What it is
I want to highlight the new image of tattoos, both for men and woman. In 2012 the number of woman with a tattoo in America was higher than men with a tattoo. In this century it appears that almost everybody decorates his or her body with this permanent form of art. I ask myself why there are so much people under the spell of tattoos? Don’t get me wrong, although I’m not a fan of it, I appreciate the art pieces some people can make with ink on body.
Tattoos, first seen more on the bodies of men, become a more and more street image, also on the bodies of woman. Maybe because there are a lot of possibilities to create your own special, identic, original and unique image; abstract tattoos, 3D tattoos with a lot of detail, etc.
Why I think it is cool
It is admirable that people would like to leave something so permanent on the body. It isn’t a choice you make in one second (in any case, it shouldn’t be…).
Mostly, people who choose to take a tattoo have a story behind it. They do this because they want to honor someone are a moment in their life. Others choose for something they think is beautiful and fits in their life. What I said earlier, more woman choose to take a tattoo, why? Not only because of the two reasons I named before but also because it fits in their image, it becomes a part of them, they show it with proud. For all that, a tattoo is also still a sign of toughness (in most cases although; some people just have to think a little further).
So we can also say that girls and woman become more alike men because they see there self as though woman. It takes courage to make the decision to take a tattoo and with the fact that we become more skilled in making tattoos, woman have the courage to make a statement on their body. It is generally accepted, both for woman and men. This is, I think, another example of the fact that men and woman become more alike.
