Being able to paint yourself, permanently and express the feelings that you have on the inside, on your skin is pretty intense. According to the Smithsonian Magazine, people have been marking their bodies with tattoos for generations and generations.

The earliest evidence of a tattoo was found on a female mummy dated all the way back to 2000 B.C. Get it girl. I hope this female Mummy was able to choose her tattoo of her own free will.

Imagine if a Mummy was like

"Hey other Mummy's, I feel like doing something crazy.  Chad and I have been dating for a while and I want to show him my undying love."

2000 BC Mummy Girl

Moving on, tattoos today are symbols, icons, talismans, and very personal marks that you put on your body to portray the feeling you are having.

It is a really important relationship to have between artist and skin. You have to seek a temporarily committed to each other, because it's a trust based activity that you'll be performing, together. It's sacred and I wanted to know which shop you couldn't live with out!
