Happy 4th of July! A lot of us are getting in the patriotic spirit with firework GIFs and festive food. But you know what? Celebrating 'merica doesn't only have to happen once every July. These people are showing off their patriotism year round!

Having an eagle or a flag tatted onto your body is a pretty decent way to show off that American spirit, eh? That's why we think it's all straight-up awesome. Although they're extreme, this ink just screams "America rules." Check out 10 of our favorite patriotic 'tats.
