Tattoos are a form of body modification, a practice that has probably been around since Ugg hit Uggy over the head with a club.
Okay, bad joke aside, it’s safe to say that people have been finding ways to express themselves on their body for as long as there have been people. Ink and whatnot must be in our blood, we even tattoo animals and carve trees!
In this day and age, body modification by getting a custom tattoo design has only increased in popularity. Celebrities are often emulated around the world and in America it is no different. Adam Siehr from our team has personally tattooed former heavyweight boxing kingpin, Mike Tyson, and Grammy Award winning Rapper T-Pain, who got ink done at 434 Tattoo studio in Honolulu.
People get tattooed for a variety of reasons and here’s what the pros at Wikipedia report as to the reason why:
“Tattoos have served as rites of passage, marks of status and rank, symbols of religious and spiritual devotion, decorations for bravery, sexual lures and marks of fertility, pledges of love, punishment, amulets and talismans, protection, and as the marks of outcasts, slaves and convicts.”
Many people just want to get a souvenir tattoo while for others it is something different, at times it means something more. Regardless of the reasoning behind getting ink done, we will support you and help to make the experience an awesome one!
