Today’s fashion concepts are inspired by a certain level of boldness that defines individuals during their interactions with other people in their immediate environment. Markedly, piercings, and eye-popping tattoos have become popular among adults, with many people identifying with artistic pieces that define their personality. In the article, the author narrows down the evolving fashion sense and how it has been interpreted across the U.S. and beyond (Ferla, 2016). Despite certain cultures developing a conservative approach towards piercings and tattoos, many individuals are now exploring their personalities by associating with outgoing tribal inks on their bodies. While the tattooing culture was at its peak in the 1990s, the world is experiencing a return of the fashion practices to convey specific messages. Hence, the article reveals that having tattoos should not be interpreted as a sign of freakishness but a demonstration of personal taste towards different life aspects.
Tattoos and Skin Ink
Many people with tattoos fall victim to social judgments that affect their interactions with other people in their immediate environment. Before visiting an ink shop, one has to make a decision and anticipate challenges during his or her interactions with other people in his immediate environment. Likewise, celebrities’ impact on the public’s perspectives towards tattoos enables one to understand the issues that are encouraging people to embrace this fashion sense. Regardless of the tattoo drawings, I am usually impressed by individuals’ courage to bear the pain while curating their bodies. From this realization, my liberal attitude towards the modern fashion sense enables me to accommodate outlier behaviors expressed by people with tattoos. However, the process can be addictive and destructive to the body simultaneously; hence, caution should be exercised before acquiring a tattoo.
