Tattoos in “visible parts of the body” have been prohibited under newly-released regulations.

Body piercings are to be banned outright, no matter where they are on the body. Army chiefs are particularly concerned with tattoos that proclaim allegiance to parties on the far-Right of the political spectrum.

Such body markings could damage the image of the Italian military, they said. “They can bring discredit to the institutions of the Republic and to the armed forces,” the army said in a statement.
