A tattoo is a form of art that helps someone express their opinions, ideas or to log a memory. In the early days Tattoos were something that men only did. In the 19th century, women started to get involved in the tattoos. In those days tattooed women were frowned upon and were considered carnival freaks. Fast forward to the 21st century the idea of women with tattoos hasn’t changed that much. Now in the 21st century many women can be seen with tattoos but there is a stigma that goes with it still. Most women stick to getting small tattoos or tattoos in places that won’t be noticeable to other eyes. A women with sleeve tattoos or have more than 1/3 of their body tattoos are unprofessional or will be the last to hand a suitable match. Some people thought of a tattooed woman in a wedding dress is appalling and a tattoo on an aging woman is disgusting.
But if men considers tattooing an art form doesn’t that a a womens tattoos a work of art. Aren’t there bodies considered a walking canvas? A tattooed women can still be as equally gorgeous as a non tattooed woman in a wedding dress. An older lady tattoos can still look nice on her with the help of exercise, eating healthy and drinking healthy. So why continue to bash women for wanting to express their thoughts and ideas on their bodies? Tattooes brings a sense of adventure, the notation of a memory and a connection to something or someone. Having a sleeve tattoo doesn’t mean you are less educated or unprofessional it just means that you love art and chose to make your body a canvas. All forms of art is beauty and tattoos are a form of art the shows beauty.
