Why do people get tattooed?

Tattoo History

People get permanent and temporary tattoos for a variety of reasons. Tattooing formerly played a part in Burmese magical and religious rituals; the Japanese adopted it as simply an ornamental art; and Moroccan women wear henna tattoos on their ankles to protect themselves during childbirth. People today get tattoos as a form of artistic expression or to signify their affiliation with a certain group.
