Hare Krsna,

PAMHO.

There is no requirement of initiation for wearing tilak. Every vaishnava must wear a tilak at all times. If you are going to places where you may consider wearing tilak inappropriate, then wear water tilak. But tilak has to be worn.

Tilak has to be applied to all 12 parts of the body, saying the respective mantra while touching the particular part of the body. This is so because by applying tilak, we are acknowledging our body to be temple of God, we are acknowledging the presence of supersoul with the soul. 

Haribol,

Your servant,

Radha Rasamayi DD
