Tattoos In Society Today & Mike Tyson by John Quinlan

Tattoos in society today are much more common place than they were in the past. From celebrities to athletes, many people all across the globe sport body art in some way. They have officially become mainstream. Here are a few examples:
Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson's chest tattoo

Manny Pacquiao's Arm Tattoo

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Marquesan Tahitian (Polynesian) & Bull Tattoo's

I think society has, for the most part, come a long way in recent years. It is nice to see people expressing themselves through their tattoos as they often hold deep personal meaning. I have always been a fan of those who are not afraid of being different & unique. I think it separates one from the rest of the crowd...he or she stands out. They are not afraid of what others think about them and I respect that quality very much. It can be something simple as Marisa Tomei's foot tattoo:

or a bit more like Jesse James ex-wife Janine Lindemulder:

It's all about you as a person to exercise your freedom of choice which is a great thing! Here is a photo of one of my own tattoos, the dragon half sleeve:

This just wouldn't be complete without mentioning the man with one of the most creative tattoos on God's green earth, the one and only Mike Tyson:

Personally I have always been a strong Mike Tyson supporter throughout the years. Many don't realize what a tough early life he had and being cast into the spotlight at such a young age as the heavyweight champion of the world must have been a lot to handle. Remember, every story always has 2 sides, far too often we never get to hear the truth directly from the person and they get bashed by the public  by "hearsay". I feel Tyson was often a victim of this. Like him or hate him, you have to respect him.

Watch this amazing documentary, keep an open mind before you watch it. Maybe this video, for those of you who dislike Mike, might change your mind of him.

God Bless
