July 17th is National Tattoo Day, which makes it our favorite holiday! This holiday has only been observed since 2016, but tattoos have played an important role throughout history.
Humans have been marking their bodies for centuries. There are even Egyptian mummies that sport ink! Tattoos have a lot of cultural significance, from honoring the dead, marking war victories, to celebrating their tribe tattoos have played a crucial role throughout history and continue to do so to this day.
Tattoos have been on the rise in recent years thanks to them becoming less and less taboo. Getting inked is no longer a sign of being a criminal or a low life. Thankfully that false stereotype is officially beginning to fade away.
So if you have been wanting a tattoo, today is the perfect day to get one! Stop by our downtown tattoo shop or contact us to get inked today.
