"These are guys that are dying in the war," Layton said. "They can fight, but they can't get a tattoo? It's ridiculous."

NO SHIT!

As long as it's nothing that will show when you are wearing your "charlies" (PT gear) no one gives a shit. My friend went to his gunnery sgt. with his ta2 form filled out and his sgt. was like,"Wtf is this? Am I your mom?" A lot of guys in the service are tatooted on their chest, upper arms and backs only. No more sleeves though :(

Army has relaxed their standards!You still can't get them on your hands or neck while you are in but you can come in with them if you already have them.

well I am sure a recruiter is gonna say whatever he thinks you want to hear- seeing as how he is trying to convince you to go overseas for a year (a few times) and ride around until a terrorist decides to try and kill you. Tough sell , imo

I am in the Army, have a full sleeve on the right arm, (and as mentioned above), working on the completion of my full left arm in BDU Camo. I have never been questioned about my tattoo's since basic training. Some of my right goes onto the back of the hand and onto my neck above the class A collar.

its a professional appearance issue with the Marine Corps...the new Commandant is anal about this type of shit.. some special duties you can't get if you can see your tattoos outisde a short sleeve shirt. i agree with that part, a Marine Security Guard standing post at the Embassy in Saudi Arabia with a giant crucifix on his forearm may pose a problem.. but restricting the entire Marine Corps is absurd. good thing Commandants come and go.
