I've been saving his tattoo for today, Veteran's Day, as it seemed most appropriate:
Gene told me a guy named Michael did this tattoo "about seven or eight years ago" and that the artist lives in Florida now.
"Believe it or not," Gene told me, "this is lie, the sixth tattoo he ever did."
This image of three soldiers, two holding up the one in the center, is an iconic one. Gene told me he served twenty-three years in the U.S. Army and Army Reserve.
Thanks to Gene for sharing his tattoo with us on Tattoosday. And a big thank you to Gene and all his fellow veterans for their service to our country!
