Are Tattoos A Fad?

I know a lot of you reading this might not have even given this any thought or you simple think that they are not a fad they are here to stay. But you honestly never know if they will ever come so taboo like they were once before. Yes, I will admit that society in general is a little more forgiving and more open to people having tattoos. But will it always be this way? I personally hope it will because I don’t want to be perceived as an outcast or lesser of a person because I have tattoos.

One might wonder why tattoos have become so popular over the years. Is it because a lot of our favorite athletes, movie stars and other people we look up to have them. Or is it the TV shows like Miami Ink and LA Ink that gives us a peek into the world of a tattoo artist and what tattooing really does for people. These are questions that I often think about. Because to me it seems that tattoos have become a lot more popular in the past 5 to 7 years. Could this be because we as a society have become overly obsessed with celebrities and knowing everything about them, including getting tattoos so we can be just like them? Or have times just simply changed and tattoos have some how evolved into something that is a must have rather than a no no.
