“Tattoos are a form of art and your body is the canvas. No one should judge someone based of their art. As long as it is appropriate and not offensive there should be no problem with it,” said senior Taylor Krupianik.

Tattoos are meant to have meaning, not just something you thought of on a whim. You want to be adventurous, that’s cool. But don’t let this adventure be one you will regret.

In the U.S. the total percentage of tattooed Americans is at 14 percent. Between the ages of 18 and 25, 36 percent have at least one tattoo on their body. Forty percent between the ages of 26 to 40 have tattoos as well, according to statistics shown on

Tattoos are not uncommon to see, but it’s their meaning that stands out, that makes them different from the rest.

If it doesn’t have meaning, why have it at all? Because you liked it? That’s not enough. This is something you will have on your body for the rest of your life. Not just a short period of time, like temporary tattoos.

If all you want is a temporary tattoo, then get the little ones that you press against your skin with a wet cloth. Real tattoos are permanent, and takes a large amount of money to remove.

The price for tattoos cost between $50-$300 or more. Removal price can range from anywhere between $100-$500 per session.

Tattoos are supposed to represent something, not just to have for fun then regret it later.
