Dear 100 Hour Board,

Will I get turned away from the Testing Center for having a henna design on my arm? A friend told me I would have to cover it up to take my exam but it's summer & hot, so I'd rather not wear long sleeves. Thanks!!

Dear TT,

The testing center can't turn away people with actual tattoos so it shouldn't be a problem! If they say anything about it (which I doubt they will), I'd just respond with, "Oh, so any tattoos I had before I came to BYU automatically prevent me from ever entering the Testing Center?" That should make them rethink their position. (Or, ya know, be boring and tell them straight up it's henna and will disappear in a few days. But I've had a roommate with bright pink hair take tests in the Testing Center, so they better not turn you away.)
