Idaho Army Guard Targets Tattoos

All branches of the military have some restrictions on tattoos, but the new Army regulation is the strictest of all. The Army now prohibits soldiers from having tattoos on the face, head, hands or neck. Soldiers may have no more than four visible tattoos below the elbow or below the knee, and these tattoos must be smaller than the size of the wearer's hand. And those full "sleeve" style tattoos on arms or legs -- forget about it. "Unfortunately sleeves are a no-go," said Command Sergeant Major Michael Kish with the Idaho Army National Guard. "Sleeves are no longer authorized"/Scott Logan, KBOI. More here.

Question: Do you agree w/the Idaho Army Guard crackdown on tattoos?
