The UZI submachine gun was introduced after World War II and was one of the first automatic weapons to feature a telescopic bolt design that allowed for a shorter model thanks to the magazine grip position.
Officially adopted as a standard weapon by the IDF special forces in 1956, the UZI has enjoyed a legacy of being admired by everyone from front-line infantry assault forces to rear-guard troops, and is a mainstay among artillery specialists as well as tankers.
The UZI’s instantly recognizable design gives it equal instant recognition among tattoo enthusiasts and firearms fans who are sure to admire your inked nod for an iconic piece of weaponry and art. Although the UZI is no longer produced much in the US, its legacy has been cemented by devoted admirers, collectors, and even creative visionaries. Michael Tompsett’s ‘UZI Sub Machine Gun on Purple’, with its superimposition of three highly stylized UZIs stacked on top of each other with contrasting angles and colors, became an iconic statement and source of inspiration. Instant inspiration for those looking for UZI tattoos.
Your UZI tattoo speaks of the genius that, whether you like it or not, goes into creating superior weapons. The perfect combination of compact size and unparalleled force, the UZI submachine gun speaks of your unwavering dedication to only the best and deadliest.
