Navy relaxes standards on where sailors can have tattoos

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


The Navy is relaxing its rules on where sailors can have tattoos.

Beginning April 30, they will be allowed to have one small tattoo on the neck, and there no longer will be restrictions on the size or number of tattoos sailors can have below the elbow or knee. Sailors who have tattoos covering most or all of their arms also for the first time can be assigned to recruiting offices or to train recruits.

Definitely happy about this, all about good taste though, but the old restrictions were a pain when you want to get a Get underway! In the offing knoweth ye that hand over fist I will fight hard & fast! So batten down the hatches because between the devil and the deep blue sea I will deliver more than a shot across the bow! (You big dummy) sleeve done!
