Olympic Ink – Olympians Tattoos
Hey gang! The Olympics is a time to root for your team and take pride in your nation. A distinct piece of Americana is tattooing, it’s a part of the American subculture. Figures that have shaped the American identity have always been closely linked with tattooing from proud sailors, to bikers, to athletes. And these days ink is becoming more and more prevalent and accepted in the mainstream. Now ink isn’t only limited to the skin… email skins featuring the art of iconic American tattoo artist Ed Hardy are now available through MeebleMail.com. Leading up to the Olympics and throughout the games, MeebleMail will be writing about Olympic athletes and their tattoos.
