Tattoo you: Know the AFI before you get ink

A U.S. Navy submariner, second from left, looks to the camera after getting the word "music" tattooed on his arm, at the Pacific Ink & Art Expo, Blaisdell Exhibition Hall, Honolulu, Hawaii, Aug. 4, 2013. The Navy, with one of the oldest traditions of tattooing, is thought by its sister services to have the most lenient or accepting attitude towards the decorative body art. According to AFT 36-2903, having words tattooed on the body is allowed as long as it does not violate any of the provisions regarding size, content, or placement. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt.
