This Redditor Just Destroyed His Military Career With A Neck Tattoo

Humor

Sometimes you get drunk at the watering hole off base with your platoon drinking buddies and stumble back to the barracks. Other times you black out and end up at a tattoo parlor getting a stripper’s name eternally inked on your ass.


One anonymous Redditor of an unknown sobriety level decided to go a step further and get a full-on back tattoo that extends up to his neck. The problem? He’s in the U.S. Army.

“I got a new tattoo which is extends to my neck and is barely visible when I'm debloused or in PTS … am I fucked?” he asked the r/Army subreddit?

And the replies were ruthless.

“It better be some sick tribal pattern or your CO will kill ya,” wrote user SortaPog.

Others simply replied, “U ded.”

Because the original poster deleted his account and pictures of the tattoo, we don't know for sure if the post is legit. One Redditor managed to find a link to a shoddy picture of the alleged tattoo in question, which appears to show a dark tattoo indeed peeking above the collar of a t-shirt… just the tip.

User RobertFlobert believes it's a stripper’s name, “~$$CHASTITY$$~” to be exact.

In early morning testimony, former Special Operator 1st Class Dylan Dille told a packed courtroom that he had heard the phrase during unit training before the men of SEAL Team 7 Alpha Platoon deployed to Mosul, Iraq in 2017.

In his seven months as legislative assistant to the commandant of the Marine Corps, Brig. Gen. Norman Cooling proved to be an abusive, bullying boss, who openly disparaged women, ruled through intimidation, and attempted to spread a rumor about a female officer after the Senate complained about him to the defense secretary, according to a Defense Department's Inspector General's Office investigation.

"The adjectives a majority of witnesses used to describe his leadership were abusive, bullying, toxic, abrasive, and aggressive,"a DoD IG report on the investigation into Cooling's conduct found. "Some subordinates considered him an 'equal opportunity offender,' disparaging men and women. BGen Cooling denied making some of the comments attributed to him, but more than one witness told us they heard him make each of the comments described in this section of our report."
