Following up on the Army's decision to alter its tattoo policy.

It's estimated to have disqualified around 500 men and women from joining.

Under the new regulations, soldiers are prohibited from having tattoos on their head, face, neck, wrists, hands and fingers.

They can have no more than 4 visible tattoos below the elbow or their knee, all of which must be smaller than their hand.

Anything more than that, you can't sign up.

The Army says the rules are meant to encourage a professional appearance.
