Combat Engineer Bomb tattoo
« on: June 15, 2007, 18:51:38 »
I am looking for a photo of the combat engineer flaming bomb that many engineers have tattooed on their right hand.  My friend needs the artwork for course to put on all the windows.  Any other artwork related to the engineers would also be appreciated. 

Thanks in advance

Note in particular the number of flames on the "Flaming Grenade"

It differs from the Arty version.

Go ahead, be a man and cut off the hand and ship it to him.  Packed on ice, it should last for a bit.

Just cut that patch of skin out, stretch it nice and flat, then scan it at high res... that would be sufficient and he can keep his hand.

Bloody hell!  :o

How do you shrink the image, and have that link to expand it like on others' posts?

It differs from the Arty version.
A few years late, but I found a side by side comparison.
Unlike most other flaming grenade insignia, the Arty and Engr versions taper to a common point as opposed to fanning out into several directions.
