Alaska is the most northern and the biggest state of the United States of America regarding the territory. The state itself is positioned in the North-west of the North America. It has the naval border with Russia. The capital of the state is Juno and the population of the state is more than 800 thousands of people.
In Alaska tattoos are rather popular. We have counted eight of high quality tattoo shops there, as well as no one of tattoo removal shops and three piercing shops. Alaska has various pricing for such procedures - from thirty-three to six hundred and thirty-seven USD.
Interesting that the flag of Alaska was created by thirteen-year-old Benny Benson from Chignik. There are eight 5-ended stars on the blue background of the flag. The seven of them symbolize the Big Dipper, while the 8th - the Polar star.
The state is bordering with Canada in the east and with Russia in the west. It consists of the continental part and big number of islands.
The state is known as the least populated in the country, however in the 70s here have come a lot of people who have been led by job offers in the oil industry as well as transportation. In the 80th the growth of the population was known to be on the level of 36%.
Due to the fact that Alaska is in the far north it has scarce transport communication with the outer world. In fact it has Alaska highway, Alaska railway and the system of steamboats. Because many of the places in the state are hard to reach, the air transport is very popular here, so almost all cities here has their own airports.
