You can see tattoos everywhere, from TV commercials, movies and music videos. A lot of people will agree that the high number of people with tattoos is due to the attempt of covering their scars and a way of expressing one’s self also for memorial purposes. Some would say that tattoos are so popular because of peer pressure.

There are different reasons why people have tattoos. In some cases, people sport tattoos as an expression of freedom, show that they belong to a clan or group, demonstrate what they believe or pay tribute to a beloved. Some psychologists say that tattoos are very popular as art expression. Tattoos are widely accepted around the world. The days were gone when tattoos are only for criminals and prisoners. Nowadays, professionals, doctors, teachers and women are sporting tattoos to symbolize a lifestyle, self expression, art and preference.

Even children today are fascinated by tattoos. Now, there are many people with tattoos that are kind, good natured and friendly, unlike the belief in the past that they are only for harsh, rough and cruel people. Through the years, people have changed the way they look at tattoos. In the past, a tattoo is viewed as negative and evil; today it is considered an art form and a wonderful way to express one’s self.
