Tattoo designing has been practiced by many cultures from centuries. Did you know that even island of Great Britain takes its name from tattooing; Britons translates as “people of the designs”, and Picts, the peoples who originally inhabited the northern part of Britain, literally means “the painted people”? The word tattoo is loaned to English from Polynesian word tatau. It was brought to Europe by the explorer James crook in 1771 from his first voyage to Tahiti and New Zealand.
In earlier days tattoo designs were used for identification purpose, mark of status and ranks, spiritual devotions, bravery, as talismans, protection etc. The symbolism and impact of tattoo design varies in places and cultures. The modern day tattoo designs are mostly used for artistic, cosmetic purposes or symbolizing association to certain groups. The traditional tattoo designs were created by cutting designs into skin and rubbing the wound with agents like ink and ashes. However the most common modern method of tattooing is the electric tattoo machine which inserts ink into skin via needle.
