My passion is art and my favorite art is that one made in the body. Body art includes tattoos, piercings, expansions, etc. My favorite is the tattoos.

Tattoos demonstrate more that one simple nice picture of a lion,wolf or whatever; the tattoos demonstrate more than one message sometimes. They are used for different meanings.  For example, someone may add the name or picture  of the person who passed away in memory of them. Unfortunately tattoos also can mark a criminal lifestyle.  Throughout history people have told stories good and bad through the body art.  Today all of this is made by a simple artifact.rip-junior-tattooa7bcb456e83f5ec5fd4a8cf7f5fa083esmile-phrase-tattoo-500x336Image result for best artistic tattoos abstract

The tattoo gun machine is the brush of a tattoo artist. 7c87856ea60b75efcb6cbf5b1107e9a7

In my home country of Honduras the only kind of tattoo machine that I ever knew was made of needles for sewing, ink from a pen, some toy car engine and other kind of crazy stuff.  Here in the States I bought my first real tattoo machine gun.  I was like a child at the grocery store. Image result for tattoo machine made at prison

I have made some tattoos for my friends and family. This topic is part of my life; the tattoos are part of my life. Tattooing has been practiced across the globe since at least Neolithic times, as evidenced by mummified preserved skin, ancient art, and the archaeological record.

Before the tattoo machine was invented or even a thought about, ancient cultures used tools like rose thorns, sharks’ teeth, and pelican bones to push pigments into the skin. Natural pigments like red ochre and soot were used to provide the color. Image result for ancient tattoo tools picturesImage result for ancient tattoo tools picturesImage result for ancient tattoo tools picturesImage result for ancient tattoo tools picturesImage result for ancient tattoo tools pictures

    I like tattoos as a form of art when I see them on another person’s body but I don’t like something like this on my own body forever.

    I personally love tattoos as well. It fascinates me how someone can use such steady hands and use someone’s body as their canvas to create magnificent works of art. As of right now I personally have one and I am definitely interested in getting more work done. Although even though I’m fond of tattoos I doo think that there is a limit to them and that too many look ungodly and disgusting especially if they have little, to no meaning to you. They should at least represent of symbolize something in my opinion

    I really like tattoos although I don’t have one yet. Maybe in the future I am going to get one. This tattoo will be something symbolic in my life.
