Tattoos Do's and Tattoos Don'ts: Booking Your Appointment

FUSE TV - Tattoos Do's and Tattoos Don'ts: Booking Your Appointment

As a casual student of the arts for the last 20+ years, and an avid tattoo collector for the past nine years, I prefer to think of tattooing as if it were an extension of the humanities. In many ways, tattoos (especially traditionally styled ones) retain the essence of Paleolithic cave drawings, of which the oldest known to man are presumed to be dated over 35,000 years. And while it's impossible to know exactly the finer details behind what communication purposes the cave drawings served, it's painfully clear that humans have always carried an innate need to share stories with one another about our surroundings, our rituals and ceremonies, our backgrounds, and our journeys. If I've learned anything at all along the way, it's that a narrative this old needs to be met with respect. This is the first installment in my series on Tattoos Do's and Tattoos Don'ts; or, how not to piss off the guy who's going to mark your body permanently.
