The purpose of this page is to educate and hopefully teach people to enjoy tattoos. When you google something, there is little to no information on the steps of choosing the right tattoo, why is it people may regret some of the tattoos they have, or even something different to the normal “we have only pictures,” website.

(Julie’s background) Born and raised in a religious family it was my impression at a young age that tattoos are not something most people have. I received my first tattoo at the age of 18 from a tattoo artist by the name of Bones. Much of my motivation for getting a tattoo was to show my freedom and independence. Getting a tattoo was a way to rebel from my parents. After my first tattoo I just can not seem to get enough. I find that I just enjoy looking for my next possible tattoo. Whether it is browsing through a tattoo magazine dreaming about what my next tattoo will be, or hanging out with my tattoo artist friends while they are getting or giving a tattoo.

(Alex’s background) I was also born into a strong religious conservative family, but very out spoken. If there is something they didn’t like they will tell you with no regards to you feelings. Growing up you hear that tattoos are only done on the rebels and trouble makers. If you planned on getting one or had one you parents will disown you. That was the type of culture I grew up too. Over my experiences as a young adult and getting to see the world. I have come to love tattoos and understand the reasons behind them. People get them for therapy purposes, helping ease the passing of a loved one or  certain placement of the tattoo to relief of pain. To celebrate a specific time in one’s life that was significant to always remember.

I hope we get the chance to at least touch the topics we want to this semester, and maybe after it will be something we will decide to keep updating.

  1. Hey guys! I’m excited about this site and your topic. I think it’ll be a lot of fun, and from what you’ve got here I can see that there’s a lot to it that I’ve never considered. What I’d suggest, though, is saving almost all of this information for later pages. You can put the history in your report and the tips in your instructions; this page is meant to just be a couple of paragraphs describing to your visitors what the site is about: the purpose of it and what they’ll find as they read the pages. I know that working together will make it harder to edit this page, but try to come up with maybe one brief paragraph describing the site and then maybe one paragraph each describing yourselves and why you chose this topic. Let me know if you have any questions. 🙂
