6 June 1944, more than 100 000 soldiers from 15 different nations landed on the beaches of Normandy, in France.

The goal was to stop Hitler and give back its freedom to our world. 70 years later, we still celebrate D-Day and these men. They were our grandfathers and fathers, departed or veterans, and many of their descendants chosed to show how proud they were of them by picking war memorial tattoos. Impressive, moving and beautiful, here are 20 tattoos to remember the sacrifice and fight of the WWII heroes. Lest we forget.
