Tattoo art existed in the world even before our era. It wasn't called art back then, but rather a way of signing the body with symbols determining the wearer's heritage. It was first associated with tribal people, yet in the 1970s, this form of self-symbolizing became a mainstream art form.
When we decide to get a tattoo, we view ink on our bodies as a form of art or a trendy attribute. However, nowadays, tattoos can have a more practical meaning. They can help people cope with grief and loss and honor the memory of their loved ones. Psychiatrists claim that they can also better understand the personality of their patients while talking about their tattoos.
