10+ Tattoos Only Someone From Florida Could Love

by Elana

Florida: the state shaped like something between a boot and a gun. If you live in Florida or were born and raised there, then it's kind of like being in a secret group where only other Floridians truly understand you. While most of the rest of the country think of beaches, Disney World, and gators when they think of Florida, you know there is so much more to this unique state than they'll ever realize.

From inside jokes to small tokens of appreciation, these tattoos scream Florida. Truly, you have to be in the secret group to understand them. Of course, it's not that hard for everyone else to understand them either. So either way, if you're from Florida or not, you'll get a kick out of the permanent body modifications people do in the name of their home state pride!
