Earlier this week, I found a soldier's blog post courtesy of Mrs. G, which I found interesting. SGT Danger posted photos of soldier tattoos and asked them what their tattoos represented. The post reminded me of a conversation I had with a good friend a couple of years ago. My friend got a tattoo when her husband was deployed and we were talking about radical changes that we sometimes make during a deployment or long separation (going from brunette to blonde, cutting our hair off, getting a tattoo, etc.). Not that tattoos are radical, mind you, but it's an interesting topic.
Here's what tattoos symbolize to the these soldiers (complete with great photos). Have you done anything that you wouldn't ordinarily do, radical or not, during a separation? If so, what did it symbolize?
