It seems that there is a recent resurgence of people getting Patriotic Tattoos!

Let me explain… On September 11, 2001 when we were attacked by Al Qaeda

and New York’s Twin Towers came down we saw a lot of people getting a large variety of

Patriotic Tattoos in response to this tragedy. When our soldiers went to Iraq and Afghanistan

we saw more Patriotic Tattoos showing support for our troops.

Now during most of President Obama’s term the Patriotic Tattoos have sort of plateaued…even after

Osama Bin Laden was killed there wasn’t much of an upsurge.

However over this past year with the Presidential Election on…..it was like BAM!!…. all of a sudden the

demand for Patriotic tattoos have become the rage. It seems people are actively trying to show their

LOVE of their Country. Where is this new desire to openly show that you are proud to be an American

coming from?!?!?!  And I’ve noticed this Patriotic displays  everywhere…. T-Shirts, Hats, Stickers

and it goes on and on!

My theory is that it stems from anger and disappointment with the way our government has let us all down

and an overreach on our natural rights.  Maybe they see HOPE on the horizon.
