As increasingly diverse groups of people get tattoos, popular perceptions are typically with the individual meanings behind them. The question remains, Who gets tattoos, and why?
I interviewed one of my most brilliant, interesting young adults named Joanna. She is a self-described “ 39-year-old, misunderstood talented witty female who does not realize her full potential. Her special interests lie in getting tattoos, but more importantly the stories behind them. As a narrative therapeutic specialist, I suggested to her, let’s share your innate gifts with the world, and write a book. So we decided to start with a special interest blog and then turn it into an investigative fun project , that will lead to a great informative book.
We decided to write a book titled ” Tattoo Telling” which is about all the why’s you need to know about the therapeutics behind tattoos.
The one common feeling that was expressed was that every person with a tattoo wants to express their unique personality, and to express their feelings in a creative way. There is so much to come, and we hope you follow our tattoo telling blog that hopefully will turn into a best seller one day.
