No trick. Did you hear the bell ring too?

I am very surprised at this policy! I'd think tats were fine for any branch of the military as long as this rule was not violated

"Any tattoos that are racist, sexist, drug-related, vulgar, anti-American or are associated with any extremist group or gang are already not permitted on Marines."

I hate tats but for someone in the military I think they are ok. I guess Kat Von D ain't gonna be a Marine huh?

And Al.... you owe me a new set of eyes.

Can't say about anyone else, but I clicked on the link and looked. Then I closed the page and less than ten seconds later the image was gone from my mind. It was pretty easy to let go -- as it was not easy on the eyes. That is not an image I want to carry around.

One of the servers at our most regular restaurant (once a week place for us most of the year) wears long sleeves -- even when it is 110 degrees here. One can only suspect why. It probably wouldn't matter to us (unless it was really objectionable -- which is highly subjective), but must be a company policy or something like that.

Edit to add:
The grandson and Eagle -- I have no idea. Maybe they passed on one they should have kept.

Did anyone notice what the security guy is doing on the background.

The tattoo thing has gone to extremes (IMO).

I don't think the boy is devastated. I think he is being educated.

I agree.

IMHO, it's just a way for younger folks to "be unique". However, if everybody does it (or a great majority, today) how unique are you?

Reminds me of the natives that use "lip plates" or the Karen people who extend their necks by using neck rings...

That reads suspiciously like "C'mon in, the water's fine!"

Saw a place down in Cathedral City California that had one store-front advertising cosmetic tattoos (eye and lip liner, dunno what else), regular tattoos in the next store front, and tattoo removal in the third. I'm convinced it was all one owner as the signs looked pretty similar. Good business plan.

Update:
Since grandson was rejected by the Marines due to tattoos. SIL (former Marine and ex recruiter) has been talking to numerous contacts to no avail. SIL and grandson went together to see the local recruiter and they got stonewalled. SIL talked to them about requesting a waiver but recruiter said rules are very strict now and he refused to send it up the chain for a formal rejection. SIL also called a couple friends in PA where he enlisted. Talked about traveling to PA and enlist there. No dice. So it looks like grandson will now be going into the Navy. He passed all the tests and now is waiting for a phone call for the date to enlist. The Navy offered him some kind of deal where they would send him to school but he's not interested in school. He's sick of school. I'm sick of him and his attitude. He's 25 and is sick of school and hates work. He's just getting started in the workforce (??). Told him to look forward to fifty more years of being fed up with the world.

If anyone wants to chime in here, I'd love to hear what you've got to say;
however, I'm tired of talking about it and won't be posting anymore on this thread. I'll gladly read your posts and thoughts. Thanks for listening.

I of course klicked on the link - and my eyes went went imediately to the chick in back of the guy with the Security T shirt - being a dirty old man with functioning radar - the hearts on her ?? would pass muster at Hooters.

heh heh heh - it's a test right? Pick out the set(with the heart) hiding at the edge of the picture. I've seen that the current economy allows the military to be picky. A friend's grandson was rejected by the Marines for fighting(some minor fines involved) with his Girlfriend in public. However he is now Combat Infantry in an Army Styker brigade.

Sounds like he has an attitude that the Navy will take care right away. If he makes it he will be a better person when he gets out. Not sure he will make it with that type attitude though. I wish him luck because he will need it. I hate Tattoo's but that is me. He could always have the tattoo removed then enter the marines. Tom

Maybe the Marine recruiter picked up on the attitude.

I'm really glad the Navy didn't hold the tattoo against his enlistment and hope when you see him for the first time after his enlistment starts that you'll see some changes in him.

The lack of sounds p/b/m in some languages has been attributed to the use of such labrets (since those sounds require bringing the two lips completely together). And
Quote:
Archeological evidence indicates that labrets have been independently invented no less than six times, in Kamchatka (8700 BC), Iran (6400 BC), the Balkans (5000 BC), Sudan (3700 BC), Mesoamerica (1500 BC), and Coastal Ecuador (500 BC)[1].
