HISTORY OF THE BODY ARTS
What is TATTOO?
"Tattoo" means to insert pigment under the surface of the skin of a person, by pricking with a needle or otherwise, so as to produce an indelible mark or figure through the skin.
Tattoo is a kind of way which helps people to Express and describe themselves. Its also known as body arts. Theres no doubt that, the description of those words are not enough to understand this well known trend.
Many years ago tattoo has been used in primitive society to describe the status of people. It states the fears, desires and beliefs. Tattoo has been borned from the necessity. Its also a kind of communication.
In neolithic eras, Tattoo used for to terrify the animals and symbolized the power of the leaders in tribes.
In the first ages, After invention of writing, Tattoo designated the social life. It states the; ranks, slaves, hopes, singles and braveness.
Turks are the one of the oldest tribes in history. Since the beginning turks carried the tattoo models in their bodies with a power of proud.
Before Islam, Turks were believe in Shamanhism. (a branch of budism)
Turks thought that tattoo is the way to alienate the bad luck and spirits. Tattoos also helps to beg god instantly and silenty from deep. So thats why they adopted this body art as indispensable culture.
Meanwhile, Chinise people were using advanced technics to make tattoos. Because of the wars and political engagements with china, Turks learned those special methods from chinise experts during relationships.
Turk raiders moved the body-art culture to Europe. Europeans met with this culture during the migration of turk tribes.
In Hungarian Museums, Turks were pictured as with tattoos, long hairs and their ear-rings.
Because of the serious and continues attacks to the Anatolia, turks were accepted ıslam. However, besides the wrong beliefs Kuran never forbidded the body arts. Also theres nothing in verse of the koran.!
Our fathers in history never banned tattoo and the body-arts, even they were applying the rules of islam to their lifes purposely!.
In Ottomans, they used tattoo to identify the dead soldiers and their ids. Sultans was carrying tattoo in their bodies too!
Islam is maybe the only one religion that clarify the place of humanity. In koran theres no clue which forbids body arts. But some people still try to affect many others with this issue. They labelled body arts as a sin! Despite not to see more important crimes!
Its obvious that those people do not know Turkish History!
Today, tattoo artists are trying to assemble an organisation to introduce theirselves in Turkey. The real artists never apply pornographic or un-ethical Works on human body!
Unfortunality theres some bad examples are present in world too.! Mostly in prisons and pirate studios.
Today fashion channels and internet clearly urges young people for tattoo. New generations and adults interested in those movements as well. But also many people wants to get rid of from their tattoos too.! (thats because of mistakes and ugly Works)
Get Rid Of From Your Tattoo?
How;? Yes, Theres a way to erase unwanted symbols from your body. Now Healthcare centers are applying special lasers to marked area for clearing process!
Please never use legendary ways to avoid serious infections. Laser application is the only one method for erasement process with no doubt.! Others may harm to your skin.

Tattoo studios never supply drugs for young people! Or urge them to use!
Its not fair to blame us with those Facts, This accusation not suit with our ethical principles.
Tattoo may known as the way of expression for prisoners, junkies or criminals.
Certainly, this can not be accepted! Tattoo can be used by everyone. Body-art is not belong to special groups or tribes.
I am sure that, tattoo artists are unconfortable with it. That kind of ugly Symbolations not suits with the soul of tattoo.
Tattoos the new growing industry which has millions of fans all over the world. Thats why companies announced their electrical tattoo machines for easy application. Tattoo machines decreases the pain volume, so you feel even comfortable than ever! Normally, Tribes used to be use drugs during tattoo application.
