War Themed Tattoos that Soldiers Wear

Soldiers carry with them the deep scars of battles they have fought. You can often identify them by war themed tattoos that they wear on their body. Tattoos based on the theme of war are also known as military tattoos. Earlier, military tattoos used to be compulsory. Nowadays, though it is not compulsory, many soldiers have one or a few war themed tattoos.

Soldiers also get tattoos in memory of their friends and comrades who fought side by side with them. Memorial Day tattoos are commonly found inked on the bodies of patriots, survivors, family members with members in the militia and veterans.

Common Elements Represented in war Themed tattoos

Poppy flowers recur in war themed tattoos and Memorial Day tattoos as remembrance for soldiers and heroes. The eagle with American flag is commonly tattooed on members of the navy. Other than that, scenes from battlefields can be found tattooed on backs, shoulders, arms and sometimes on the chest.
