Service rules on tattoos have been relaxed
A change to the Queen’s regulations means that body art can now be displayed on the hands and rear of the neck – two areas that were previously banned.
The old policy prohibited excessive markings but this element has since been removed. However, if tattoos are visible on a passport photo they will still be deemed unacceptable.
What constitutes offensive or obscene has also been detailed. If body art depicts a sexual act, violence or illegal drugs, for example, it will be in breach of Army rules.
“Tattoos have become more acceptable in society over the last decade, reducing the negative connotations that, in some quarters, have been associated with them,” an Army spokesman said.
“In recent years there has been an increasing number of personnel with tattoos on visible areas. There is no evidence that commanders have found these to have an adverse impact on operational effectiveness and as a result there has been reluctance to discharge those who breached the policy.”
The amendment follows a review into tattoo regulations earlier this year. It is expected to be welcomed by potential recruits, many of whom have found themselves to be in breach of the old policy when applying to join the Army.

Great!

Posting on Tumblr is like talking to your cat. You don’t know if they are listening, and you don’t know if they care, but for some reason, it still helps.
This might be the most accurate thing I’ve read ever

And sometimes they attack you completely unprovoked.

That too

Pretty accurate.
