Good question. The navy has a different policy than other branches because …well we are the navy. No drug related, racist, sexually explicit, gang related or otherwise offensive tattoos (pretty standard in all branches) now the different part, tattoos visable in uniform (forearms) can not be bigger than the size of your hand closed with fingers extended (picture a karate chop) unless they’re there when you join. Pretty cool right? Even cooler there is no limit on the amount of visable tattoos. So if you wanted to tattoo sleeves made up of a bunch of tattoos they count as individual tattoos not a sleeve. Hope this helps

If it can be seen while in uniform you can not have it.

Secular and anti- obscene
