Tattoos 3 Assumptions "Living Canvas: A Tattoo Documentary" By Mae Wojcicki 1. Tattoos are a form of rebellion
2. Only gang members, bikers and
musicians have tattoos
3. Tattooed people are trashy History Egyptians started using tattoos as early as 4000 B.C.
Tattoos were made by hand
In 1891 Samuel O'Reilly was issued the first electric tattoo machine
He then opened up a tattoo parlor in New York City, this was the first tattoo studio in the United States
Soon after the parlor was open, tattoos became a popular trend
During World War 1& 2 the military adopted tattoos as a means of remembrance
After that tattoos started getting an enormous amount of exposure in both magazines and newspapers causing them to become a nation wide phenomenon Assumption #1: Tattoos are a form of rebellion "Why did you get your tattoo?"
Common responses: "As a means of remembrance" "Self expression"
"Identification" In present day, tattoos are no longer a form of rebellion, instead they have become a status symbol for many. The most popular reasons for why people get tattoos are to remember/honor a loved one, religious reasons, or military service. Assumption #2: Only gang members, bikers and musicians have tattoos Article: " Tattoos tell my real story" Teacher, and upper class Ph. D student
"I'm covered in tattoos and piercings, and this often leads to assumptions about my character. "Is he a drug addict? Is he a skinhead? Does he play music for a band?" I am none of these things. The lesson I hope to teach others through my life is that it's important to see past appearances."
"My body is also a billboard for my life, and my tattoos tell the story of my identity. My earliest tattoos were direct quotes and Bible verses and captured my identity as an outspoken social-justice advocate." The assumption that men with multiple tattoos could be related to gangs is a legitimate assumption. All members of the mafia have tattoos that are essentially ways to tell your story. However, you cannot just look at a person with tattoos and automatically assume they are in the mafia This is not an actual clip from the movie "Eastern Promises" but rather some background information on tattoos and their relevance in the Russian Mafia. The Russian Mafia relies so much on tattoos and this goes along well with the ideology of how they are a way of expressing yourself. Eastern Promises You can learn a lot about a person just by asking about the relevance behind their tattoos. Assumption #3: Tattooed people are trashy Tattoos are becoming more and more popular and have turned into a phenomenon. Some very influential people have tattoos. Tattoos can be seen on people from all walks of life from librarians to teenagers. Former president John F. Kennedy's son JFK Jr. had two tattoos, a dagger on his bicep and a shamrock on his foot. Countless celebrities have tattoos. Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Victoria Beckham, Keith Urban.
Also, tattoos are very popular amongst professional athletes Tattoos are a form of art.
You might have initially looked at this person with this enormous tattoo on their back and thought to yourself that it looks trashy.
However, you may not know that this tattoo is a copy of Salvador Dali's "Swans Reflecting Elephants."
I do not know what this painting symbolizes or what the reasoning is behind the tattoo.
Dali was an artist who liked to have all of the attention and had a bizarre way of painting.
This person could have related to Dali or maybe they just liked the way the painting looked. Why do it? Over 50% of those who get tattoos later wish they hadn't. Everyone has a different reason but some of the common reasons are embarrassment, moving on from the past and pregnancy.
This then leads to laser removal, which is very expensive, painful and unhealthy for your skin.
The FDA does not require ingredient disclosure on the inks. They are considered trade secrets, which means they could be capable of causing cancer, mutations and birth defects.
Tattoos can also be very expensive. "Pleasure & Pain" By: Karen Hudson In anticipation of our next meeting,
I get a shiver down my spine.
To be in the control of your able hands
Is an addictive passion of mine
The day is here; I am wonderfully frightened.
You lead me to the cold and sterile chair;
The melodious buzzing, I am intoxicated
The smells of antiseptic and latex in the air.
A cool wetness, and then the graze of the blade
You firmly press the sheet against my skin
I inspect the mark and smile in approval;
You say it is time to begin.
My heart begins to race as you approach
And I feel a hot surge in my veins.
My breath departs me for a moment;
You grin and mock my pain.
I begin to relax and bask in my bliss
Watching with masochistic delight.
Pain becomes pleasure; torture is hedonic -
I move and you hold me down tight
With one last thrust, your task is complete -
I am bloody, injured and content.
You dress my wound and send me off;
I can't wait to do it again. The Process 1. Paperwork and payment
2. Seated in the tattoo chair
3. Preparation- cleaning the area with rubbing alcohol and shaving the area.
4. Making and applying the stencil (Thermal fax- a machine many studios use to make the stencils for the tattoos. It transfers your design onto thermal paper.)
5. Preparing the tattoo machine and other equipment- The inks will be placed in "ink caps" and the needles will be placed in the machine.
6. Starting the linework
7. After the linework is done the artist begins the shading and coloring
8. The tattoo is finished
9. The area will be cleaned and then wrapped up in a bandage Bibliography Healy, M.D., Bernadine. "The Dangerous Art of the Tattoo." US News. U.S. News & World
