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.
