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.
