The United States Marine Corps has a rich heritage that is celebrated in tattoo designs. It is a matter of pride and honor to have the USMC eagle and the globe inked into the design. The classic design is extremely bold and confident, and showcases the pride of an US Marine. Many tattoo designs use the anchor and other related elements to make the tattoo more interesting. Sometimes people add personal touches to make the USMC tattoo unique while retaining the basic elements.
The powerful eagle, the traditionally styled USMC name, and the globe can be combined in different ways to showcase US Marine bravery. While many designs are inked in black with varying shades you also get to see USMC Tattoos with the American flag colors as a part of the design. The forearm, the upper back, and the side of the body are a few common places where USMC Tattoos are inked. From the devil dog, to the USMC motto, to a graphic design style depiction in red and black, to angel wings, to a skull, there are plenty of elements that are used to make stunning USMC tattoo designs. You can see designs ranging from simple stylized representations using single lines, to very complex pictures made using a variety of colors and shades for rich 3D effects. Sometimes special text messages connected to the USMC are used in the design, and the insignia also appears in Marine tattoos that celebrate the passing of a fellow Marine. Take a look at these impressive tattoo designs.
