Uncle Sam tattoos

Uncle Sam Tattoos - Uncle Sam is the national personification of the United States and sometimes more specifically of the American government, with the first usage of the term dating from the War of 1812. He is depicted as a serious elderly white man with white hair and a goatee beard, and dressed in clothing that recalls the design elements of flag of the United States - for example, typically a top hat with red and white stripes and white stars on a blue band, and red and white striped trousers.

Uncle Sam images

The most famous image of the Uncle Sam persona was a World War I recruiting image that depicted a stern Sam pointing his finger at the viewer and declaring, "I want you". It was painted by artist James Montgomery Flagg in 1916, just prior to US involvement in World War I.

Uncle Sam Inspiration Gallery - Click here to get inspired! Uncle Sam may want you badly, but he still does not want you 'bad'. A prohibition remains in place against tattoos that are extremist, indecent, racist or sexist -- anywhere on the body. 'As long as tattoos do not distract from good military order and discipline,' the Army has no restriction on how much of the body can be inked. Not so the U.S. Coast Guard. Twenty-five per cent, that's the limit for certain body parts, like the space between the wrist and elbow, and knee and ankle. And the Marines have recently banned enlisted personnel from having fully tattooed arms, also known as 'sleeves'. Members who had the full tattoos were grandfathered in under the new regulations.
