    Navy to Marines (please read, before you go, not another one.)

    Hello Marines,

    I am an active duty Electrician's Mate Second Class Petty Officer in the USN. I have over ten years of active service and my contract will take me out to 11 years and some change of active service. I have as many do began to look at my options as I near the end of another contract and I have began to think that I would absolutely love the challenge of hopefully becoming a Marine. Now with that said I have seen that age restriction is 29 and I will be 31 when my contract is up. I also have a full tattoo sleeve and some other random ones. These are all documented of course. I am posting this not for career advice but for the purpose of finding out if my age and tattoos will be a henderance.

    Thanks for all y'all do.

    Nobody here can answer your questions. The tattoo policy changed recently but I still don't believe Marines can have full sleeves. Best thing to do is talk to a recruiter (they may need to look at your tattoos).

    Good luck and thank you for your service.

    The age thing may be less of an issue than the sleeve, but ask a recruiter. That gets tricky with the inter-service transfer. As I understand it generally, it would be a no-go for getting into the Marine Corps fresh, but as prior service with all properly documented tattoos... who knows. Let us know how it works out, I'm curious.
