Why do people get tattoos?

Tattoos blossom at the crossroads of bodies and art, the physical and the imaginary. Their colours, shapes, and symbols pulsate with memories, meanings, and emotions. Above all, body art captures and reveals unspoken aspects of human relationships, both past and present. Quite often, people get tattooed to honor someone or something they deeply cherish.  Although tattoos were once seen as taboo, tattoos have now become a beautiful form of expression widely accepted and celebrated.

The history and culture of tattoos

Tattooing has been practiced across the globe since Neolithic times, as evidenced by mummified preserved skin and ancient art depicting body modification practices.

The oldest discovery of tattooed human skin was found on the body of Ötzi the Iceman, dating between 3370 and 3100 BC. Cultural tattoos have been seen around the world from ancient Egyptians, Incans, Maori as well as Japanese, Chinese and Central American peoples. By using ancient tattooing techniques such as hand-tapping and the Tebori method, artists used animal bone and bamboo, for example to place the ink or ash into the skin to create a permanent tattoo.

Now tattoos have burst into  modern pop culture and media.  Tattoos have become a mainstream part of society and enjoyed by people all over the world. Here at Happy Buddha Tattoo, we use the safest, sterile, and most effective tattooing methods to create accurate and beautiful works of art.
