A new Marine Corps policy regarding where Marines can get tattoos, could soon be threatening the tattoo industry in Marine base towns like Jacksonville.
We checked out Odyssey Tattoo shop in Jacksonville where business has been steady, 95 percent of their clients are Marines trying to get inked before Monday. That's because on April first, the Marine Corps is banning sleeve and large tattoos -- basically anything visible in workout gear. Marines who have sleeve, forearm or leg tattoos now will be grandfathered in under the new policy. Marines will be required to have their existing tattoos photographed by their commanding officer, to make sure they are obeying the new guidelines.
