The rule constantly changes, so there is no way to tell what it will be like in 3 years. I just recently got out of the Coast Guard, and last I heard they canceled the lenient tattoo policy again. I was in the military for 8 years, and they changed it at least 5 times.

If you're really stressing about it, tattoos are allowed in non-visible areas (i.e. not on the lower part of the arm or calves)
