The judicious application of tattoos can be an attractive fashion statement. Knowing when to stop adding content is however key to any authentic aesthetic statement.
The true curiosity of tattoos to me is in their concrete inscription of culture upon the body. Engraving symbols upon flesh in this way encodes or encrypts consensus reality and its symbolic value systems indelibly into the surface of the human body. Like all other forms of communication and language, there are varying degrees of talent evident in this art.
