Description: Tattoo, also known as tattoos, is the color of the needle into the skin with a bottom in the skin to create a number of patterns or words out. I.e. pierce the skin with pigment deposition in the wound to the body with a permanent pattern. Stripes on the skin caused by scar uplift the practice, sometimes also known as tattoo. Plain tattoos are implemented in most parts of the world, dark-skinned people without this habit, the last few hundred years in China is relatively rare. Many peoples think that tattoos can prevent and eradicates disaster. Some also use the tattoo mark of national status, identity or membership in a group, but probably the most common motive is to beautiful.
