For those who want a powerful tattoo that identifies their heritage a flag can be a great choice. A flag can be a simple representation of your patriotism or a stylized piece of art for all to admire. The flag can be combined with the outline of your country, a motto or a national landmark. Many immigrants will place their mother country’s flag alongside that of their new home. A draped flag can be used to represent a fallen comrade and is popular in the military.
