A Tea Party tattoo wouldn’t be easy to get rid of
Controversial former Congressman from Florida, Allen West, is known for extreme political stunts but certainly this would be one of the most permanent as a Tea Party tattoo wouldn’t be easy to get rid of.
Allen West, former U.S. Representative from South Florida, did a strange thing to pledge his undying allegiance to the Tea Party fringe, making a stop in West Palm Beach and getting himself a bonafide tattoo, according to the Broward/Palm Beach New Times. That’s it on his forearm in the photo above. The tattoo sports a catch-phrase: “Molon Labe,” a Greek phrase, translates to “come and take it.” King Leonidas challenged Xerxes with the battle cry before the Battle of Sparta, and the phrase was revived during the Texas Revolution.
