Tattoos: Not Just For Bikers Anymore

In the distant past, tattoos had the smallest shred of acceptance, primarily based on the people who wore them. When soldiers returned to the United States after being abroad, it was difficult to avoid too much negativity about the names of their loved ones or  Mom and Dad , emblazoned on their arms again. It is likely that the admission is more for support than the tattoo, but had the tattoos not reached a degree of respectability to the American public in general. Because syphilis was more widespread, and the less-than-sanitary tattooing procedures to add to its increase, New York City eventually banned tattooing, and not re-create the practice of law until 1997.

If contempt for the army began to spread across the United States, as a new counterculture. For most Americans in that time period, the word  tattoo  stands for those outside the mainstream of America, thumbing their noses at society. It brought to the edge element of unwanted thoughts, the well-movie  Easy Rider , to the infamous Hells Angels . Fat people riding bikes and unpleasant artwork displayed in various parts of their bodies - bikers were only  cool  among their own kind, and thought of in a very unfavorable light by most of the U.S. population. In general, tattoos were limited to the range of individuals, and both Bikers and their sleeves , was something the people in general prefer to do without.

Although in some locations, especially those with Navy bases, tattoos remained a moderate degree of acceptance enjoyed in the seventies, but still not considered a respectable means of personal expression within the mainstream population. The younger generation who lived in these areas, with the usual curiosity of youth, often visited tattoo parlors and began to make tattoos a part of their lifestyle. Since these were mostly young adults whose drug use and lifestyle among too much alcohol, they embrace the practice of tattoos do not help in convincing the older generation that there is something positive about it. A tattoo artist who practiced in the naval town of Port Hueneme, Calif., noted that the nature of the persons whose lifestyle included tattoos are the kind of people that  not usually make it forty years old.

Also commented that the tattoos are  fever , said he shed some light on the most negative aspects of this practice. Although the law is not intended to artists such works on people in a drunken state to do his clients were usually one of two categories: those who requested tattoos, and severely under-the-influence, and the Fainter. His tattoo studio had a large bank in favor of the latter. Young drug users and navy men, most of its customers.

It was not until the early eighties that tattoos began to get positive exposure. The Long Island based band , The Stray Cats , appear on the cover of music magazine Rolling Stone, not only to achieve this, the rockabilly music style back into popularity it was also one of the first steps in helping tattoos have broad appeal. In step away from the rough music of that time period, the Stray Cats  scope was that of good clean music and Good Clean Fun, and tattoos were a part of that image. Suddenly everyone wanted a part of it all, like the tattoos, and although it often to the chagrin of the older generation, tattoos began less negativity associated with it.

If tattoos are not only connected to the counter-culture, they began to appear at all. In subsequent years they began to see Americans on average across the United States. Tattoo studios emerged in cities that colleges and universities had tattoos which an accepted part of life for students. If the people in that age group became older, their tattoos have remained, and the interest in the development of newer tattoos among the younger generation. In most parts of the United States are now commonplace, and considered just a basic form of self expression.
