Hi, I just recently received an appointment to attend the USMMA and I am extremely excited. I applied twice so this means a lot to me. Last year September my father, who really wanted me to attend the academy, passed away from cancer. Around the same time he passed i had made up my mind to get two tattoos, one on my ribs of his birthday and initials, the other a bible verse on my chest. I decided to wait until after I either did or did not receive an appointment to get the tattoo and in the mean time made sure to understand the policy that the academy has in regards to tattoos. However, regardless of the policy I am a little hesitant to get the tattoo, although these tattoos are not in bad taste and are not visible when wearing summer whites I want to make sure that these will not be a problem when I reach indoc. My question is in your opinion/past experiences would these tattoos cause a problem for me? They do mean a lot and i would love to get them now but if its a bad idea then I'm all for waiting. Thank you! Also i know this question has been answered before in this forum, but I wanted to ask anyway to get a personal answer.
