Let me begin by saying … I would never get a tattoo. That's not who I am.
But all of these celebrities and shows like 'LA Ink' are reviving the craze.
The whole concept fascinates me. What was their mental state? What was going on in their lives? Did they like their bodies? What picture they selected, where they wanted it, why they wanted it, how old were they when they had it done, and how did they feel about it years later. How well did they know and trust the tattoo artist? Were they trying to get more attention by painting their bodies? Or were they trying to cover up their bodies? How did their significant others feel about the tattoo?
But most of all …Why???
Some images are quite beautiful (1:30, 2:35, 2:41)
