  • A brief history of tattoos
    • Tattoos (or scarification) appear in every culture in the world
    • Oldest discovered tattoo is from about 3,300 bce
      • Often associated with coming of age rituals, healing, and other sacred rites
    • Techniques range as widely as subjects do
      • The modern tattoo machine was developed in 1891 by Samuel O’Reilly
  • As the art form grows, so does the cultural acceptance Jeff Gogue Guy Aitchison Mike DeVries
  • Nikko Hurtado James Kern Paul Booth
  • Ooh, pretty! I want one!
    • WAIT!
    • You must be 18 in the state of Oregon to get a tattoo, those who tattoo minors risk heavy fines and imprisonment
    • Those who tattoo minors or outside of a licensed shop are irresponsible, and most likely unskilled and DANGEROUS!
      • Staph infections/mersa
      • Hepatitis A, B, and C
      • HIV
    • Cover-ups cost more, removal costs more AND hurts more
    • Bad tattoos make you look bad!
  • THINK before you INK!
    • Find a licensed artist you can trust who will listen to what you want
    • If the shop is dirty, reusing needles, or makes you at all uncomfortable, LEAVE!
    • Look at examples of other art & come with an idea, please don’t pick it off the wall! What’s the rush?
    • Your tattoo is an expression of who you are! The quality of your tattoos shows how you feel about yourself!
  • “ A thing of beauty is a joy forever” - John Keats Thank you!
