Artistic Expression comes from Originality

Tattoos have long been used as a means of identification:The Romans tattooed their criminals and slaves; a practice that was adopted by the Japanese in the early 17th century. For centuries, society frowned upon the exploit of the human body condition in reference to the temporary and permanent alteration of the human epidermis (skin).

Tattoos are embedded as a symbol of belonging, unity, and self-preservation of individual identity. Perhaps the most popular reason is for aesthetic purposes, with many people simply getting tattoos because they love the way they look, the feel, the application of the mastery, and most importantly the meaning behind their personal art.
