In recent decades, our culture went through a self-awareness and self-appreciation revolution. People started expressing themselves with more confidence, and they began to have higher self-esteem. We began to transition away from judging others based on their body types, clothing choices, and accessories. With this revolution, tattoos, piercings, and branding were no longer considered forms of mutilation; they became socially acceptable ways for people to express themselves.
While some circles still find these permanent body decorations a little taboo, we no longer live in a world where you hear, "If your tattoos are visible, you'll never find a job." As a matter of fact, most people who don't have tattoos can still appreciate the artistry and thought that goes into them. This shift in culture and societal norms means that virtually anyone can decorate his or her body to fit their personality. If you've been debating what tattoo to get, answer these questions to learn which type of tattoo perfectly matches your personality.
