Why do no other units have a tatoo of their capbadges?

One of the troopers I knew (not a mate) had what he thought was an authentic Blues & royals cap badge tattooed on his arm in gun metal brown.
What it actually looked like was a runny chocolate ring doughnut. I have also seen NCO's have their rank tattooed just before they got bust in a "they won't take these fuggers off me " kind of way. :D

It’s so that if you are found in the gutter a little tired and emotional they know which guard room to drop you off at.

Must make it a little difficult if you are captured to say “but I’m only at cook”.

They would be able to tell you weren't a cook when they got you to make them some scoff and didn't burn it (that and the fact that you had just parachuted amongst them armed to the teeth with not a ladle in sight)

Only the paras and marines need to be constently reminded who they belong to. The rest of us can remember our regements/corps with out one.

Having said that I do have a tiger tattoo.

Did once see someone wearing a sleeveless top in mic macs in Bergen in 1991 with a red jerboa and underneath emblazoned the legend
Dessert Rats....must have been a German tattoist or perhaps he was a slopjockey and it was an scoff related irony that was lost on me...

I have a vague memory of that being featured in Soldier Mag just after Op Granby
