On November 19th, 2015, The Daily Mail posted an article on the “Whole Glory” art exhibit in Milk Gallery in Manhattan. The exhibit allows randomly chosen participants to stick their arm inside a hole in a wall and get a tattoo by Scott Campbell, whose usually charges $1,000 for the first hour of tattooing. The artist and his clients had no contact while getting inked, and the clients did not see his work until he was done (Stern, 2015). Today tattoos are seen on more than just the powerful; they are now for everyday common people. Tattoos have come a very long way to get where they are and have been through many progressions with in the techniques. But with their popularity, and predominance within the art world, they have become a trend for more than just delinquents.
Daniel Evers has worked in numerous cities and states over his career. I asked how educated his general clientele is, he responded without hesitation. “Over my career, I have noticed a dramatic increase in the number of lawyers, nurses, pharmacists, and high ranking military getting tattooed. The common thought when I began my career as an artist was that only drug users or gang members were tattooed. Now it is common for business owners and veterinarians to have tattoos from head to toe.” (Evers, 2016)
The tattoo artist originally denied taking part, but eventually confessed to putting tattoos on multiple people, including both adults and "a number of minors," with one minor being recorded while she put the tattoo on while people looked on.
On the show, his son Chase got one and Todd threw a fit. He actually took him in so that he could get it removed. Everyone saw how painful this was for Chase and Todd just laughed it off. He didn't care at all and just wanted to see the tattoo gone.
Being passed up by the county, he said, “made me work harder to prove myself as a good person, not someone who would be judged by my outside tattoos.

You would be hard pressed to find many women with tattoos during the 19th and 20th centuries, but one women pushed through the skepticism and public views to become America’s “first tattooed lady.” Nora Hildebrandt was the daughter of the first professional tattoo artist in America, Martin Hildebrant, so it figures that she would eventually follow in her father’s footsteps and develop a fascination with tattoos. Nora began showing off her tattoos in 1882 at the age of 32. Her primary mode of displaying the 365 tattoos that covered her body from neck to toe was to go on tour with Barnum & Bailey Circus (Pednaud, 2014). She toured with the well-known circus throughout the 1890’s, until she was eventually out done by another tattooed woman and consequently faded into time. While Nora might have made tattooed women a grand attraction at circuses, she was just the beginning.

Calum smiles, tracing his index finger over the tattoo scribbled over Michael's shoulder. It's one of the few Michael had done on himself before he was actually of legal age to get tattoos. It's one of Calum’s favorites.
She gasped as she saw tattoos across his body. A few she recognized as older gangs that had long since dispersed from the area. The one tattoo that caught her interest the most was the one covering his shoulder that showed a large dragon, frozen in time from a long forgotten legend.
In other words, Dolgoff chose to get her tattoos to remember something important to her. Jane’s reason was rather shallow, immature, and a typical teen trend, while Dolgoff had a deep experience that she wanted to remember and her tattoo represents that part of her life. My experience with my tattoos makes it easy for me to relate to both Janes and Dolgoff and their tattoos. Much like Janes, when I was a teen I chose to get a tattoo on a whim, my boyfriend’s initials. I thought that I had considered the decision to get this tattoo over thoroughly. I even got a small tattoo in an easily hidden place on my body, and still no bells and whistles went off telling me to maybe reconsider. I went through with it and, when the relationship ended, the tattoo stayed as a constant reminder. It worked out in the end. Getting a smaller tat was a good idea because it was easily covered by another tattoo which held a lot more meaning for me.
