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.

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.
