Disappointing New Tattoo Policy for America

In an effort to encourage a more “professional appearance,” the Army has recently implemented a new policy on tattoos that tightens standards for new recruits. Since its inception, hundreds of new recruits are being rejected from joining the Army.

“At STICK Tattoo Company, we support the right of our troops to bear body ink,” said STICK Tattoo Co. President and Owner, Damian Ferek. “Many of these troops sport patriotic ink that speaks volumes about their personal pride and love for this country or their unique experiences while fighting for our freedom.”

According to the new rules, troops are prohibited from having tattoos on their head, face, neck, wrists, hands and fingers, and they’re prohibited from having more than four visible tattoos below the elbow or knee.
