The art of tattooing has been around for thousands of years, its roots are can be traced back to numerous ancient tribes. Back in them days tattoos were just different patterns and designs that meant something to each tribe or warrior of a tribe. Tattooing in the modern day era is much different and is becoming increasingly popular. There are many great tattoo artists but for each great one there are hundreds of awful tattoo artists. Tattoo removal is a booming business these days because of bad tattoo artists and also because some people made the wrong choices of tattoo designs.

There are plenty more amazing pieces out there, so these are just some of my favorites that I find extraordinary.
