I am not a big fan of tattoos, but for the sake of fun and for showing patriotism, I let my daughter have a fake tattoo on her face Last July of 2008. I'm trying to instill a deep sense of patriotism in the hearts of our children, even though it's just a trendy thing these days with most Americans. Blue has always been my favorite color, probably because I'm an Aquarius.
There is just something peaceful and relaxing about the color blue (especially sky blue). Some say it is a cool or cold color but I think it feels open and free. Maybe that's why blue is the perfect color for the American flag because it connotes freedom.
