Tattoos are a style of body modification involving the injection of ink beneath the surface of the skin. Though it isn't entirely certain when tattoos originated, they seem to have sprung up in Polynesia, Africa and parts of Asia and Japan at around the same period of history. The name 'tattoo' comes from the Polynesian word 'tatau'. From these islands in the Pacific, tattoos spread quite literally on the bodies of sailors returning home from long ocean voyages. James Cook returned to Europe in 1771 from Tahiti and New Zealand with the word tattoo and first proper descriptions of what it was. The first documented tattoo artist in the United States was Martin Hildebrant, who set up shop in Boston in 1846. Today, tattoos have ceased to be seen as rebellious and seedy, instead being seen as a form of expression and artistry.

Learning to tattoo is a long and involved process requiring years of learning as an apprentice under an experienced tattoo artist. Before anyone considers trying to get into tattooing as a profession, they absolutely need to have outstanding hand-eye co-ordination and good vision. A steady hand is required, as is a lack of squeamishness about blood or any and all parts of the body. Finally, a basic level of artistry is essential, since most tattooists do a fair amount of freehand drawing to prepare the stencils for their tattoos. Beyond that, patience and a work ethic are necessary.
