The RAF has changed its policy on tattoos meaning personnel can display more body art while serving.

New rules now permit personnel to have tattoos on their eyebrows, neck and hands.

However, tattoos on the neck are only allowed providing they are not visible from the front in particular uniforms and as long as they do not extend beyond the "natural hairline".

Single tattoos on hands are allowed if they can be covered by a ring, while eyebrow tattoos must still fall within colour limitations.

A spokesman confirmed: "The RAF have revised our tattoo policy to ensure that we can continue to attract the right people for a career in the RAF and also promote inclusivity ensuring that the RAF continues to be representative of the modern-day society we serve."
