Ask any Marine that’s been in the fleet for more than a couple of years to remove their shirt, and I promise you there’s at least a 50% chance they have a tattoo on their body that they greatly regret. There’s a reason the “boot towns” of Oceanside and Jacksonville are littered with more tattoo parlors per square inch than any other corner of America: because boots with disposable income and weekend liberty make bad decisions.
The boot Moto tattoo is the equivalent of getting your Tinder date’s name permanently inked into your flesh for eternity. Yeah, maybe it’s great now, but after she fucks you and leaves you, you’ll be reaching for a cheese grater to make some corrections to your new body art. When you’ve been in the Marine Corps for a total of 4 months of your new adult life, you really don’t know what is going to be around the corner, or how you’re going to feel about it.
Aside from all of that, it just looks boot as fuck.
