WATERLOO, Iowa -- We're used to seeing politicians show their patriotism by wearing a flag pin on their lapel, but an eastern Iowa state senator debuted a new way to show his love for the state.

Sen. Jeff Danielson’s arm now features a tattoo of a giant bald eagle along with Iowa's motto: “our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain.”

“This is AmeriCAN, not AmeriCAN’T!  What better way to say it than with a kick butt tattoo!” Danielson told KWQC-TV.
