    At this point, any of you who have followed “New 2 Tats” regularly will have noticed that one of the more enduring themes I feature is Olympic tattoos.  Olympians love to commemorate this life transforming experience in permanent form with body art.  Venezuelan gymnast, Jessica Lopez, is another example of an Olympic athlete who has placed the indelible Olympic Rings upon her body.

    In incredibly youthful looking Lopez (she’s actually 27 years old) is quite the international gymnastics veteran.  Jessica has competed in both the 2008 Games in Beijing and the 2012 Games in London.  She did not medal in either of those Olympic Games, but she has done well in the Central American and Caribbean Games, where she pulled down 2 Gold medals, 1 Silver medal and 3 Bronze medals in the 2010 Games in Mayaguez alone.  In addition to her international participation, she was a also a 3-time letter winner on the women’s gymnastics team at University of Denver, even earning 1st and 2nd team All-American honors her senior year in the vault and beam, respectively.
