TODAY IS TATTOO DAY
There is something about permanently etching a story into your flesh that draws the heart and inspires the mind. Tattoos tell a tale of who we were, who we are, and sometimes of just where we’re going. They’ve served important roles in cultures all around the world, and continue to have evolving meanings in our modern age. Tattoo Day celebrates the august history of skin art and its ever-evolving place in society.
