Celebrating VE Day in the form of Tattoos | Buy Black and Grey Tattoo Ink online 0

Friday the 8th May will mark 75 years since VE day, as the United Kingdom remembers the end of the war in Europe. On the 8th May 1945, Prime Minister Winston Churchill announced on the radio at 3pm, that the war in Europe had came to an end.  It was an emotional day for millions of people, so there were of course lots of celebrations in the form of street parties.  Huge crowds of people dressed in red, white and blue gathered in the streets and outside Buckingham Palace to rejoice.
