Women and Tattoos
Actually, it is not new for women to get a tattoo or “tattoo” as it is often called. Women have been getting tattooed for thousands of years, and although we believe that tattooing was an art practiced only by men, in some cultures only women get tattooed. In some of these cultures, women get tattoos to show different skills such as basket weaving and food gathering and to show that they are fit for marriage.
The word tattoo means “to be marked” and comes from the Tahitian word “tattoo”, but today people who love tattoos generally refer to them as body art.
Tattooing has had its ups and downs throughout the estimated twelve thousand years it has been practiced and has been banned many times over a period of time in different cultures. However, it seems that the tattoo seems to stay here when it has been banned, it seems to go underground, and when things cool down, it reappears.
Until the beginning of the last century, tattoos were associated with a great stigma that especially prevented Western women from getting tattoos. Times have changed and women are no longer told what they can and cannot do, and where 40 or 50 years ago only 10 percent of Western women got tattooed, today it is almost 60 percent.
Why women get tattoos:
A survey on Cruiser shows that forty-three percent of women find it sexy, fifteen percent find it fashionable, thirteen percent to attract a man, and twelve percent for personal reasons. Women often decide to get a tattoo after a separation or divorce to show their independence.
Women’s tattooing is increasing enormously, the times when a tattoo was hidden in a place where it could only be seen by a husband or partner are over. Women are proud of their tattoos and love to show them off. Women often participate in the design process instead of simply choosing a finished design that everyone else can wear. They spend much more time choosing the design they would like to have, or even work with the artist to create an original so they can get exactly the tattoo they want.
The most popular tattoo designs chosen by women are
1. tattoos with floral design
2. angel tattoos
3. unicorn tattoos
4. butterfly tattoos
5. fairy tattoos
6. dragonfly tattoos
7. shooting stars
Where do women get their tattoos?
Women generally opt for smaller tattoos, although this trend is beginning to change as women become more comfortable with themselves and with the idea of body art. The most popular body parts where women get tattooed are the lower back, ankles, wrists, buttocks and abdomen.
From a health point of view, women who get tattooed are no different from men who get tattooed. Therefore, make sure that the tattoo parlors, needles, and surroundings are sterile and that the procedure is performed by a professional. Insist that the needle be removed from the sterile packaging in front of you, and this should be done with sterile gloves. If you get a henna tattoo, ask your artist to prove that he or she is using pure brown henna of the highest quality and not the dangerous black henna that can cause serious scarring and lifelong health problems.
A tattoo is destined to last for eternity and can be very expensive and painful to remove. So before you get a tattoo, make sure you choose a design that you can live with for the rest of your life. Choose an artist who not only has a great selection of designs, but who can customize their design for you, and remember that the smaller and more complicated the design, the more expensive it will be.
