The word tattooing is one of the oldest art forms. It's an art of body modifications, made by inserting indelible ink into the dermis layer of the skin to create pigmentation. It has been practiced in many cultures and is spread through out the world. Old tradition of getting the skin burnt with a needle (godna), sounds terrifying isn't it? Don't be aghast as in 1970's artists trained in traditional fine art disciplines began to embrace needle machines and pigments provided them with new range of colour, delicacy of detail and aesthetic possibilities, operators adopted equipment and procedures resembling those of medical clinics.

Tattoos have been around a long time but now its becoming a popular trend among individuals. Decorating different parts of the body with tattoos / colorful designs has now become a style statement. Tattoos are just like people, different shape, size and colour. Tattoos speak about you. You can tell how or what a person is by their tattoos. Tattoos and piercing are just some ways of how an individual expresses themselves. In today's fashion world, it is often seen as way of bringing clothing fashion color's and body art together as a form of fashion statement today. A great tattoo is a statement and a style, inking it in your body is a journey, not just a decision.
