Tattoos are a type of skin marking that goes back centuries and has a history in cultures from all over the world. Ancient Egyptian mummies have been found with ink markings on their skin and Balkan children were marked to identify them if they were kidnapped by the Ottomans. Tattoos can hold religious, cultural, or even personal significance to the wearer and are an incredibly unique way of expressing your individuality openly and creatively. You can get tattooed nearly anywhere on your body in all colours and designs. Just make sure you double check every inch of it! The last thing you want is to a bad tattoo. Share some of your favourite tattoos and the meanings behind them using #NationalTattooDay on social media.
