he most common form of tattoos in today’s world is for decorative purposes to merely show control over one’s physical body and its outside appearance. Since these instances of body art have become more about beautification and choice, it has made the world of tattoos explode with choices. What do you want drawn on you forever? Where do you want it? Each answer is unique to each person since the majorities of tattoos are very personal—even if they are matching tattoos with a friend, family member, or loved one. However, tattoos have taken on a bit of a twist lately by becoming very popular markings to have on one’s tongue. Since in the mainstream culture of the Western World tattoos are considered to be something to at least be hidden if they are to be placed on your body at all, the tongue provides an interesting platform for the designs and personal body artwork that can remain discrete. The tongue has become a favorite palate for self expression in the minds of young adults who are part of Western culture.
