Miss America may think she has ink, but let's get real The news media is finding it quite daring that Miss Kansas Theresa Vail has become the first contestant with a visible tattoo. Whereas this may be a "first" why is this news?

Miss America contestant's tattoo CNN can't seem to get enough of this as though they uncovered some sort of scandal. Pictures of Vail are all over new sites and blogs. You'd almost think they'd never seen a tattoo before.

To make this non-new item even more ludicrous, her tattoo is the text of the Serenity prayer:
"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference."

The journalists who find this a newsworthy story may want to check out the Suicide Girls website.

If tattoos become a new criteria for pageant judging, we'd like to shine attention on this young lady who we feel would be a wonderful representative of skateboarding's counter culture.
