“A pro-Cornyn Super PAC is using a photo of my tattoos to make me seem ‘radical.’ That’s pretty funny to me,” Hegar wrote in a Thursday morning tweet, posting the image from the conservative ad and another of herself flexing her tattooed arm. “You think I’m ashamed of them? They cover my shrapnel wounds from when my helicopter was shot down. They’re a mark of my service to our country. I’m damn proud of them.”
