Unit Tattoos and Body Art

(or things that turn the First Sergeants hair grey)

As of November 9, 2014

 

Throughout history, soldiers have gotten tattoos or added body art that was not something that made the First Sergeant Happy (if the Army had wanted you to have a tattoo, it would have issued you one).  Usually it was an item that displayed the unit Espirit de Corps or indicated what unit the soldier was affiliated with or assigned to. In many cases it was just something that the soldier managed to get talked into during a weekend pass after consuming a little too much liquor.  The troopers of the 545th MP Company were no different and we are fortunate enough to have a few photos of such body art work.

No – this is not a tattoo – it’s a haircut and everyone thought 1SG Stalter would have kittens when this young 545th MP got it, but he thought it was great!! 1983

Female MPs like tattoos too!
