Military Temporary Tattoo

In the 1700s, French soldiers returned from the South Pacific sporting brand-new temporary tattoos. This practice continued until 1861 when Maurice Berchon, a French naval surgeon, published a study on the potential medical complications of tattooing. As a result, French officials banned military temporary tattoos. But soldiers can now rejoice, because tattooing is now safer than ever, and members of the military can sport their new temporary tattoos with pride.
