She always wanted to have a tattoo and once she had one on her right ankle which she drew with pen…as she is awesome in drawing and sketch, she made it beautiful with two to three colours.
I always get scared whenever I heard about the tattoo, because use of needle and the colours they used directly on the skin may be harmful…
But today I don’t know whether she has gone ahead with it or not… Just wanted to share an interesting fact about tattoo, with a belief that it might realise her that, still someone is worried about her health and happiness !!!
The sailor who told up his sleeves and shows an arm tattooed with anchors, hearts, and is actually wearing a form of body adornment that had been used by the most primitive people.
Tattooing goes back to very ancient times: the Egyptians, southern Chinese, east Indians and others all knew about it.. In those olden days, the art of tattooing was made tho seem important and dignified because it was accompanied by elaborate ceremonies. The Maoris of New Zealand used to cover their faces with very complicated tattooed patterns, and sometimes they still do it today…
In Japan, the practice of tattooing chrysanthemums, dragons’ faces, and whole landscapes had gone on for centuries. Tattoo designs used to take the place of clothing for some of the Japanese. The american Indians used tattooing as a way of identifying themselves with certain tribes.
Tattooing had also had, in many parts of the world, a religious and social importance. Among some people, young girls are not considered ready for marriage until they have been used to designate mourning among some people. And warriors have had themselves tattooed in order to show their courage or tho look more frightful to their enmities…
Today, tattooing I’d usually done by pricking the skin in dots and lines with a sharp instrument, such as a needle of steel, shell, or bone. Then colouring matter is put in to form a design.
A less usual method is that of “sewing” in the pattern by drawing through the skin a thread which had been dipped in colouring matter.
Loads of love and respect for her
