, the Ministry of the Armed Forces replied (see the full answer in the Extend tab) that “among the soldiers mentioned in the [Mediapart] investigation, some are still on duty and the elements have been brought to the attention of their chain of command. "
Article (L. 4139-15-1) of the defense code provides for the removal of executives or the termination of a soldier's contract when an administrative investigation reveals that his behavior "has become incompatible with the exercise of their functions in view of the serious threat it poses to public security ”.
To detect this type of behavior, the security investigation, carried out upstream of recruitment, must make it possible to "rule out any candidate presenting signals, even weak ones, of radicalization", details the report of the fact-finding mission on services public facing the radicalization of deputies Éric Diard and Éric Pouilliat, June 27, 2019. This control is conducted by the National Center for Defense Clearances (CNHD). Each candidate is subject to an "elementary check", which aims "to assess the degree of confidence which can be granted to him". The criminal record, the history are, among other things, peeled. But social networks?
Mediapart unearthed the case of Yann G. who appeared in October 2016, and on several occasions, with clothes bearing the logo of the neo-Nazi network "Blood & Honor", whose name comes from the motto of the Hitler Youth, "Blut und Ehre ”. This did not prevent him from joining the 1st regiment of parachutist hussars at the end of 2018. Since then, neither his quality as a soldier nor the dissolution of the French subsidiary of "Blood & Honor" pronounced in the Council of Ministers in July 2019 did not bother Yann to publish new photos in August 2019 on his Instagram account on which he appears dressed in a sweatshirt in the colors of the prohibited small group.
"By construction, we do not have the means to follow the publications of our 140,000 staff when they are expressed on the internet," admits the Ministry of the Armed Forces. Not all of them mention their military status in their publications or express themselves under another identity. [
] A minority of soldiers express themselves via their personal accounts on social networks or on extremist sites without the Army being able to detect it. The CNHD does have a tool for "screening social networks". But this allows, according to the ministry, that "an instant photo at a given time".

Not the exact link but same
Here's the rest of this article:

Thank you fĂŒhrer", answers an Alpine hunter to a brother in arms
Once the recruitment stage has passed, it is up to the Directorate of Defense Intelligence and Security (DRSD, the military police) to investigate a possible radicalization which could occur within the framework of the service or "when the the person concerned is in less frequent contact with the military institution (sick leave, retraining, etc.) ”, explains the report of the fact-finding mission. The DRSD, intelligence service known as the first circle, can then receive the reinforcement of its counterparts.
The Directorate General of Internal Security (DGSI) organizes awareness meetings with the various army corps. This is to improve the exchange of information on soldiers suspected of belonging to the ultra-right movement. It must be believed that it is not enough. There are still, as he did not like being reminded of a former Minister of the Interior, "holes in the racket".
Among the cases identified by Mediapart, there is Rurik R. This sergeant in the 2nd Marine Infantry Regiment (RIMA) likes to expose himself topless on his Instagram account. His thousand followers are free to admire his collection of tattoos, his Celtic cross at the level of the heart, surmounted by the word "White", as well as the motto of the SS, the same as that exhibited by the alpine hunter Alan . With a difference, Rurik was tattooed in Russian and not in German on the forearm.
However, the army has put in place a device supposed to send back “information concerning possible radicalizations”, can we read in the report of the fact-finding mission which cites as an example sanctioned slippages: the command “does not can tolerate, for example, a "badly trimmed" beard (contrary to the regulations) or discriminating speech ". But what can we say in this case of signs resuming neo-Nazi imagery?
"The army fights against all types of radicalism, assures the ministry. It carries out awareness-raising actions upon incorporation, then remains attentive to any deviant behavior. Any demonstrated case is the subject of a disciplinary procedure leading to an immediate and strong sanction. "
François D. could have been detected before as well as after his recruitment. Two months before he joined the 13th battalion of alpine hunters in September 2016, we see him on Facebook boasting with outstretched arms, making a gesture that is similar to a Nazi salute. His profile is specified on the picture, which facilitates his identification.
And once he became an alpine hunter, François made no secret of his opinions to some of his regimental comrades, like Dylan who wrote him "Merci fĂŒhrer" after having published one of his photos.
According to Streetpress, the Alpine hunter was also an activist of the Edelweiss, the section of the Social Bastion based in Chambéry. Heir to the GUD, the famous militant extreme right group post-1968, the Social Bastion then tried to heal its image by "coming to the aid of the most deprived" while applying "national preference". Its members do not give up the tradition of the punch. In October 2017, François D. participated alongside other activists from the Social Bastion in the attack on a concert by the local anarchist federation. He received a legal reminder. Pending a possible disciplinary sanction, he is still in the military.
Mediapart could not determine with certainty if the legionary of Russian origin Rodion K. had posted licentious photos before or after his entry into the French army. What is certain is that several images published in August 2015 show him making a gesture similar to a Nazi salute in a forest, or even wearing a sweatshirt sporting in particular a swastika. The first photos of Rodion in the Foreign Legion that we were able to identify date from January 2017, which does not mean that he had not joined before. Anyway, these photos exist and did not raise any questions from his hierarchy. In addition, on the social network VKontatke, an equivalent of Facebook very popular in Russia, Rodion K. appears on the premises of CasaPound, an Italian neofascist movement.
Maxime P. and Teddy M. were together in the 2nd foreign paratrooper regiment. The first has left the army, the second still officiates there. The two friends collect tattoos very suggestive of neo-Nazism.
Maxime P. is conspicuously displayed on social networks with a black sun on his shoulder (symbol commonly used by Nazi esotericism, notably represented in Wewelsburg Castle, headquarters of the SS), a kolovrat (double swastika ) surmounted by the slogan "White Pride" on the chest, an Odal rune (Nordic rune notably used by certain units of the Waffen-SS) on the biceps, the SS badge on the wrist or even the numbers " 14 "(reference to a slogan of the American white supremacist David Lane) and" 88 "on the fingers (reference to H, the eighth letter of the alphabet, for" Heil Hitler ").
Teddy M. decorated his body with an imposing black sun on his shoulder, the slogan "White Power" on the arm as well as a totenkopf (the emblem of a division of the Waffen-SS especially assigned to guard Nazi concentration and extermination camps), and finally the SS motto on the chest.
A non-commissioned officer of the Foreign Legion, who uses the pseudo "Piou Turon" on Facebook, appears with Maxime P. and Teddy M. in several photos taken in recent years in Besançon. If this non-commissioned officer is more discreet on social networks than his two brothers in arms, the nickname he uses is inherited from the neo-Nazi group "Loups Turons", of which he was a member in the early 2010s. Sometimes on Facebook, the comments of the non-commissioned officer who hides behind the pseudo "Piou Turon" suggest that his old ideas are still valid. In November 2018, he shared a song by the identity rock group Insurrection called "Fumeur de Spliff", which he added with the following comment: "A thought to all the big shits who smoke spliffs and who call themselves NS [national- socialist] ”
