A series of photographs featuring tattoos of IUPUI students who are either past or present members fo the U. S. military service.
This series of photographs was created in 2017 as a collaboration between IUPUI’s Office for Veterans and Military Personnel and John Herron photography students, Shelby Flora and Zach Carrico. Each portrait features tattoos of past and present U.S. service members at IUPUI, which has the largest military related student population of any college campus or university in Indiana.
Tattoos in the military are slightly taboo. Any ink that can be seen in the most visible places such as the face, neck, wrists, hands, or fingers is against regulation. But that hasn’t prevented veterans and active service members from permanent self-expression to symbolize their service and love of country.
