Gunma-chan Tattoo!

A friend recently posted the most amazing picture–her brand new Gunma-chan tattoo! Gunma-chan’s been pretty popular lately (our Gunma-chan’s Day Out video has over 5,000 views!) but this is definitely the first tattoo of our pony mascot that I’ve seen. How awesome is this?

Katelyn Marie recently moved back to America after living here in Gunma. She says:

I look at tattoos as memories of times in my life so I got the mascot of Gunma to represent my time in Tamamura. I also loved that he was at the Tamamura fireworks which I went to and were amazed by. Finally, the rice at the bottom was important for me to include because I rode my bike to and from work every single day through a large rice field. In the end, I also really like Gunma-chan! He’s so cute!

I’ve posted about Tamamura Gunma-chan before, and it really is one of my all time favorite designs. I don’t personally have any tattoos, but seeing this makes me tempted. How about you? Would you get a Gunma-chan tattoo? Or perhaps some other cute character? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to share this post with your Gunma-chan loving friends!
