Step one, make the army suck even more.

Step two, watch as troop numbers dwindle even more.

Soldiers have tattoos. DEAL WITH IT.

"Hua? ok to be gay but tats is a no go? US has gone to hell."

Fantastic.  False equivalency at its finest.

You'll also note that the new regulations don't mention tattoos that denigrate people for their sexual orientation.

Extremist philosophies, organizations, and activities are those which advocate racial, gender, or ethnic hatred or intolerance; advocate, create, or engage in illegal discrimination based on race, color, gender, ethnicity, religion, or national origin

The Navy documented all of my son's tattoos before he entered.  He had 4 all concealable with a short sleeve shirt.  Of course he added one large one after he entered.  Semper Fortis.  Semper on one side and across his ribs, and Fortis on the other side.

Ironic, considering I have full sleeves but no one at my white collar job knows about it, hat with the professional dress code and all. I guess if you work at the mall your forearm tattoos might be visible...

So wait a minute, since I have ink on my forearms, I shouldn't be required to pay taxes. WHY THE HELL DO I HAVE TO PAY TAXES? THE CHART LIED TO ME!

I'm fine with people having tattoos. It lets me pre-judge them without knowing a thing about them... and I'm usually right. It's the people without tats where I have to actually pay some attention to form an opinion.
 
2013-09-23 07:33:02 PM
Well this is jacked up retarded.   They are going to outlaw any tattoos in one of the absolutely safest (job-wise) places to get a tattoo, the ankle...   This is where a good chunk of people get their starter or only tattoo because it is so easily covered up.   I think the army is really just finding a way to lower the recruitment goals in light of the looming budget cuts, cuz this is a sure fire way to disqualify a ton of applicants...

Once "Operation [Insert Middle Eastern Country] Freedom" starts, they'll go back to allowing people with tattoos, high school drop outs, and convicts once again.

Yes they are... Every "badass-wannabe-tough-guy" that has these tattoos are on the dregs of society... We had one in our apartment building, a complete douche and his tattoos marked him as such. The guy was in and out of jail a lot for drunk driving, smoking pot and other violent behavior... had a various assortment of teenage girls he knocked up and wouldn't marry or pay child support to...  went to jail most recently for swearing and talking about how much cops "disrepsect" pot smokers - at a McDonalds while a cop was in front of him at 8am in the morning (also while drunk)... and had loud parties at all hours with all sorts of losers with criminals records longer than my arm.

Ya, those sorts...

She's not hot. She reeks of being severely psychologically damaged, most likely from early childhood trauma. That's not hot.

The dress uniform for women includes a skirt with clear stockings. So same thing for the leg tats. I imagine they're including both genders to avoid cries of gender discrimination.

And I, I walked over to the, to the bench there, and there is, Group W's Where they put you if you may not be moral enough to join the army after getting your strip mall tattoo, and there was all kinds of mean nasty ugly Looking tattoos on the bench there. Biebers. Mr. Cool Ice. Mr. Cool Ice! Mr. Cool Ice sitting right there on the bench next to me! And They was mean and nasty and ugly and horrible misspelled tats sitting on the Bench next to me. And the meanest, ugliest, nastiest one, with the most racist forehead stamp of them all, was coming over to me and he was mean 'n' ugly 'n' nasty 'n' horrible and all kind of things and he sat down next to me And said, "Kid, whad'ya get?" I said, "I didn't get nothing, I had to pay $50 and clean up all the garbage." He said, "What were you tattooed for, kid?" And I said, "To be an individual." And they all moved away from me on the bench There, and the hairy eyeball and all kinds of mean nasty things, till I Said, "And I got a dolphin. On my lower back." And they all came back, shook my hand, And we had a great time on the bench, talkin about ink, Biebers, Mr. Cool Ice, all kinds of groovy things that we was talking about on the Bench. And everything was fine, we was smoking cloves and all kinds of...

All branches are looking to become more tough on tattoos. If the ANG wants to kick me for mine I got yesterday on the inner part of my forearm... Well, it's been a good 13 years. But I'll still have that job that pays more than my squadron commander, so there's that.

Sure won't. I only let those who I want see it. I wanted it for five years before I even started getting it (and have had it for a year now) and it means a lot to me. I'm quite happy with it :) 

Thanks for your concern though <3
