Getting a tattoo is serious business; you need to go to reputable, clean tattoo parlor and be sure your tattoo artist knows what they are doing…after all, a tattoo is permanent! Even if, someday, you decide to have your tattoo removed (see tattoo removal) there will still be a scar…so be sure you know what you want and decide wisely. An exception, and possibly a good way to try a new design idea, is a henna tattoo, which uses impermanent skin coloring pigment which fades slowly over a couple of weeks.
Tattoos have been a part of human life for a very long time, and can be used to express many different messages. Ancient tribes and cultures used various inks to color their skin to show many things; for some it was individual tribal markings, and for some tattoos and skin markings were rites of passage, indicating manhood or warrior status. In modern times many soldiers have tattoos to express themselves, and a variety of individual gangs, groups and societies have their members bear distinctive tattoos. In some cultures tattoos are used to broadcast marital or parental status, and to this day many people have the names of their children tattooed on their arms or body (tip: never put the name of a lover, as relationships do fail but parenthood is permanent!).
