Wearing tattoos was a predominantly a practice for men until the 70s. Tattoos are especially popular among prisoners, military and biker communities. Not only does the tattoo serve as male identity, but the process of acquiring it contributes to male bonding. However, nowadays, tattoos are not just for men because a lot of women are now sporting tattoos as self-expression and a form of body art.

Today, there are thousands of tattoos for both men and women. Gone are the days when you only spot them on men’s bodies. Women are drawn to tattoos because they serve as body arts and a way of expressing their preferences and lifestyle. Tattoos are no longer seen as something that is ugly or negative but as a form of art. Some tattoos flatter both male and female. For instance, designs such as flower tattoos add femininity to a woman. On the other hand, a tribal design could add masculinity to a man.

Before, tattoos receive the smallest acceptance, but now they are widely accepted. Men, women, young and old alike love wearing tattoos. In fact, even kids are fascinated with tattoos, thus the emergence of temporary tattoos that are safe and stay on the skin for a few days.
