Wanted: Photos of your Philadelphia tattoos

We want to compile some of the most unique Philadelphia-themed tattoos out there.

Maybe you have a small Philadelphia skyline inked on your foot. Maybe you have a massive Eagles-themed tat covering your entire back. We want to see them both.

Billy Penn is in the process of finding and ranking some of the best Philadelphia-themed tattoos out there, and we want to see yours and the ones your friends have. Even if your friend is this guy who has a high-def painting-esque tat of Brian Dawkins covering his entire arm or this person who’s entire body is colorful ink of some of the most iconic Philly things.

There are a bunch of ways you can send us your pics (and let’s try to keep it PG-13, people). Watch your replies, as we may reach out to you for the story behind the tat. Please send us your pics by Friday, June 10.


Snapchat: Add us on Snapchat! Our username is billy_penn or you can save the QR code to the left and add us that way. (When you snap us your tat, you’re giving us permission to screenshot it and use it in a future story.)

Twitter: Tweet us your tattoo photos at @billy_penn.

Email: Send us an email at contact@billypenn.com with the subject line “Philly tattoo” and attach a photo of your tattoo in the email.
