We live in a world of copies. Art, movies, and music are created, replicated, and transmitted instantly without a second thought. We shop at similar places, wear similar clothes, and for the most part, we live similar lives. Getting body art can be about many different things but one of those things is the decision to stand apart – it is about making the choice to differentiate yourself from anyone else – the celebration of one’s own individuality.
It is for that reason that it’s critical to deeply consider the kind of art you are choosing to adorn your body with. While having tattoos can say something about a person the kind of tattoos they have says more. If you are truly seeking to stand apart from the crowd you need to have tattoos that represent that – that are beautiful, and inspiring, and undoubtedly original. Copying a tattoo from the internet or from a famous person is settling for less than you deserve.
