Let's see your tattoos: Celebrate Tattoo Day

The history of tattoos is almost as old as time itself, as humanity has marked bodies for thousands of years.

One of the earliest examples of tattooing came from Egypt where evidence surfaced that women had tattoos on their bodies and limbs from figurines c. 4000-3500 B.C.

Fast forward thousands of years to the present day and the story of tattoos are just as varied and convoluted. People are fascinated with tattoos, and more people are getting them every year to commemorate a visual of their legacy. 

Today is Tattoo Day and the occasion is permanently marked by telling a story of who we were, who we are, and sometimes of just where we’re going. Today is all about raising awareness about tattoos and their ancient and respected history as well as seeking to change the view the world has for them.

Why not commemorate today with getting one? Perhaps your sleeve is not yet complete, or your back piece not fully colored in, or maybe will be your first? All of these are excellent reasons to get out and see your favorite tattoo artist in celebration of Tattoo Day.

Do you have a Death Wish Coffee tattoo? We want to see them! Tag us in the photo and use hashtag #deathwishtattoo and who knows – we just might repost yours.
