Tattoos in uniform

Body ink will no longer keep you out of the United States Air Force.

As of today, the flying branch of the military has eased it’s position on tattoos within their ranks. Previously,  individuals with tattoos over 25 percent of their body could be rejected from joining the Air Force.

But as of today, folks with ‘epidermal art’ are welcome to enlist with impunity.

Elimination of the restriction stems from the fact that one in every five potential recruits in the last three years, had tattoos requiring review or that could be considered disqualifying under the previous criteria.
