An inspiring exhibition revealing powerful stories of Remembrance living in the tattoos of our Armed Forces. Tattoos play a key role within our Armed Forces communities. Inked onto the skin of servicemen and women, they are a personal act of Remembrance, a statement of belonging or a record of significant events, acting as a permanent reminder of the wearer's experiences, triumphs and losses. The Royal British Legion, together with the National Memorial Arboretum and photographer Charlie Clift, has worked with the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force to uncover how tattooing remains an emotional and meaningful act in our Armed Forces today.
