TAMPA - The army is weighing whether or not to institute new rules governing where new recruits may and may not have tattoos.
According to reports, the new rules would mean no tattoos below the elbow or knee, or above the neckline.
Colt Baker, who is a tattoo artist at Las Vegas Tattoos in Ybor City, said the new regulations could cut into his bottom line, adding that many involved with the military tend to be frequent customers.
"They're definitely a big part of our industry," Baker said.
Several who stopped by Tampa's army recruitment office on Dale Mabry Wednesday indicated they did not think the policy would be too prohibitive.
An army recruitment spokesperson told ABC Action News that the army could not yet officially comment, since a decision had not been made concerning the regulations.
