Woman With Beetle Tattoo Showcases Unique Design
Tattoos are permanent and will always be with a person. So, tattoos should be a work of art that you will always appreciate. In this short video, a Brazilian tattoo artist Tomas Melo or as he goes by “Menace”, created a beautiful dung beetle on a women’s lower arm. The beetle’s wings cross her elbow in a way where when she moves her arms she can make the beetle fly. How cool is that! The video ends with the view of a radiant Brazilian sunset with compliments the stunning tattoo design. This unique design is a masterpiece, which will endure the test of time and remain cool and trendy.
Tattooing has been around for thousands of years. The art form can be traced as far back as ancient Egypt, but there have been examples of tattoos found in other cultures where they developed individually, especially in China, Polynesia, and South East Asia. The art form was popular in South East Asia as tribal and religious symbols. These tattoos were mainly given using a "stick and poke" method, where a needle dipped in ink would be rapidly stabbed into the skin. Tattoos spread to the western world with Captain Cooks voyages, on his first voyage, his crew returned from their travels in Asia with tattoos of plants and important symbols from their travels. In addition, Captain Cook brought back a native Pacific islander who was tattooed, which highly interested King George of England. Shortly after the first tattoo shop opened in the United Kingdom, but was still largely associated with sailors.
The art of tattooing gained more popularity in the United States, during the civil war. Japanese and Polynesian tattoo artists would give American and European soldiers tattoos, especially in port cities. After the war, the art of tattooing remained popular among soldiers, but soon gained more popularity among the upper classes, and was seen more as an art form rather than lower class. Although with the invention of the electric tattoo machine, tattoos became cheaper and less of a status symbol than before with the ‘stick and poke’ method, making the practice available among all social and economic classes. While tattoos are seen negatively in some parts of society, I think this tattoo is an incredible work of art and incredibly unique. So original!
