Navy Trying to Erase Tatoos

The Navy has issued new restrictions on tatoos based on an increase in the number of recruits coming in needing a waiver.

A waiver in the military basically means you have some condition or other negative criterion met that they will make an exception for. For example, you may apply to Officer Candidate School and be 37 years old. Since the age cut-off is 32, you must get a waiver for it.

How is a waiver given for a tatoo? Either it falls within the regulations or it does not. It seems that sometimes the recruit is told he must go back and have it either altered or removed.

Since I got my one and only tatoo when I was on active duty, (see picture) this article was sort of interesting to me.

Dick Cheney has a tatoo---of a shotgun.
