So, the lower-than-expected recruiting in the year 2005 turned out to be an eye opener for the United States Army and now they’ve decided to relax their policy with respect to tattoos.
This doesn’t mean that they’ve change their attitude; it seems like a forced decision owing to the increasing number of rejected cases, of course in case of inked recruits. Anyway, at least they’ve realized the fact that it’s not possible to curb the desire of the citizens to join army and also to have tattoos. But you can only mark your hands and neck and that too with non-offensive images.
I think the whole issue doesn’t solve purpose until and unless along with the Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Air Force too follow suit; that will be the true victory for the art. It’s amazing that no one is coming forward to fuel it, may be because it’s the hell-bent army.
