The tattoo has become modern and these artists with their shops opened up in areas that stand out. Around the world, specialized artists with their global recognition has made their mark (not pun intended) with these incredible, fancy parlors.

Asia

British artist Rob Kelly moved to Hong Kong in the 1990s and opened his Black Out Tattoo shop in 2010. Kelly’s reputation as an artist intent on raising the standards of body art is well-known and his Sheung Wan-based shop is a clean, hip place for fresh bodily art. In Tahiti, an area where the natives pride themselves on tattoos as part of their ritual, Mana’o Tattoo Studio is acclaimed for their realistic work depicting Polynesian-style artwork. In Tokyo, where Japanese tattoos also have had a long history, Honey Tattoo uses traditional techniques for expansive bodily work.

Europe

Tattoo artist Angelique Houtkamp is based in Amsterdam’s Salon Serpent, a part-body ink, part-art shop near the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. One of Ms. Houtkamp’s known talents is tattooing realistic nipples for those who have had a breast removed following cancer. Another tattoo studio and café of notice is AKA Berlin from artist Peter Aurisch and others who have developed a minimalist technique to their work; they also sell their designs on t-shirts that sell quite a lot. And, in Liege, Belgium, Calypso Tattoo has been the top center in the country for tattoos.

This last place is not in one singular spot, but an exhibition that appears all over the world from Los Angeles to London. New York artist Scott Campbell’s Whole Glory features a simple premise: customers stick their arm in a hole in the wall (a glory hole, if you flip the words around) and pull it out when the tattoo is completely finished with whatever design is there. It is a creative idea that adds to the experience of getting permanent ink on the arm. The parlors mentioned above take the process to a new level with eye popping designs and settings not like any other tattoo piercing parlor.

Arunachal Pradesh, July 1, 2017: India is a land of many tribes which forms its rich cultural heritage. One such tribe is Apatanis also known as Tanw, which lives in Ziro valley in the Lower Subansiri district of Arunachal Pradesh in India.

This tribe is famous for their colorful culture with various festivals, vibrant traditional village councils detailed and complex handloom designs and cane and bamboo crafts skill. They reside in very basic bamboo huts resting on top of vertical wooden stilts.  The Apatanis worships nature by praying sun and moon. Apatanis are also known for their distinctive way of sustainable farming and social forestry.

The Apatanis women are believed to be the exceptional beauty in Arunachal Pradesh.  With their beauty, arrived a danger of theft of apatanis women by neighboring tribes.

Majority of women on the earth are considered to be delicate pieces of physical beauty. The outer beauty is not seen as a blessing of god but the parameter on which the girl is admired, adorned or loved. No matter, how beautiful a woman is but the beautiful looks always wins in captivating the eye. People are more tempted by what they see than what they feel.

Beauty is a positive term that is why it attracts people. Especially, if we talk of outer beauty, the desire of it makes people cross their limits and restore to wrong practices.

Rape, sexual assault, kidnapping and forceful marriage are some examples of these wrongful deeds. A lady finds variety of ways to protect herself from the cruel world. Some learn self defense, some keep weapons, some don’t go out alone in night, some keep pepper spray and  some employ special bodyguards to  save themselves.

But, these tribal women found the solution in killing the root of the problem itself. Their pretty faces were very appealing to the neighbor tribes which lead to kidnapping of these women.

They altered their faces by inserting huge nose plugs and tattooing their faces in order to safeguard their lives. Their decision showed their bravery of letting go their outer beauty.  They preferred a life without beauty instead of physical beauty because their life was very much more than physical beauty to them.

The older women of tribe can still be spotted with inked faces and nose plugs. The further inserting of nose plugs and inking of faces have been banned by government.

The beauty they portrayed by disregarding their face appearance was beyond words. But on the other hand, hurting oneself just for getting secured is not a good choice. Will you spoil your face by the fear of getting raped; will you hurt yourself so much and make your outer skin ugly to protect yourselves from all the evil crimes of outer beauty?
