Air Force Ink: A cultural evolution

Senior Airman DelAngel, 432nd Wing administration journeyman, displays his tattoos Jan. 18, 2017, at Creech Air Force Base, Nev. As of Feb. 1, 2017, a new tattoo policy has taken effect as a result of the Air Force’s efforts in broadening the pool of applicants and retaining Airmen. DelAngel believes his ethos, ‘Eat or starve,’ represents his hard-working mentality and culture. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class James Thompson)
