What is a tattoo

Did you know that about twelve million Americans have one tattoo! A tattoo is a design made on the skin by a process of pricking and ingraining an indelible pigment. The design is made on the skin with a temporary dye such as henna or ink. “The word tattoo comes from the Tahitian "tatu" which means "to mark something.” Tattoos date back to 3300 years B.C. and have been known to be found on Egyptian and Nubian mummies. Many societies wore tattoos as part of their culture but in todays society, tattoos are widely accepted and are used to convey a message or display artwork.
