Explore the tattoos worn by members of the Armed Forces community and the powerful stories of identity, comradeship, bravery and sacrifice they represent.

Tattoos play an important role within the Armed Forces community. Inked onto the skin of soldiers, sailors and airmen, they reveal powerful stories. They serve as personal acts of remembrance, statements of belonging, or records of significant events and operational tours.

In this exhibition, produced by The Royal British Legion and the National Memorial Arboretum, renowned photographer Charlie Clift has captured the tattoos of serving and ex-serving personnel at military bases across the UK.

These tattoos are a permanent reminder of the wearer’s experiences, triumphs and losses, and commemorate those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
