It’s Tattoo Day!

Got ink? Today we celebrate Tattoo Day. Tattoos are nothing new, they’ve been around since the 1800’s. At that time, they were a sign of someone being a criminal. Oh, how times have changed!

These days, 22% of Canadians (2 in 10) have at least one tattoo on their body. Do you?

Some of the main reasons people get tattoos include:
– To help identify themselves
-To honour loved ones
-For style/self expression
-For attention

Any tattoos? Do they have special meaning?
