What is Tattoo?

What Is Tattoo?

Tattoos are permanent markings on the skin made by way of ink and needles. Once the ink is deposited into the second layer of skin known as the dermis, the wound scabs over and the skin heals to expose a design under the new layer.

The practice is now an acceptable form of body art. Depending on where you reside, there may be certain age restrictions that might dictate the minimum age for getting a tattoo.

Check with an established tattoo shop for local laws or jurisdictions specifying these tattoo requirements. In most cases, you’ll need to be 18 years of age or have parental consent before getting a tattoo. Be thankful, you’ll also likely need that time to select a tattoo that carries significance, anyway.

Whether it be a memorial piece or one that expresses interests, hobbies, or even love themes, tattoos are rich in cultural history and deserve a bit of respect.
