 LADIES: DON’T FADE AWAY!

Tattoos are not fading away any time soon. Actually they’re becoming more and more “IN” and many women are getting inked. Historically, tattoos have been associated with men. Today, more and more women are getting tattoos. If it makes you feel good in your own skin. In the words of Hilary Duff – Why Not!
CULTURAL MORES: There are still people that frown upon tattoos: maybe your boss? Corporate women hide their tattoos discretely under their clothes. Free spirited women are not afraid to show their tattoos. Learn as much as you can before getting a tattoo.
For instance, this gal on YouTube is no cover-up-artist. Her story is honest and shares her tattoo experiences with you every Tuesday. Other ladies share their tattoo experiences on the same time slot.

AT XTREMITIES we encourage you to make  ‘your own statement’ to show others who you are by displaying meaningful, artistic designs on your body that EXPRESSES YOU, “This is me!”
CLICHE TATTOO: Popular “cliche” tattoos are skulls, roses, butterflies or hearts, as well as  birds, feathers, portraits of your favourite star and quotes like “Believe” or Dream as if you’ll live forever” King Lear (Shakespeare). If it has meaning to you and it gives you passion to love who you are, why not have that reminder with you always.  A lot of women are also getting names of their daughters or sons tattooed on their body. So awesome!!! Having your children with you everywhere you go will make you feel even more blessed to be a mom like Angelina Jolie.  Angelina has the birth dates of all her children inked on her body.
BE THE BEST YOU!
Design your body to reveal what you believe in. People that think you should or shouldn’t do it are not important. People will judge you regardless of what you do. Tattoo your body if you want, get a matching tattoo or design something so unique that others will want to have what you have. At the end of the day do what makes you happy. If you want something new like a tattoo that inspires you . . . nothing should stop you. Get inked!

EXPRESS YOURSELF!
Being under the needle, feeling the excitement of knowing what you love will be on your body forever is an amazing experience. Don’t be afraid to express yourself. If you love Marilyn Monroe, just because a hot actress has a tattoo of her on her forearm doesn’t mean you can’t have Monroe on your body as well. You don’t have to have the exact same tattoo. Make it your own. Try another location on your body. Either way if you want it, get it!

Tattoo designs will always look good and they will be your style statement. Wear them as you wear your clothes. Proud and free! …Emma Watson.

LATEST NEWS (Oct 11, 2016): Hilary Duff got a double rose tattoo on her arm last week!

ROM Tattoo Exhibit

ROM Tattoo Exhibit

Ritual, Identity, Obsession, Art.
It was a sunny afternoon as I finished my ice cream outside the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum). I gazed upon the large pictures of primitive Indians adorned with body art on the grounds outside the museum. School buses filled with grade school kids reminded me of the first time I visited the museum on our class trip in grade 6. The early tattoos had a rick-rack design in black ink. Even today, a lot of people support this art form in the traditional classic black ink. Original tattoo machines were crafted of bamboo. I encourage you to visit the ROM’S TATTOO SHOW. It will enlighten you about the primitive beginnings of the art.

This is a great opportunity to see the ancient origins to how tattoo art has evolved and are received and interpreted in modern times. – See more at: tattoos.com
FOUR LECTURES
Attend the four lectures moderated by Radio Canada’s Kevin Sweet, a humourist. You will have a new or renewed appreciation for this incredible and incredibly varying art form.

JACK WAS EVERY INCH A SAILOR

The legacy of tattooing is common among most cultures and embraced world-wide. During the Age of Discovery, European travelers in Asia, the islands and the Americas “rediscovered” tattoos, which then became popular among sailors. Remember those anchor tattoos?  Sailors learned how to make their own tattoos on the long sea voyages. Moby Dick’s Queequeg was covered with tattoos from head to toe. Pushing forward, tattooing became an artistic expression. American invention of the electric tattoo machine changed the landscape entirely. With inspiration from Japanese irezumi tattoos, a global reconstruction of tattooing was born. Today, this cultural renewal is happening at an unprecedented level.

STORY
Behind every tattoo there is a story. This one reads “Learn from yesterday, Live for today, Hope for tomorrow”. A classic message to live by. My niece has a tattoo of a colourful owl on top of her foot. It’s cute! She likes owls.  People may pick a particular design just because they like hearts, roses or tigers. Tell us your story.  What is it about tigers that you like? Why owls? We will add your story to our blog. We are all fascinated by the story behind the TATTOO. We will send you our story “about you” so you can share it on Facebook and all other social medias. Our professional writers will make you shine!
