As some of my previous posts have stated, My dad is a retired Marine (E-9 after 22 years). For the last 2 years I have been debating getting a tatoo to honor my father and have designed one with the Marine Corps. insignia as the center peice, with dog tags with the years he went in and retired below it with his final rank in the middle of the two. I would like to do this in black and gray shading, no color. My question is this. Would it be improper, me being a former depenent never having served, for me to get this piece done? Should I instead get a photo of him in his dress blues? Would I upset or offend any members of the armed forces by doing this, or would it be a good way to honor dad? Your responses are appreciated, and thank you for your service.
