Proud USMC Wife Tattoo I got this tattoo on May 16th, 2007 since it was two years to that day me and my Marine were together. It represnts the love and pride towards my husband and the Corps! The ega obviously represents the Marine Corps since it’s a BIG part of our. The guardian angel wings to watch over us. Our wedding date is going down the cross and the cross is a budded cross. The three buds stand for love, internity, and happiness. And of coarse the Semper Fidelis since I’ll always be faithful to my Marine, Ooh-rah!
