Tattoos are becoming more and more popular these days; especially teens are in increasing numbers getting tattooed. It is desire of every individual to have an attractive tattoo on his or her body. Tattoos are used to express our feelings and to make us stand out in the crowd. They represent our personality and show who we are.

A tattoo is a permanent marking made by inserting ink into the skin to change the pigment for decorative purposes or for other reasons. Tattoos on humans have been perceived as a form of decorative body modification and have been used to emphasize or enhance one's looks.

People get tattoos for a variety of reasons. They can be symbolic of some important event in their life, they can be a memorial to someone they love, or they can choose a tattoo design for purely ascetic reasons. A vast number of cultures and societies have tattooing as a part of their tradition or customs. Today, the art of tattooing has become more commercialized. It is a fashion statement. Sometimes tattoos are also used to cover up scars and other permanent blemishes.

Tattoo machines are the modern way to apply tattoos. Before the invention of tattoo machines tattoos were applied by hand. Hand applied tattoos often looked sloppy. The designs were not as accurate as they could have been. Plus, the hand applied tattooing process was usually not very safe. Some people who received a tattoo ended up with skin problems or other infections.

Tattoos in the past were done manually – the tattoo artist would puncture the skin with a needle and inject the ink by hand. Though this process is still used in some parts of the world, most tattoo shops use a tattoo machine these days. The tattoo guns make tattooing much more quickly today because the machine is able to deliver the ink into the skin as it is puncturing the skin. The tattoo artist can change the tip of the machine to contain one needle or group of needles depending on if they are drawing the outline of the design or shading part of the design. Most tattoo artist today is very skilled and knows just how far to drive the needle into the skin to produce a good tattoo.

Tattoo machines or guns are made in different sizes. Some machines are meant to apply one color and other machines can be used to apply multiple colors. Regardless of the size and use of a tattoo gun the right care and maintenance is important. Guns that are maintained and cared for properly will produce high quality and beautiful tattoos.
