Ah Texas. Where everything’s bigger, cowboy hats are perpetually in style, Dr. Pepper was born, and people actually ride horses to work.
Solely based on my love for Dr. Pepper, I’d say that Texas is one hell of a state.
When it comes to showing state pride, Texans are anything but subtle about it. For example…
This rippling Texan flag

This lovely little arm piece
This tiny foot tattoo
They say things in Texas are bigger but that’s definitely not the case here. This artistic little foot tattoo looks like it should be the logo for something. (Photo: Shrie Bradford)
This state-shaped piece
Here we have the words T-E-X-A-S laid out in the shape of the state. Bold outlines and dark shading add to the detail of the piece.
This Texas-is-home tattoo
Home is where the heart is. This design where the state’s outline takes a detour to spell out the word “home” has been applied to almost every state tattoo out there.
This firecracker popsicle design
This design reminds you of those Firecracker popsicles you use to get from the ice cream man as a kid, only the colors are reversed. However it’s more likely that this person chose the colors to represent Texas’s state flag instead, which also happens to be the same colors as the U.S. flag.
This double arm tribute
Someone really loves their state. One arm T-E-X-A-S, the other, an outline of the state.
