    who would i write to express my opinion on this regulation? my congressman? i think the air force should relax it's tattoo resrtictions to that of the other branches... though i don't know what the other branches say about tattoos, i have seen quite a few service members with full sleeves...

    anyone?

    opinions are more than welcome.

    you should go straight to the commander on this. he does have an open door policy. maybe he do something.:hs:

    seriously, if you want a full sleeve then get out of the AF and get one. obvioulsly you feel that a having a full sleeve is more important.

    You can do it, you just have to get your commanders approval, or you can do as scottiemac said

    The Military is a respectable organization that is representative of the united states as a whole. Its members should not look like punks and thugs.

    one of my buddies in the marines was diciplined because of "destruction of government property" when he got the globe and eagle tatooed on his upper arm/shoulder. so i'm not sure exactly what your talking about when u say other branches are lax.

    /10/2007 - WASHINGTON (AFNEWS) -- Airmen will soon have a new avenue to make suggestions for Air Force uniform design and wear.
    This spring, the Air Force plans to bring online a new Web tool called "eUniform." The site will allow Airmen to submit their suggestions about uniform issues directly to Air Force Uniform Board members.
    "This is really an effort to simplify the uniform board and suggestion process," said Capt. Patrick Barger, with the Air Force uniforms programs branch. "This will allow the Air Force to save money, and at the same time, make the uniform-board process more accessible to all Airmen."
    Sometime around March or April, Airmen will be able to log in to the eUniform Web site through the Air Force Portal <
    https://my.af.mil> . After inputting information such as their name and unit, they can enter in detail their suggestions for uniform design and policy changes. Their suggestions must meet the approval of both their base and major command uniform-board representatives. If the suggestions clear those hurdles, they will go before the Air Force Uniform Board.
    "Using the eUniform Web site will allow leadership to get a better sampling of how Airmen feel about the uniform and Air Force wear policies," Captain Barger said. "We think Airmen are more likely to log in to this Web site to share their ideas than they are to participate in a conventional, paper-based suggestion process."
    The eUniform site does more than just collect, collate and archive every uniform suggestion made by Airmen. The site also allows members of the uniform board to collaborate virtually when deciding what suggestions will be submitted for review to the Air Force chief of staff.
    The Air Force Uniform Board typically includes a representative from each of the major commands, experts in uniform wear and design, members of the Headquarters Air Force personnel community, and the chief master sergeant of the Air Force. In the past, those members would meet in Washington, D.C., to discuss and approve or disapprove uniform changes that had been submitted.
    "Requiring the uniform board members fly to Washington was actually very costly," Captain Barger said. "That cost, coupled with the time factor and inconvenience to board members, slowed down the review process and also limited the number of uniform boards held each year."
    The eUniform software allows board members to collaborate online, meaning they don't have to fly to Washington to make decisions. Instead, board members can spend a few days at the convenience of their schedules, a few times a year, reviewing, commenting on and ultimately making decisions about uniform suggestions.
    "They don't need to come to the Pentagon anymore," Captain Barger said. "Now board members can do online from the comfort of a familiar environment all the things they used to do in person at the Pentagon. This will save both money and time."
    Captain Barger said the time saved will eventually allow the Air Force to convene multiple uniform boards each year.

    i think it is nonsense to say that tattoos do not lend to a professional appearance. when someone is in a professional environment there is usually a sleeved shirt or jacket of some sort involved.

    so much for wanting our input. they are still going to do as they please. what this does is let the base and majcoms filter out what they dont want to hear. they will inevitably receive ideas promoting what they were already going to do. they'll claim that the online suggestion idea was a huge success since they are "giving them the changes they want" and some colonel claiming the idea will get his star.

    damn the system. :squint:

    i heart the military. no joke.

    The tattoo thing doesn't really affect me, but I hate the hair regs, for both genders. Especially since I see so many Col+ officers with hair WAY longer than regs allow but nobody will say anything to them. How the hell is it "unprofessional" for my neat and clean hair to hang below my collar? If it's unprofessional, they would put it in the dress code rules for civilian employees as well. I'm a personnelist, it's not like I'm around machinery for it to get caught in!

    I hate a lot about 2903. Hair, jewelry, body piercings, tattoos, etc.
