Pinay Celebrities Who Have Tattoos on Their Bodies That You Probably Didn’t Know About.

A tattoo is a form of body modification where a design is made by inserting ink, dyes, and pigments, either indelible or temporary, into the dermis layer of the skin to change the pigment. Tattoos fall into three broad categories: purely decorative (with no specific meaning); symbolic (with a specific meaning pertinent to the wearer); pictorial (a depiction of a specific person or item). 

Tattoos have historically been regarded in the West as 'uncivilized', and over the last 100 years, the fashion has been associated mainly with sailors, working men, and criminals. By the end of the 20th Century, many Western stigmas of the tattoo culture had been dismissed and the practice has become more acceptable and accessible for people of all trades and levels of society.

Having a tattoo is one of the latest trend and fashion for men and women nowadays. Most men would like to have at least one tattoo, while women can be rarely seen having a design on their precious skin.

Tattoos have become more popular than ever, and they experienced an increased presence in 2016 when it came to celebrities. Celebrity ink is helping to change the way tattoos are thought about and normalizing a practice that has surprisingly continued to carry a social stigma.

Almost half of all millennials are inked, and about seven in 10 people have two or more tattoos now. When it comes to the influence of celebrity tattoos on other people getting inked, there does seem to be a larger connection. A while back, there was a huge trend of people getting 'underboob' Rihanna-style tattoos that look like lace. There has been a trend of people getting small trinket style tattoos, geometric patterns, and mehndi/henna-style designs."

A study shows, "Women have been an important part of popularizing tattoo culture, as the practice grew from masculine subcultures and new demographic groups began collecting in earnest. In 2012, it was reported that women surpassed men as tattoo collectors for the first time. With the changing demographics of tattoo collectors, the meaning of being inked has changed. 

For women, they still struggle with gendered public reactions, which reminds them that for women, gender appropriate tattoos remain small, cute, and hidden. Yet this hasn't slowed down the increase of heavily tattooed women that are represented in the media and in public, who are redefining their own concept of beauty and self-expression."

Tattoos continue to gain momentum in celebrity and culture, and if 2017 has taught us anything, it's that tattoos really are for the masses.
