Dermadonna Custom Tattoos, Downtown Amsterdam
Please take a look and learn, not only to decide whether or not you’ll make it to the shop to customize your body with art but also and I think very important, to know more about it’s history and means.
My advice is to think twice before you’ll decide to do it, after all it will be a mark for life so you’ll have to be sure to want one (or two, or three…). Also take a close look and be very careful of what to choose, tattoos are very personal and it’s a shame if you’ll regret your choice in the future.
Therefore I think the best choice is to make your own design or let the artist design something that really fits you or your needs. This way it’s most likely you still love it after some period of time or even better, your whole life!
Good luck in whatever your choice will be.

Tattoo Art in General
Tattooing has been a Eurasian practice at least since Neolithic times. Mummies bearing tattoos and dating from the end of the second millennium BC have been discovered at Pazyryk on the Ukok Plateau. Tattooing in Japan is thought to go back to the Paleolithic era, some ten thousand years ago. Various other cultures have had their own tattoo traditions, ranging from rubbing cuts and other wounds with ashes, to hand-pricking the skin to insert dyes.
