something like this

But this is a very old sign.

I dont really know what tattoos Polish soldiers have in the present

My uncle has that very same tattoo on the underside of his fore-arm. I think it looks pretty sweet.

I'm getting a big eagle on most of my back with the flag waving in the background.

He should be. It probably represents the hard work they've done in the past to get to where they are today. I would be proud of it. Probably would get a small one on my left pectoral or something.

Hell I just want a family crest.

That's cool. I wouldn't really know much about military tattoos in Poland, but I'm just a fan of tattoos. I don't have any yet, but I'm planning on getting a few. The eagle's gonna be expensive, so I'm gonna hold back on that one for a bit.

Don't let it fool you, I'm Polish, just using an alias.

The best Polish military tattoo you could get is Polska Walczy (Poland fights) as mentioned above. It's simple (if simple is what you're looking for) and very meaningful.

has anyone ever saw a drawing of the old Slavic version on the Grimm Reaper? Not the the skeleton with the cloak an scythe; but the young beautiful girl in all white with a never fading green sprout in her hand. I'd like to get a tattoo of that.
