National Tattoo Story Day


It's National Tattoo Story Day!


Naval tattoos have a long history, dating back to the 1700s. Captain James Cook's voyages to the Pacific introduced Sailors to Polynesian body art. Every tattoo has a story, a meaning. This article from the Naval History and Heritage Command is a great read!


Do you know a Sailor with one of these tattoos?
