Tattoo Art and the Evolution
We agree that tattoos had been around for thousands of years ago.
All proof can be seen in history and even mummies had ones.
Until today, we also know that man loves tattoos as a part of an artwork. This is also why the makers are called tattoo artists.
Traditional hand-poked techniques were used in many cultures which also part of their tribal beliefs and religions. For example, tribes in Borneo and Samoa used tattooing as part of their passage rite this day. They used it for a tool and ceremony of their history.
Meanwhile, a few master tattoos in Japan still use old tools to make tattoos.
The traditions are being handed down to their next generations.
Tattoos have become a celebration of traditions in today’s life in some countries and tribes.
Electric tattooing was born when the traditions passed to Europe and the United States.
Later, it became popular among soldiers, sailors, and other military areas.
The image might not be as rich and deep as the ones we found on tribes’ bodies.
However, those old-school images have become a trend in today’s tattoo culture.
In some countries, tattoos were related and linked to a not-so-good life.
It was caused by many problematic working areas like a thief, drug cartels, and
other illegal workers who used tattoos to make a mark of where they belonged to.
Today, young people love to put ink on their skin even their faces.
Besides hobbies, some people use tattoos to get better recognition in their work area.
Some people also believe that their skin is the canvas.
A tattoo is one of the ways to turn the blank canvas into a masterpiece medium.
However, even though the era has changed, some people still look at tattoos as a bad thing.
Some work areas even forbid tattoos in their workspace.
More than anything, tattoos have highlighted from one era to another.
