It was announced recently that the US Army will be starting a new set of tattoo rules for new members of the Service. New Servicemen and Servicewomen in the Army will not be allowed to have anything visible above the collar, below the elbow, and below the knee.
This rule is expected to go into effect in the next 30 to 60 days and will not impact current members who have this type of ink, as they will be grandfathered in.
We are all for freedom of expression and share this for anyone out there considering getting a tattoo but who also have the desire to serve. Think twice about the placement of your ink because it could soon disqualify you from serving in the Armed Forces. Though the Army is currently the only branch of the military to consider this, it is easy to speculate that this policy will find its ways into the other branches.
In addition to placement, consider what you get. Anything deemed racist or extremist is also not allowed. The drunken ‘Anarchy’ symbol is not seeming like such a good idea is it? There is laser tattoo removal in Honolulu available if its too late or you might consider giving our professional team at our Waikiki tattoo studio a call.
