When we see a tattoo our thoughts might take us to different conclusions about the person. Some will be a little surprised to see the permanent markings on someone else's skin made by pins and needles. Some people would judge a person with a tattoo, thinking they might be involved in some kind of a cult.
But the art of tattoos starts from Africa's scarification process to the Celt's inking griffins and monsters that were later found on their corpses. Tattoos are supposed to remember special events or to honor one's choices. So every tattoo till today has a concept, a very deep rooted cause that might or might not be perceivable by the shallow mind. But if a person thinks deeply they will be able to relate to the design that they got inked on their body.
Tattoos can tell a story and language doesn't matter. From symbols depicting cultural images to words and font designs, if you dare to dream of the design, a tattoo artist can likely create it and tell your tale on a living canvas. It is a constant reminder of something that a person is really close to, and also a constant inspiration for people who is pursuing their passion.
Tattoos are a way through which one can celebrate life and choices; to pay respect and tribute to life's purpose and companions. They have the artful ability to speak volumes about the kind of life a person has lived.
A picture speaks a thousand words and this is the reason many people chose to remember those they love and honor traditions in life.
Things to Keep in Mind before getting inked
A tattoo is a permanent piece of art on the skin, so before you get inked proper consideration should be put into the piece to avoid the chance of any future regrets. If you rush you are likely to get your tattoo removed, so don't be so quick to choose the design and the concept. One should give a lot of thought about the design that he/she wants to get inked on their body.
The design is yours so take decisions accordingly and it's going to stay till you exist. It's a part of you. Make it count! -Benja
