Did you do anything naughty while serving?

I got a tattoo on my mission. At one time, there were a bunch of us who went out and got them. One of the elders felt guilty and confessed his “sin against God.” It was quite comical'the missionary got a tattoo of the CTR shield, and I guess he felt like he did not Choose the Right. But when I was one month away from the end of my mission, my guilt started to get the best of me. So I confessed to my mission president who proceeded to treat me like I committed the worst sin ever. He tried his best to get me sent home but the higher ups allowed me to finish honorably. I did, however, have to get tested for AIDS, which was part of my repentance process.
