Trish Ward Chicago flag tattoo

From the Chicago Flag Tattoo inbox comes Trish Ward and her tattoo:

Trish: A friend told me about your web site and I was delighted to see it! I am a life-long Chicago woman, born and raised here. I am 49 years old and work as a critical care nurse. On my last birthday I got this tattoo. I gave careful thought to what I wanted, as this is my first one. But I knew it had to be Chicago themed. To me the flag was perfect: simple, recognizable, beautiful. I know these flag tattoos are not rare, ( Your web site proves that!) but I feel what makes mine truly my own was the phrase I added: “My home my heart”. I love my hometown so much and I truly never feel settled unless I’m here where I belong!

I got this around the corner in my hood, Uptown, at the Tattoo Factory.

We love all sorts of Chicago-related tattoos and love interviewing the people who have them. If you've got one or know someone who does, please let us know at tats@chicagoflagtattoos.com to arrange an interview.

If you just want to send in a photo, we always love to know:

  • What is about Chicago that made you want to get your tattoo?
  • Where did you get it done?
  • May we use your full name on the site?
  • If possible, we'd love to see a photo of you and not just your tattoo. Check out some of the interviews on the site to see what we mean.
