As an art form, tattooing is much the same as other mediums of self-expression such as music, writing, or dance. However, the fact that a tattoo is indelibly inked on your body makes it all the more personal and a reflection of your inner self.
But that’s just scratching the surface. In this article, we delve deeper into why tattoos are an incredible form of self-expression.
If there’s an idea or principle that you feel strongly about, or someone or something you want to pay tribute to, a tattoo is a great way to make a statement that has meaning. It gives you a way to express yourself creatively and show solidarity with a cause.
Whether it’s a political symbol, an instantly recognizable pop culture reference, or a signifier like the semicolon that’s become part of a movement to raise awareness of mental illness, suicide, and addiction, a tattoo can express your views on something you feel strongly about.
