I love this image. Tattoos and other body modifications are very common in today’s society and yet there is still a negative stigma towards those who do it. Some would call piercings, scarification, and tattoos unnecessary and “stupid.” But look at this. This woman is serving our country. When she’s in uniform people praise women and men like her– our soldiers. We put stickers on our cars, we make signs, we honor them in shows, concerts, and we wear shirts showing our support. Yet when the BDU’s come off she’s just some “unintelligent” young woman who desecrates her body by “unnecessary means.”

All I have to say is try to refrain from judging someone by their lifestyle choices.
