The Pittsburgh Tattoo Hall of Fame

Some of my readers quite literally wear their city on their sleeve.


Common sense dictates that if you're going to permanently and painfully allow a needle to etch pictures or words onto your skin, you better be pretty darn sure that you're going to love those things or people in one, three, five, 10, or even 50 years. And you should also be sure that if you're etching Chinese characters onto your skin that they really mean what you think they mean, lest you run into a Chinese person one day and he looks at your tattoo that you think says "Always believe" and asks you, "But why do you kick the buffalo on Tuesdays?!"

I often see Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins tattoos, and I started to wonder what amazing Pittsburgh tattoos might exist out there. So I asked, and I did receive. The ’Burghers featured here are eternally sure of their love for the city and proudly share with us the images they've chosen to adorn their flesh forever. Enjoy.
