15 Tattoos Reppin' 'Hoods Around the World

Would you be down to represent your hometown or state with a tattoo? Rapper Paul Wall will tell you that reppin' your 'hood through body art is one of the most satisfying things you can do, as the hip-hop artist recently got a tattoo of the iconic "Be Someone" graffiti mural located in his hometown of Houston, Texas.

The "Sittin' Sidewayz" rapper isn't the only one to get a tattoo paying tribute to his stomping grounds, though. Tattoo representing cities, states and regions all over the world have been a common design in tattooing for quite some time now. Walk the floors of any tattoo convention and you're sure to spot an LA-themed tattoo or a piece featuring the Statue of Liberty, which is common in a New York or New Jersey-inspired tattoo.

Hit the photo gallery below and check out some similar tattoos reppin' cities, regions and states from Los Angeles, California to Paris, France.
