Popular Tattooing Terms

For many cultures, it is a common practice to paint and permanently apply ink to the skin. The reasons behind one's decision to ink the body vary from personal expression to adhering to cultural customs. In order to have a better understanding of the world of tattooing, it is important to understand the terminology associated with inking one's body. Below are several terms to be familiar with when researching tattoo artists and parlors.

  • Tattoo - A tattoo is the act or practice of marking the skin with indelible patterns or pictures by puncturing the skin and inserting pigments. The designs can be applied to any part of the body from the back and legs, to the arms and abdomen. Designs run the gamut from dragons, stars and tribal designs, to religious crosses and animals.
  • Celtic Tattoo - These often consist of knots, spirals, or mazes. Celtic tattoos are popular designs around the biceps, legs, or neck. Celtic tattoos may also depict pentagrams, which are a star-like shape with five points.
  • Gothic Tattoo - Gothic tattoos typically contain a large amount of black. People interested in the Gothic lifestyle may also have one or multiple body piercings to complement their permanent skin art.
  • Tribal Tattoo - Tribal tattooing consists of heavy black graphic designs inspired by the traditional Polynesian tattooing of Island cultures. These type of designs are popular around the biceps, legs, or neck.
  • Japanese Tattoo - Dragon tattoos are common in a lot of Japanese-style skin art. The tattoos are typically very colorful and highly detailed. In addition, Japanese symbols are also popular and are found on various parts of the body including the back, chest, and arms.

Make it personal with names and faces, or choose a cartoon character or a favorite quote. You can even choose custom art, from black and white images to colorful dragons. Tattooing, also known as dermal pigmentation, decorates the body by injecting ink into the skin. This art form harks back many centuries, having been used all over the world as a cultural and traditional practice. Tattoo parlors provide this service, along with body piercings. Customers can choose from a standard design, like a star or butterfly, or something more unique and custom, such as a tribal or Celtic image. People can put tattoos anywhere on their bodies, from arms and legs, to stomachs and backs. Today's technologies have allowed tattoo artists to use brilliant colors, muted tones, and crisp black and whites to create the perfect image or text. The process is done using a needle and ink. Customers can seek out a local tattoo parlor or studio to browse samples, get ideas, and learn about prices. The Internet is a great place to start in terms of local listings of professionals and maps. It's also a great tool to check out designs, such as crosses, stars, dragons, arm bands, and fish. Tattoos can be cultural in nature, such as Egyptian or Japanese, or they can be Gothic or tribal. Tattoo artists spend many years honing their craft. They should be licensed and use the very best sanitary practices to avoid cross contamination. From body piercings to color, black and white, and gray tattoos, such artists should be able to provide clients with quality services for their money.
