You'll see both of them in DC and not just among the born and bred locals. I've seen some of the transplants wearing them too.

Yup. I spent most of this past winter in the Twin Cities and I most definitely had one. It helped to a point, but there is only so much you can do when the temp dips below zero AND there is a wind chill...

I was born and spent my childhood in Milwaukee. I have fond memories of it but will not visit because it would be sad for me to see everyone with tattoos (which is the way it is everywhere). I guess it's not so much Milwaukee I miss but the innocent time period back when tattoos were rare.

BTW, the last time I was in Milwaukee was in 1990 for my grandpa's funeral. I remember thinking how sad it was that a non-tattooed man died and would be replaced with a tattooed person . That made me cry all the harder. My prediction was right. I bet the vast majority of those born in 1990 are tattooed by now. I knew what they would do before they were even born!

Yes, I lived in Vegas for most of my life. Tattoos were the norm there before the rest of the country. As for beards, they seem all the more common in colder climates than anywhere that gets hot. I used to have a beard in the early 90s, before it was trendy. It was too hard to keep trim/maintained so i shaved it off.
