Not everyone may know the imperial dating system.
All right. The imperial dating system is 10 full digits. 0123456789 M41. 0 being the relative distance to Terra either by physical distance or ease of reaching it by transmission. So Sol system basically. The last 3 digits are the year. 789 being the 789th year of the 41st Millenium. The other 6 I can't remember. Minutes/hours/days maybe. Divisible by 1000.

Full Imperial dating is 7 digits, not ten.

First the accuracy digit. 0 or 1 (I can' recall) for Terra and any place fully synched up, 9 is what you put there if you've been lost in the warp for the last few Emperor-knows-what, and haven't really got a clue what time it is on Earth any more.

The next three digits is the year fraction. Split the year in 1000 equal parts, numbered 0 to 999, ie a year fragment is 8.76h long. (I'm guessing leap years have been done away with.) So for a rough estimate (off by about 10%) just assume each day is three year fragments (6th of February -> year fragments 109 to 112) but to be precise you'll have to start counting hours. Then the 6th of February begins just past halfway through year fragment 098, and ends about a third into year fragment 101.

The last three digits is just which year in the millennium it is, followed by M and the millennium in question.

Odd, I was just thinking of getting a /tg/ tattoo.
I was thinking of getting this in UV ink on the back of my hand.

The only problem is, I have no idea how it looks when it is healing and I don't want it to scar too much (as I want to be employable).

I also considered getting the Emperor's Children symbol on my upper arm but I'm not certain about that.
