The history of tattoos has at least 6,000 years old. The earliest tattoos were found during excavations of the Egyptian pyramids of Giza. Mummies of about four thousand years, but figures on the dry skin visible. Most sunrise tattoo culture has received in Japan, where it is still revered tattooed people. It is the master of Honshu, Hokkaido and Shikoku was first proposed three-dimensional images. Instead of ornaments, and flat shapes, they began to portray three-dimensional color and mythical animals.

Now back to what we have today. Many are afraid to get a tattoo. But this fear probably is not pain, and inadequate representation of the history of tattoos. After all, many believe that tattoos are only those who have been in the criminal world. And really, everyone in my life not often seen in people at the hands of rough blue homemade tattoo with hour-glass, wings and goodness knows what else, talking about the criminal past of this man. Hollywood colorful and spectacular shows back tattooed yakuza members with expressive dragons and swords. But this is only one side of the coin, and, of course, do not see tattoos only some criminal stigma. Indeed, many tattoo marks an inner meaning, and this needs to be more careful. But any artist will tell you who knows the value of a character.

Tattoo primarily reflects the inner world of its owner. For many, a tattoo - a search for new experiences, new outlooks in personality.

Tattooing on his body - this is a very serious step, which should come with responsibility and common sense not to feel sorry later on the deed. Before going to the salon and make yourself a tattoo, you should carefully consider all the pros and cons.

So you do decide to make a tattoo. Before addressing the one thing you need to determine the type of drawing. Yes, yes. Do all tattoos are much harder than you might think and the hierarchy they are not worse than in the army. So, what kinds of tattoos do we know? Take the most common.
