Both my Dad and I love tattoos, he had a lot and inspired me to get quite a few also, much more then him. He passed away a few months ago to cancer and I'm wanting to get a tattoo in him memory...
Now, he was a carpenter his whole life, with the exception of his time in Vietnam.
So do I get a Vietnam orientated tattoo? He was extremely proud of his service... Or do I get something carpentry relatered? Like hammers and stuff? I don't even know what I could do with that one.

Hey bro, sry to hear about your dad. Mine passed away as well. I got some simple, I got his date of birth and when he passed and full name on my left side around my rib cage.
I think you should do something involving a military helmet. Also maybe his service number. Maybe the type of gun he was using at that time as well.
I helmet hung on a cross with his gun leaning on it.
Good luck bro.Proudly Canadian!

See if you could find out what unit your dad was in,
And get his name along along with the unit tattooed on like a helmet,
With maybe a rifle and a hammer crossed or leaning on the helmet?
My dad served in Vietnam as well,
And I know what it means to him.
