37. Freedom Army Tattoos
These army tattoos represents soldiers who have given their lives and those who are willing to give their life for the rest of us to enjoy the freedoms they fight for. Freedom is not free and the price is shown here in the well shaded skulls wearing military helmets and flanked by a rifle on one side and a grenade on the other. Clean lines and nice highlighting define this work, and it is a bold, clear brand to remind both wearer and beholder that the cost of freedom is a very high one indeed.
36. Army Aircraft in Battle Tattoo
An Army fighter plane on a mission fires it’s guns in all directions and drops its payday of bombs, devastating targets below in this interesting war tattoo. “Onward to victory” is the bold slogan emblazoned on the plane’s side complete with pin up girl for good measure. I love the intense injection of yellow, orange and red in the gunfire flash and the explosions coming from the ground below, giving these focal points a bold blast of color that gets attention drawn to the art. Even coloring throughout the rest of the tattoo gives it a really smooth look and the clever shading and highlights on the propellers really add a sense of movement to the whole piece. A unique army tattoo that is clean and reads easily despite there being a lot going on, and a great inscribe that brings the battle of the skies to flesh canvas.
35. Vietnam Marine Corpsman Tattoo
In 1965 the Marine Corps medical battalions arrived in Vietnam, where corpsman with the 1st and 3rd battalions were called to the battlefield, their role to provide medical support to the Marines. A corpsman was highly valued to the Marines he served, he had the ability to save lives as well as the training and skill to cheat death. These men not only provided basic medical care, but were the first responders to disease and traumatic injuries, meaning they had to stay cool under extreme pressure and remain physically and mentally prepared for whenever the call “corpsman up!’ was made. This army tattoo features smooth line work and excellent shading on the Marine logo and medical symbol, and although it has faded some, this tattoo has survived the tests of time and stands as a wonderful badge of honor for a war vet who’s service we will never forget.

I love the concept of this tattoo which features three soldiers in silhouette form in front of a black and skin tone American flag, it’s stripes made up of barb wire signifying prisoners of war.

This fantastic patriotic tattoo celebrating Army service with pride is well placed on the shoulder and features clean, delicate line work and awesome bold coloring making up a pair of American flags rippling in the wind, and a majestic bald eagle perched upon golden banner inscribed with “duty”, “honor” and “country”. Intrepid red and blue ink injection on the stars and stripes make this brand stand out and wave in patriotic celebration, and although the eagle’s head is a little grainy and the wings lacking in highlights, this army tattoo is well executed and will stand as a valiant badge of honor for those who have served, present and past.

These type of army tattoos, which is also a great cover-up piece, is bright and bold, emblazoned on the shoulder with fine ink injection creating really clean lines and excellent color saturation. Featuring the skull of a soldier in army issue helmet with the iron cross stamped across the front, this is a cool composition that we can see progress into a nice U.S Army tribute tattoo. A soldier gives his life to his country during service and this skull army tattoo does that sentiment justice in fine style.
21. Combat Army Tattoo
This is a great design concept honoring soldiers in battle, well placed on the shoulder with delicate shading work throughout. It features three army soldiers in various combat positions and a helicopter hovering above, providing air support, and although there could be more contrast in the shading of each soldier to make them stand out more obviously individually, the lining and highlighting on this army tattoo is great and I love the way it seems to capture a moment, a split second of the battle, like an airbrushed photograph delicately brushed onto skin.
20. Marines Military Tattoo

Overall this is a great neck tattoo, well placed and equally well inked creating a unique inscribe, layered in meaning and a great way to honor a fallen hero forevermore.
17. Devil Dog Tattoo
This is a unique and really cool tattoo featuring the United States Marine Corps “Devil Dog”, a name given to the Marines by German soldiers during WWI. The moniker, now a motivational nickname for a Marine, was used by the Germans to describe U.S Marines who fought in the battle of Belleau Wood in 1918. It was at this battle that the marines fought so ferociously they were likened to “Dogs from Hell” and soon after the term Devil Dog was born. This brand features a monstrous Devil Dog done with clean lines and awesome color injection bringing this hell dog out of the skin in beautiful form, the detailing in the chains, collar and army patch on the shoulder all adding a mean, savage and ruthless feel to this pretty, pretty brutish tattoo. Lovely.

A sea of boots, rifles and helmets, with United States flag backdrop, placed in rows to look like a graveyard of soldiers lost in battle, fighting for the very freedoms we often take for granted.

Beautiful.

A simple yet poignant army tattoo with a silhouette of an army soldier wrapped in a tattered American flag showing patriotism and possibly meaning that this soldier has carried the flag through battle, its torn remains still around the shoulders of this heroic warrior.

14. Sacrifice Army Tattoo
This is a cool and very moving army tattoo of a soldier bent over on one knee, boots, rifle and helmet before him, being cradled by a mystery angelic wing comforting him in a time of loss and protecting him as he goes on to the next battle. “Honor their sacrifice” on a banner that crowns the piece and “Never forget’ which wraps around the bottom of the tattoo are poignant phrases that remind us to honor and respect those who have given their lives, and to never forget the sacrifice that our soldiers are willing to make for our freedoms. The lining work on this army tattoo is wonderful and defines the inscribe, and the shading is perfect, coupled with lovely highlighting this is a stellar piece, heavy in meaning and a clearly defined brand that commemorates U.S. army soldiers, both those who have fallen, and those who are still fighting the good fight.

A classic army combat medic tattoo with the caduceus ( two snakes winding around a winged staff ) complete with two machine guns crossed at the base to symbolize an armed warrior on the battlefield as well as a medic there to aid injured soldiers. Lining is great on this brand, and shading equally good, and I really like the red-pink hue surrounding this combat medic inscribe making it stand out in contrast to the heavy black ink and the pale skin canvas. All in all, an excellent army tattoo honoring the combat medic as one of the most important factors in battle.

5. WWI Remembrance Army Tattoo
This is a beautiful WWI memorial tattoo featuring an army soldier standing above the grave of a fallen comrade, while a poppy in watercolor tone bleeds into the skin around the soldier creating the sky and clouds in spectacular form. The poppy has long been a symbol of remembrance for the sacrifices made in past wars, this is because the Scarlet Corn Poppy grows throughout western Europe and during the Napoleonic wars throughout the 19th century the bare lands were turned into fields of blood red poppies growing around the bodies of fallen soldiers. This would later occur again in 1914 when the fields were once more torn apart as WWI raged through Europe. Thus the poppy is a beautiful symbol of the fallen and of something exquisitely pretty growing out of the death and destruction. A gorgeous tattoo, elegant, insightful and a beautiful piece that wearer will treasure through life and take to grave with pride.
4. U.S Army Helicopter Tattoo
3. Gas Mask and Flag War Tattoo
A very cool chest and shoulder tattoo, well placed and featuring a ruffled American flag on the shoulder fading into a pair of fighter planes and then the ink falls onto chest with a gorgeous gas mask with a bomb blast reflected in yellow eye shields, inked to perfection and shaded with finesse giving it three dimensional perspective. This is a beautiful bold brand showing the horrors of war alongside unbridled patriotism and the will to keep fighting the good fight. A special army tattoo done with flair and heart that both wearer and artist can be very proud of.
2. Unknown Soldier Military Tattoo
A stunning back tattoo with the insignia for the rank of Master Sergeant, the bronze star medal and an Airborne combat patch surrounded by the American flag across the shoulders. In the central lower back region is a coffin marked with the words ” Here rests in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God” to show the ultimate respect to, and the honoring of those soldiers who have been lost that are nameless, those unknown soldiers who gave their lives so that others may live in peace. This is an amazing inscribe with beautiful lining and shading work throughout that remembers the unknown soldier in supreme fashion and incredible style.
A beautiful and inspiring army tattoo with a soldier fully clad in army fatigues, gloves, hood and gas mask, clutching a pretty flower, a symbol of peace despite chaos. This tattoo features amazing lining and absolutely flawless shading work giving this brand an airbrushed look and a hyper photo realistic effect bringing it into the number one spot. A poignant piece reminding us all that where there is war, beauty stills grows and flourishes in spite of the devastation caused by man. Nature reminds us to keep imagining a perfect world where there is no war, no suffering, and instead a magical place where the possibilities are endless. Gorgeous ink and a wonderful message.
