Tattoos are a form of body art or alteration. Some people are satisfied with just one tattoo while others seek to cover their entire body. Many religious people interpret the bible verse Leviticus 19:28 as to mean tattoos are forbidden.
A tattoo is a form of body modification, made by inserting indelible ink into the dermis layer of the skin to change the pigment. Tattooing has been practiced for centuries in many cultures, particularly in Asia, and spread throughout the world.
