Why are tattoos being banned in the military?
With society becoming more and more accepting of tattoos why are branches of the military, where tattoos were made popular in america be banning them? you can be a doctor or a lawyer with tattoos on your forearm but you may not serve your country at a time of war? I could never understand this.

you can get in with a tattoo. Even people with neo-nazi tattoos are getting in, despite a policy that states otherwise.

Tattoos are allowed in the millitary as long as they are not offensive.
And cover no more than 1/4 of exposed skin and not on the hands, neck or face. (ie. having a name written on your fore arm would be acceptable) at least that's how the USAF plays things

They most definitly are not "banning" tattoos. In fact, the Army recently loosened its restrictions on tattoos to allow recruits to have them on their hands and neck. As long as they are not racist, or extremely offensive, you can pretty much have whatever tattoos you want. I don't understand where you came up with the idea that the military is "banning" them. People get all kinds of tatted up in the service. Also, if your tattoos don't meet the standards, you can always request a "waiver" and most of the time you'll still get in. You'll just have to take some pictures of your tats and send them in.

It looks unprofessional for the protectors of the free world to have tattoos poking out underneath their uniforms. General rule on tatoos is, it's ok if it's covered by your uniform.

I just got denied from enlisting because I have a tat on my earlobe. the recruiter said it was because tats look "dirty, and where the military often represents America, it casts a bad image to other countries who see our soliers all covered in tattoos"

Actually many many military member have them as do new people coming in. They have not banned them, just tightened the restrictions on them. Like no neck, unless you Army then only on the back....that's good it used to be none. No more then a certain % on different body parts, etc. You can look up each branches regs on this. The military in general has loosened up about tats. But the bottom line it is about looking uniform when in uniform.

They used to be more completely banned, but now thanks to all the Gangstawannabees and the "alternative" culture that popularized tattoos, they are too common to require everyone bearing them to have them removed. They have always been allowed in inconspicuous places, for example this guy in MEPS with me had Mickey Mouse somewhere that they had us all turn our backs so the MDs could view and verify what it was.

I remember hearing "Yep, it's Mickey Mouse" and everyone busting a gut laughing."

You can have tattoos in the military... As long as they're not seen in uniform. In the military, you're supposed to obtain military order.
They do not feel as having tattoos seen while in the military uniform is becoming of a Soldier/Marine/Airman/Sailor/Coastie.

&The Air Force DOES allow tattoos... I'm in the Air Force DEP and I have a tattoo on the back of my neck. Don't tell people things unless you know for sure.
