Getting a tattoo is a very personal experience. Many people get tattoos to honor people in their lives. I have tattoos of all my children's names. Some people honor relatives who have passed away. Tattoos can also tell a story, including where a person is from. International Tattoo Day is Friday, and we thought it might be fun to look at some tattoos that honor the Hawkeye state! Iowans are proud of their state and many of them are willing to put it in ink! Whether it's Herky the Hawk or an ear of corn, these tattoos are totally Iowa!

 

Do you have an Iowa-themed tattoo you'd like to show off? Send us a picture of it and we'll add you to our gallery!
