Used to put a permenant mark under your skin to represent a feeling, an event, or in memory of a loved one.

Being tattoed does not mean that you are either conforming or rebelling.

It is a deeply personal matter.

It is simply a way of remembering something in a meaningful way.

However, being "inked" is addictive and tattoos can have negative effects.
parents often have their childrens names inked on themselves out of love and pride.

Likewise, soldiers/firemen/police officers etc. would have deceased peers' names tatto'd on themselves out of respect.

There is a very high number of men in these professions with 9/11 tattoos.
