It's no less crazy than saying that you can't have long hair, everybody must wear the same clothes etc. Individuality and personal expression are not really encouraged in the military.
i can see uniformity, not discipline. The fact that someone has a tatoo effecting discipline i think is a generalization
I can see the argument, but it is ridiculous

I don't know what everyone is getting so worked up about. The Marines banned "extra-large tattoos below the elbow or the knee". The semper fi tats on the bicep are ok. I think that soldiers can handle this. After all they are told when to eat, when to sleep, what to eat and how to look. The marines have guidelines on how to make their bed. They cut your hair for you for criminy sake.
Everybody is so caught up in rights and freedoms and don't give a second thought to duty and responsibility. These guys signed up for this. They signed up to do their duty. You start listening to all of this crying for rights and personal freedoms in the army and the next thing you know you'll have lawyers running your wars.
well i am going to be a lawyer, in law school, and i have Tattoos
