The cost of the tattoo image

Today we will have a conversation about the cost of the work of tattoo artist and will try to understand where the tattoo artist takes the figures when he discusses the sketch of your further tattoo. It is widely spread thing that the cost of tattoo depends on the space it occupies on the human body. Is it really so? If yes, how can it be calculated?

The typical situation. A phone call. I take the phone and start the conversation:

  • Hello, is it a tattoo shop?
  • No, it is a studio?
  • Do you apply tattoos?
  • Yes, we do.
  • And how much does the cigarette pack cost?
  • What, sorry?
  • Cigarette pack.
  • We don’t sell cigarettes – the only one answer I can give in this situation.

Tattoo pictures – art or trend?

The popularity of tattoo pictures has increased recently and there is a good question because of it – should they be understood as a part of art or just as a modern tendency. The press discusses this question a lot and also some sociological tests are held as well as serious investigations. The results sometimes are diametric. One consider that tattoo pictures allow to beautify the body of not so clever people that did not go far in their mental development. The others insist that tattoo pictures are real art and allow people to reveal themselves – both for the applicant and the tattoo artist. It is considered nowadays that the tattoo images are the part of the image of a person and that’s why tattoos nowadays became interesting not only for artists but also for the models. For example, in London fashion college the history of tattoo is being taught with the purpose of bringing the ethnic motifs of different people to the modern fashion and to reveal their cultural habits.

How to choose the correct tattoo design and correct place for its application

We have to acknowledge that all over the world many people are disappointed with the result they get from the tattoo design application – they got not the exact variants of tattoos that they had expected. And the main reason for this kind of disappointment is that they had been careless themselves – they didn’t devote enough time for examining and thinking over the different tattoo design variants.

Here are some recommendations, that as we hope will help you to choose the correct tattoo design just for you.

The history of the tattoo images

It is very hard to say when human beings began to apply first tattoo images on their skins. Such kind of art was invented in very distant times in different parts of the world simultaneously. However, it is widely known that the history of tattoo images exceeds 60 thousand years.

The most ancient tattoo images were found during the excavations taking place in the Egyptian pyramids. Up to our days there have been not only the knowledge about the fact that in Egypt people apply tattoo images onto their skins, but also were found the examples – tattooed mummies. The age of such mummies is almost 4 thousand years, and the tattoo images on their dried skin are still clearly visible. We can now suppose that tattoo images were applied only to the skins of rich and famous people in Egypt, including pharaohs and their families.

New statutes regulate the size of the U.S. Air Force tattoos

According to NBC News, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force General Norton Schwartz, amended the charter shortly before his retirement. The document, dated August 7, can be found on the website of NBC.

     The new rules, in particular, prohibit the military to have a "very large tattoos." According to another official document of the U.S. Air Force, "too large" are those images that occupy more than a quarter of the surface of a body part. Those military, which already have banned tattoos, must immediately remove them.

What is a tattoo?

Tattoo – it’s grooves in the skin that are filled with a special dye. First, master, with help of needles, scratch out the picture on the skin, and then fill the space of piercing with paint. Tattoo stays on the skin for a long time, as the paint is injected not into the epidermis (outer layer of skin, which is regenerated throughout life), but the dermis, the second, deeper layer of skin. The cells of the dermis are very stable, so the tattoo is usually long-lasting.
