Military tattoos are appropriately named and they serve a purpose of unity. For hundreds of years servicemen from all branches have come home with ink done. From the proud eagle of the Marines to the ship's name for sailors, Army had entire platoons get symbolic tattoos from their tour of duty. The air force was in on the tattoo craze too. Often, the soldier has an “in Memory of” tattoo for fallen soldiers to allow their memory to be kept alive. Concentration camps tattooed the wrists of its inmates so they could be identified in the event of an escape. The military tattoos were created with a modified Ball Point pen and they were usually just a basic blue design. It was once a way of life for the armed forces to show their unity by way of a tattoo.
In more recent times these military tattoos have become more colorful through the use of better equipment and brighter ink colors. The most modern wave of temporary military tattoos have been created to allow wives of servicemen to show their devotion to their own soldiers. It is a proudly worn design that is significant to its wearer; something that serves as a constant reminder that their loved one is fighting for our freedom or something that comforts them with the thought of their soldier's home coming. These types of military tattoos are to show unity and pride among military families or to honor their soldier.
These are more likely to be temporary so they can be removed when their soldier comes home.
Maybe the reason military tattoos are so popular is because of the Henna used in making them. The Middle Eastern countries grow Henna for the specific use of creating inks for hair dyes, nail polishes, and tattoos. Both permanent and temporary tattoos can be made from the leaves and seeds of the Henna plants.
Temporary military tattoos are a wonderful way for all of us to show our support for our soldiers, whether you support the war or not. There is a huge debate among people in general as to whether we should even be fighting this war. Regardless of your beliefs we should all support our troops, they are risking their lives every day and every night because that's what they have been instructed to do. They need our support no matter how we feel about the reason we're at war.
