Shortcut for tattoo addict—Diversified Tattoo Styles

May 27, 2010

Persuing beauty ( no mater internal or external beauty) is our nature existing in everyone’s deep mind. People have always striven to change one’s appearance no matter what will they pay for that , And for millions of people throughout time, tattooing has been one of the most popular forms of permanent body art.

Tattooing ,acted as an art form,has been popular and welcomed in the whole world for so many years .Different religion and region has their differential tattoo art culture and styles.

When you get a tattoo or you decide to finally get one  (cos process of tattoo removal is very long and painful) , hopefully you want one that will represent something other than a cute little bunny or a thorny red rose. If you do decide that you want something with a deeper meaning such as an Army, or a warrior tattoo you might get down to thinking as to what else is available to you out there.

Not surprising – you have a ton of choices available to you. Not only can you depict an entire story, history, meaning or culture on your body with a tattoo but you also can choose from the below-mentioned styles of tats.

After doing some research on the thousands of different tattoo styles, there are more than enough choices available out there! The symbolism and encroachment of tattoos varies in different places and cultures. Tattoos may show how a person feels about a relative (commonly it is mother vs father or daughter vs son) or about an unconnected individual.

In the period of early contact between the Mori and Europeans, Mori chiefs often drew their moko (facial tattoo) on documents in place of a signature. Whatever your reason may be – if it’s a ethnic thing you may be interested in checking out the following options available to you:

 Firstly it is the Family coat of Arms.

 Family Coat of Arms – Irish family crest

 Getting a coat of arms tattoo or a family crest – isn’t something you should take lightly. Many tattoos are designed with different symbols and images and most people that get these styles of tattoos, get them because of a deeper reasoning. You should be aware that there may be more than one family crest for the same name. For example, the Irish name O’Connor has dozens.

Many non-Gaelic names were brought into the country especially during the seventeenth century. At that time it was very much a disadvantage to have a Gaelic or Irish-sounding name so many of the native names were ‘anglicized’ into a similar sounding Anglo or Scottish name.

Secondly, it is Mexican Tattoos.

Aztec & Mexican Tattoos

 Mexican tattoos are some of the most striking new patterns around. They take their themes from those of ancient Mayan, Inca and Aztec art, a very distinctive look that’s different from most other types of tattoo designs, yet instantly recognizable. The bold, geometric patterns of Mexican tattoos make them very well suited to tattoo art.

Then next comes the Celtic Tattoo.

 Celtic  tattoo

 Celtic tattoos and body art (as well as other tribal tattoos) have been very popular for the past decade or so. Put it down to the graceful, timeless beauty of these designs which seem to lend themselves particularly well to tattoo art. Think of Celtic knots, crosses or spirals – or, more often than not, an intricate combination of several of these elements, which are often seen as black armband tattoos or as a sleeve tattoo.

Tribal tattoos– native American tattoo

The tribal styles we see today originate from various old tribes like those from Borneo, the Haida, the Native Americans, the Celtic tribes, the Maori and other Polynesian tribes. The shapes and motifs of these tribal tattoos are deeply rooted in the tribe’s mythology and view of the world.

The traditional tattoo artist aims to reflect the social and religious values of the tribe in his tattoo designs. Recurring themes are the rituals of the tribe, the ancestors, the origins of the world and the relationship with the gods.

Tattoos culture (a must for your body art)

May 27, 2010

With an increased tolerance and popularity of tattoos in modern society , more and more liberal research on the topics of tattoos come up ; however, little research has ever been done on the existence and structure of tattoo culture in modern society.

How many of you know how much about the tattoo culture , are you in or out? If you are in, then how much do you know the difference between body piercing and tattooing? How many world famous religious or regional tattoo culture do you know ?

 Distinguish Tattooing and Body Piercing

 Tattooing ,as an body art form , has been claimed over the years by many countries, tribal and ethnic groups. In many cases it is the same scenario of what came first the chicken or the egg. We will probably never really know who were the first people to mark their skins.

But we do know, and indeed that there is much evidence proves this ancient and totally unique practice has been carried out since the beginning of time . Therefore , the Body Decoration is nothing new to modern people.

A tattoo, or dermal pigmentation, is a mark made by inserting pigment into the skin for decorative or other reasons. Tattoos on humans are a type of decorative body modification, while tattoos on animals are most commonly used for identification or branding.

Fans are obsessed with celebrity tattoos. What do they say? What do they mean? Sometimes its obvious… Sometimes we just don’t know. This kind of tattoo is over the top crazy. Lil Wayne’s “fear God” eye lid tattoo is a good explanation for why he is almost never seen on camera without a pair of sunglasses.

Body piercing usually refers to the piercing of a part of the human body for the purpose of wearing jewelry in the opening created.

Body piercing is a form of body modification. The word “piercing” can refer to the act or practice of body piercing, or to a specific pierced opening in the body. Some people practice piercing for religious or other cultural reasons, while many individuals, particularly in the modern West, choose to be pierced for spiritual, ornamental, or sexual reasons.

So what exactly does a piercing mean today?

Today, it can literally means anything. Some people view it as a form of self-expression. Others do it for symbolic reasons like overcoming a personal hardship.

Someone else might have body piercings because they feel it’s aesthetically pleasing. The reasons really depend on the individual, but one thing is certain. Body piercings are now mainstream and they’re here to stay.

In a word, no matter what kind of art, they are parts of our life art. You can appreciate it or hate it.. no matter what, you cant stop their blooming steps, just like a newly-born baby ,you cant stop their growing up life…
