18 Awesome U.S. Army Tattoos

You may not be old enough to drink when you’re old enough to serve your country in the U.S. Army, but you are old enough to get a tattoo. Thanks to a revision of U.S. Army Regulation 670-1 on April 10, there are no longer limits on the size or number of tattoos soldiers can have on their arms and legs.

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno said in a statement about the policy, “Society is changing its view of tattoos, and we have to change along with that. Soldiers have grown up in an era when tattoos are much more acceptable and we have to change along with that.”

With this list of awesome Army tattoos, we salute men and women in uniform, and we salute the U.S. Army for changing with the times.
