Most Recent Tattoo

In recent years, the tattoo is enjoying something of a renaissance. A short time
ago, the only people with tattoos were sailors, soldiers and scruffy groups who
listen to certain music styles. Nowadays, you're just as likely to find your mum
browsing the latest tattoo design magazines as you are the latest punk rock star.
The reason for this has a lot to do with the improvements in tattoo technology;
this has enabled real artists to make real their designs, where as before it was
quite difficult to transfer what was in ones mind, to ones body. Now it is most
common for the very best tattooists to have formal fine art or technical art qualifications.
Gone too are the preconceptions about tattoos, in the past we may have been
swayed by the way Hollywood portrayed film baddies, often they would have
tattoos to add to their menacing veneer. This has now gone full circle as many
of the newest celebrities; especially those younger ones proudly show off their
latest tattoo designs.
Two celebrities that have embraced tattoos and body art are Robbie Williams
and David Beckham. Williams prefers to select tattoos based on their artistic
merit, while Beckham's are a public statement of love for his family.
Whatever your views are about tattoos or body art, there can be no disputing
their contribution to modern art. At the very top end of the tattoo profession,
a handful of skilled and experienced tattooists compete for the major tattoo
body art awards. Confirmation if it was needed, that tattoos and body art
are now part of the mainstream.
