‘Body Art’, you either like it or you don't. There is no midway. If you were confused about getting one in your 20ies then the odds of getting one the moment you clock 30ish is very high. It’s a tested statistic, think of people around you.

Tattoos are so much deeper than what you see. It predominantly defines your uniqueness. Our society craves individuality and self-expression. Lot of people communicate through body art. It’s an unspoken language, more like a vibe you reflect.

Life Hack: Similarity between tattoos and botox? Both deal with self-esteem

Every time I noticed a friend get inked at 30, I asked why now?? each one had their own reasons which made lot of sense to their existence. They have candidly shared their tattoos with 30ish.**Hugs. One thing they all have in common is that it marks an important time in their life or a turning point. You fairly have an idea about things and people that truly matter.
Unfortunately tattoos border around stereotypes eg. He has skulls on his arm.. what a freak! We all judge, the first expression carries much more weight than reality.

Here’s a list of popular tattoos and their meaning
  • Butterflies – Symbol of love, change and rebirth
  • Lions – Stands for strength, courage and protection
  • Stars – Shine in darkness, no fear
  • Pin up girls – Ideal beauty, youth and attraction
  • Birds/Wings – Symbolic to freedom, free spirit
  • Alphabets – Faith and reminder of someone special
I am yet to find something that defines my spirit. The day I am sure, I will definitely get inked. Till then I am gonna flaunt "Muscles & Mascara" to amuse you  :D
