Default patriotic tattoo situations

not certain this this is the correct spot for this, but im sure the mods will move it, if deemed inappropriate. so here is the deal. im looking at getting a new tattoo and im pretty sure i know what i wanna get. its something like Aaron Lewis has (the lead singer of Staind) but will be changed up...

http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...gm-X2C6I9XCzUz

its the one on the inside of his bicep, the american flag. the only situation i have is that i have a tattoo already there. so here is my thinking. i want to get it on my right arm, but in order for this to happen i would have to have the flag inverted where the blue and the stars would be on the top right of the flag. ive heard rumors that military use the inverted flag as a sign that they have been in a warzone. now i dont want to offend any military, and i dont want to be a poser. does anyone know anything about this? im having an issue finding any more information on it. thanks in advance.

I think you are confusing an inverted flag with an upside down flag.

I think it would be more patriotic to not get that tattoo.

To the best of my knowledge The flag is "backwards" because your always leading to or running into battle. I would not be offended nor do I think anyone else would be.
