Tattoos are increasingly gaining popularity in the US as more people view tattoos as art rather than trash. My father has several tattoos, and I plan on getting a tattoo once I turn 18. For those of you who consider myself as stupid and "low class" for my opinion allow me to explain who I am. I'm currently an honor roll student in high school who will definitely attend college and is considering business school after receiving an undergraduate degree. I plan on getting my tattoo in a place where it can be easily concealed in case any future colleagues are easily offended by it. I see tattoos as art and as a way to express myself in a way words simply cannot.
