Miss Kansas shows off her ink

In this Tuesday Sept. 10, 2013 photo, Theresa Vail, Miss Kansas, takes part in the swimsuit competition during the first night of the Miss America Pageant at Boardwalk Hall, in Atlantic City, N.J. Vail isn't looking to shock the nation at the 2014 pageant, but she is trying to empower women to overcome stereotypes and break barriers, she wrote on her blog. Vail, who is competing as Miss Kansas in the 93rd edition of the pageant, announced in the blog post that she will have her two tattoos visibly exposed during the competition. She is believed to be the first contestant in the history of the pageant to do so.
