~I am the architect of my own distruction~
Tattoos have a long history that goes back much further than today’s bikers and rock stars. Ancient Maori tribes of New Zealand tattooed the faces of their warriors. The more tattoo ink you had on your face, the higher up you were in the social hierarchy. Then, of course, there’s the anchor tattoo—the traditional mark of sailors who had crossed the Atlantic Ocean.
Today, people from all walks of life get tattoos, in numerous styles and colors. And they rely on the talent and steady hands of tattoo artists to apply this permanent artwork to their bodies.
