Many cultures throughout the world have a history of body modification that has influenced the styles that are currently popular. As the awareness and acceptance of body modifications grew, so did the depth and ability of the artists themselves. Tattoos and body modifications were once considered “taboo” by the masses, and have now become a thing of normalcy for younger generations in today’s society. The art of tattooing has expanded greatly in the past 2 decades. With tattoo conventions, galleries, and magazines there has been a whole new focus on the quality of tattoos.
