Veteran Ink would like to share the story behind your tattoo. We understand that many members of the military have tattoos that hold deep profound meaning. This could be anything from a life-changing experience or honoring soldiers who are not here to tell their stories. Your tattoo and the story it represents might be able to help, inspire, or bring awareness to a great cause.

We know sharing can be painful in many cases. Some of the Veterans who have submitted their tattoos have found that our website is a therapeutic outlet. If you feel the time is right, we encourage you to tell your story. Your story could change another Veteran’s life.
