A tattoo is done by marking the skin with indelible patterns, pictures, legends. The artist makes punctures on skin and inserting pigments. Tattoos are a delightful form of art that was once forbidden and looked down upon.
However, tattoos are becoming wildly popular in our present society. Today, tattoos are an especially singular form of art that enables one to be different. It allows you to somehow express your inner thoughts and feelings, makes you stand out, and declares your own self.
“Should I really get a tattoo?” “How could this decision affect me?” These certain questions may plague your mind when you’re thinking of making the conscious decision to get a tattoo.
Actually, there is nothing unethical with it. Particular people and religions may prohibit it but it’s all about expressing yourself.
Why do people decide to get a tattoo and does their life change after that? Find out on the popular media platform Vuuzle TV that features “Beyond The Tattoo” episodes.

TIME FOR TRIVIA!
Tattoos have come to us since ancient times. Even before the invention of architecture and fashion, our distant ancestors applied drawings to the walls of caves, and tattoos on the skin. Mentions of tattoos can be found in all nations of the world, in ancient times tattoos were used as an amulet and as an ornament.
The Greeks tattooed on the skin of their spies, and the Romans tattooed slaves and criminals. Almost all tattoos of that time were the same: they were floral ornaments and drawings in the form of birds or animals. Of particular note are Japanese and Polynesian tattoos in the form of dragons, which were the most popular tattoos until the 90s of the 20th century.
Interestingly, in some eastern countries, tattooed people were treated as saints, because when drawing they had to endure excruciating pain. In Polynesia, tattoos were often applied with a hammer and needle for several hours, and if a person could not stand the pain, she and her entire family were considered cursed.
During the Middle Ages, the Church destroyed the art of tattooing, considering it a barbaric legacy. However, thanks to the sailor Cook, the tattoo returned to Europe. Cook brought to England a fully tattooed native, this man aroused unprecedented interest and soon the British began to apply small drawings on the body. As a result, this trend spread from England to the whole of Europe.
