Tattoos and body art can tell a story that words cannot. No one knows this better than our troops, who when they come back from war, often struggle to rejoin everyday life and relate to those who have no concept of what it's like in war. Tattoos give these veterans an outlet to express themselves and show pride in being a part of something bigger than themselves. Tickets range from $23 to $58.
