On Wednesday, the new Air Force policy on tattoos became official.
The new requirements include doing away with the “25 percent” rule for tattoos on the chest, back, arms and legs.
The rule said “Air Force members (were) not allowed to display excessive tattoos that would detract from an appropriate professional image while in uniform,” but the armed forces branch announced updated guidelines last month.
The new rules apply to all members of the Air Force, Reserve and Guard components.
The directive also impacts tattoos on hands and on the neck and head.
