Miss America's Sgt. Theresa Vail is first contestant to expose tattoos "Why am I choosing to bear my tattoos?" says Vail, an Army dentist. "My whole platform is empowering women to overcome stereotypes and break barriers. What a hypocrite I would be if I covered my ink. How can I tell other women to be fearless and true to themselves if I can't do the same? I am who I am, tattoos and all."
Soldier: Army Reserve Drill Sgt. Victoria Parker, 27, shares her a tattoo memorial across her left bicep to five of her fallen comrades in a new exhibit titled Vet Ink: Military-Inspired Tattoos
Army strong wife. I got this tattoo yesterday. My fiancé is in Afghanistan. Sometimes the deployment gets tough. You have to be strong, not just any strong, ARMY STRONG. The sideways 8 represents infinity. Meaning that I will remain army strong for ever. I will never give up. The army is my life now. He swore to protect this country, I swore to protect his heart.
Awesome! It started as a small idea and grew. I got every hour of this ink done while in Mahmudiyah, Iraq in 2009. I’m an Army Cavalry Scout and attached to my platoon was a Sniper section. One of the snipers happened to be a tattoo artist. He did a lot of work for a lot of us while overseas.
