This year's winner is

Men's Tattoo Parlor

Griggs County Cate Center, Cooperstown, ND

Submitted by Jodi Rae Ingstad


In this day I had taken a men's only group of veterans out to eat and drive around looking at crops. 

After enjoying burgers and fries I saw the tattoo parlor. 

I secretly spoke to the artist and his wife to see if we could bless them with rub on tattoos but pretend the ink gun was doing it. 

The fellas enjoyed the independence of choosing what to get inked. 

They cherished the commaraderie of experiencing this together and they enjoyed the biology of just being dudes on that day!
