What am I celebrating on tattoo Tuesday?

Dairy Queen celebrated its 75th anniversary on March 16.

I thought I was late to the party, but it turns out that the celebration was early.  The first Dairy Queen shop opened in Illinois on June 22, 1940 – so we can look forward to more festivities.  The company, however, chose to note the occasion by giving out free ice cream cones at various locations on March 16.

The next question is, can I find a Dairy Queen tattoo?

Well, yes . . .




  1. Yummy celebration! I have many tasty memories of Dairy Queen. Miss them. The only one around is in a neighborhood I don’t dare stop in.
