A tattoo is a form of body modification, made by inserting indelible ink into the dermis layer of the skin to change the pigment. In some special groups, tattoos are a symbol of courage; especially in gangster groups, tattoos can gain recognition from fellow members. As society becomes more open, tattoos have become a more acceptable form of art.


In ancient times, Maori people hammered shark teeth or animal bones to insert ink into their skin. Nowadays, there are electronic tattooing devices.


The well-known tattoo artist Liuyun uses disposable gloves and needles.


Young people, chasing after fashion and seeking to extend their own personalities, are keen on getting tattoos.  


Professional tattooists use natural plant pigment to prevent skin infection.


The colors in a tattoo can vary greatly and there are also many kinds of needles tattooists use, just like painters use different kinds of paint brushes.


Liuyun works very carefully every time he does a tattoo. A man once got a portrait of his girlfriend tattooed on his body., The relationship didn’t last and so and he wanted it to be Laser removed. Liuyun said it’s not possible to completely remove a tattoo and so he sees it as his responsibility to do the best job he possibly can.


Something tattoo enthusiasts must take note of, is that people in China with tattoos are not allowed to join the army, attend police school or take a civil service examination.


Big tattoo patterns take more time to finish. In Hong Kong, gangsters usually tattoo a black dragon on the left arm and a white tiger on the right. But nowadays, people get tattoos out of interest and can have any tattoo designs they like.


Liuyun said, tattoos are not suitable for people who have keloid scars, which would ruin the completion of the tattoo pattern, people with diabetes and people with thyroid disease which can take more time for the wound to heal. There is always a chance when getting a tattoo that if the tattoo needles are not properly sanitized that it might lead to a blood infection, which could lead to hepatitis B or AIDS.
