A tattoo is a skin design that is symbolic, decorative, and significant. Getting a tattoo is a way of expressing specific qualities of oneself through a drawing. It's as if the person getting a tattoo wants to reveal a facet of his personality, a reflection of how he feels on the inside. Each tattoo, on the other hand, has its own unique meaning. The most prevalent type of tattoo is one that features a specific animal, such as a lion, eagle, or snake.
