Tattoo as a symbol of time

I just don’t know any other sign which could characterize our times better than tattoo. It looks like today almost every second one has tattoo on their bodies and I guess another part of mankind is going to get it.

You know, this is some tough stuff. For instance, statistics show that twenty-four percent of Americans between 18 and 50 are tattooed; that’s almost one of four. In 2011 $1.65 billion was spent in the U.S. on tattoos. Below is a link that gives further detail on statistics about tattoos in the U.S.

People adorned themselves with tattoo for a long time now. Thee did it in Bronze Age, in Pazyryk Culture, in ancient Egypt. Archaeologists found that people use tattoo skills in different kind of cultures around the world, whether it’s Japan, China, New Zealand, India or America. A five thousand year old tattooed man, named ‘ötzi the ice man’ was discovered on a mountain between
Austria and Italy in 1991.

Regarding celebrities, we know how they love to make tattoos then demonstrate it on public. I love tattoos too and especially I love when it is a form of personal expression.

Actually tattoo is pretty darn hot in my opinion. Especially when it is visible while you’re walking along the street in bikini and have on your hair bandeau top. However a tattoo is a true poetic creation, and is always more than meets the eye.
