Summary – Tattooing practiced for centuries in many parts of the world is seeing a comeback among men and women driven in part by wide media coverage, the need for expression and the availability of excellent tattoo artists, new paints and equipment.

Be bold, get a tattoo while on holiday to show off back home. What about a delicate butterfly on your ankle or that ferocious dragon writhing on your shoulder. No longer the privilege of society’s outcasts, tattooing has gone mainstream with many people from teenagers (or even younger) to grandparents getting a discreet or in some cases a not so discreet tattoo. Getting a tattoo has been explained as a way of getting included in a group, a way of changing from childhood to adulthood, making a statement, as a sign of protest, protection against evil, to bring luck, for religious reasons, to gain magical powers and the like. Whatever it is body decoration through tattooing is definitely gaining in popularity among men and women.

Tattooing has been practiced for centuries among many cultures from Japan to North Africa, among the Maori in New Zealand, in Northern Nigeria, among Arab communities in Eastern Turkey, among Polynesian people and is found in every continent. Tattoos are experiencing a comeback with people all over the world looking at tattooing with new eyes. Well trained tattoo artists and the availability of high quality tattoo pigment and improvements to tattoo implements have resulted in the ability to create elaborate designs and to put them on the skin. Popular television shows such as Miami Ink and LA Ink have given a lot of publicity to tattooing and the incorporation of body art into mainstream art exhibitions have all added fuel to a smoldering fire. Tattooing has also become a fad among celebrities with most of them showing off tattoos in interesting places. Now there are tattoo conventions, art shows, tattoo festivals, tattoo related web content, Tattoo Mania games, communities and forums where like minded people can trade design ideas, buy tattoo products and exchange the latest tattoo news.

There are even semi permanent tattoos in the form of stickers and mehndi or henna tattoos that will wash away after a few days.

Tattoo body art, Tattoo advertising

Tattoo, as a body art, has been long used throughout history for many different purposes. In some cultures, tattoos have been used as the symbol of authority while in other cultures been used to give mystical powers or abilities. Lately in modern times, they have been popularly used in many countries as a form of self-expression. However, another use of tattoos has recently come up as a more commercial use than an individual use. That is, many people have used tattoo body art to advertise their website or business.

During the end of the 1990s and into this decade, tattoos have first become wildly popular among many sports stars and celebrities who have well-known tattoos on their body. After seeing this trend, certain businesses are preparing to use tattoo as a form of promotion their business. It has been done by tattooing the name of a company or a brand on people’s arm, leg, or other part of body. This results in free advertising for the company who sells the product and the product brand. But why are tattoo advertising so popular?

First, people tend to better remember things that they have seen in weird places. Seeing a coke logo tattooed on some guy’s stomach would probably leave more of an impression in your mind than seeing it on a generic billboard.

Second, since getting tattoos costs money and are many times painful, people may think that someone who tattoos a product onto themselves really believes in that product. Celebrities’ tattoos have higher advertising value as many of them have well-known tattoos that people are often curious about, adding another tattoo with the logo of a company or product could make the celebrity a walking commercial. And you can commonly see many celebrities wearing many glitter temporary tattoos of a company logo or brand as temporary tattoo can be washed off after the commercial activity and with no pains.

Tattoo advertising can be seen anywhere but it is still a great way to advertise your business or brand. So before deciding to invest in such advertising, you’d better be best served researching your target demographic and deciding whether tattoos are popular within that group of people. While for some groups, it may be a good model of advertising, for most, tattoos should be kept as an art of self-expression.


Tattoo body art is not only a kind of body art but a great way of advertising your business and products as tattoo advertising has many merits compared to other ways of advertising.
