'This man is a walking history book.
He has dedicated his body to the memory of the heroes and battles of the Second World War. Nolan Holmes has spent four years under the needle of a skilled tattoo artist to complete this homage to British and world history.
Illustrations include battles on the Russian front, the Battle of Britain and the Allied invasion. Beside Churchill and a wartime news report Holmes has now had a memorial poppy added to his tattoo. The mechanic has also had a striking poppy drawn alongside the pictures of conflict ready for this weekend's Remembrance Day.
This Thursday will see the official open of The Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey.
Twenty -six-year-old Nolan has the portraits of Churchill, Monty and even Hitler on his torso. They go alongside newspaper front pages of the time and the work is not without its touch of humour with comic actor John Cleese's classic moment: 'Do not mention the war,' featured.
The Battle of the Russian Front, the Allies bombing of Germany the exploits of The Few in the airborne Battle of Britain and the German invasion of Poland are etched into Nolan's skin for the rest of his life.'

If I were him I’d have Sagman, Bennet, Robbins, Oppenheim and Taft on speed dial. Just in case he needs to file a tattoo removal lawsuit.
Link is off.
I want to get a tattoo next week.
... fairly certain not Hitler, LoL!
Birds and flowers, me thinks.
(I’m a lover not a fighter)
I want one of those removable tatoos. I’m a girl who can never make up her mind.

“When her muscles start relaxin’, up the hill comes Andrew Jackson...”
Nothing uglier than old tattoo’s.
To see a lovely young lady mark her body up with those things is an abomination.
It’s one fad that I wish women would get smart and ignore.
I wish the guys would too. Don't get me wrong, almost all the men in my family have a tattoo - mostly small ones on the arm or shoulder and usually related to military service of some kind.
But a lot of younger guys I see look horrible. Front, back and/or all the way down their arms and legs. It just screams 'tacky' to me.
And don't even get me started on all the hardware they hang from their faces and insert into their mouths.
When did looking like a reprobate become fashionable, anyway?
It's been that way as long as I remember. And I'm no spring chicken.
I'm all for the overuse of tattoos and piercings. Makes it easy to pick out the losers.
Yep, and in some cases, the 'loser' is the business that employs them.
I'd gone to the bakery at a grocery store buy birthday cakes for my twin girls one year, and the only employee behind the counter had so many piercings in her face she looked like a metallic porcupine!
I promptly found a manager and informed him that I believed allowing employees to wear jewelry around food preparation areas was disgusting, that I'd worked in food service, that I was pretty sure the wearing of jewelry was still prohibited by the health department, and whoever hired such an employee for such a position was a brain-dead idiot.
Then I walked out and never went back.
The eew, seriously, so gross girls come to mind:
