One of Tulsa's Tattoo Parlors. Tacky but colorful.
Until last year it was not legal to operate a tattoo shop in the state of Oklahoma. Why? This is a very conservative state. How conservative? Oklahoma voted for Republican John McCain by a larger percent than any other state in the union. But now enlightened citizens can get a tattoo without driving to neighboring states Kansas, Arkansas, or Texas. The fact that Oklahoma is even more conservative than Kansas, Arkansas, and Texas is a sobering thought for a liberal Democrat. For all that, it is a great place to live and I love it.
