    I know this guy must be some sort of SpecOps for the US… but since when did the tattoo policy in any service allow for tattoos on the hands?! I'm not saying I dont like them… theyre actually pretty badass, I;ve got no problem with them, I'm just well aware of the US military's policy on tattoos, particularly the Marine Corps' policies.

      Actually, the Army policy changed a few years ago. The head and face tattoos are still prohibited, but the hands and neck are okay now (see below)
