According to a USA Today survey 24% of people 18 to 50 years old sport at least one tattoo. The art of tattooing dates back to 3300 B. C., and even has biblical mention. No matter your view on the art of tattooing—it is shared by Kings and commoners, prisoners, sailors, and sweethearts.

With the number of tattoo parlors popping up all around, you could be the proud owner of a new tattoo in just a matter of a few hours. I think it is wise to mention that tattoos are much easier to get—than to get rid of. So, some food for thought on choosing the right tattoo artist, the procedure, safety, and Continue reading So You Want A Tattoo?
