A new policy regarding tattoos on soldiers is ready to be put into place.

According to Stars and Stripes online, Sgt.Maj. of the Army Raymond Chandler says the new rules are just waiting for Secretary John McHugh’s signature.

“Under the new policy, new recruits will not be allowed to have tattoos that show below the elbows and knees or above the neckline, Chandler told troops. Current soldiers may be grandfathered in, but all soldiers will still be barred from having any tattoos that are racist, sexist or extremist.”

Do you agree or disagree with this new policy?
