BODY PHARAGRAPHS 2 Body Paragraphs Tattoos are as diverse as the individuals wearing them, dating back to thousands of  years with a great history. When thinking about getting a tattoo there are questions that one  must find answers to; for example how to pick the right artist, tattoo and tattoo shop? How to  determine the appropriate price and size one should also look into the removal process.  Although there are many myths and misconceptions about tattoos; many people get tattoos to  express themselves. Throughout history people have marked their bodies with tattoos, some are elaborate,  some are just plain, and regardless they have been a personal statement. These statements  could be “served as amulets, status symbols, declarations of love, signs of religious beliefs,  adornments and even forms of punishments.” (Lineberry) for examples, women in ancient Egypt  would get tattoos around their stomachs, hips and breasts as a symbolic amulet of the trials and  difficulties they endured during pregnancy and labor.  The tattoos these women received were  designed by the older women in the community most of the women would receive these tattoos  by the age of 5 or 6 the tattoos were mainly large dots in patterns of lines or diamonds.  (Lineberry) many Samoan tribes used tattoos to define rank and title throughout their tribes and  when a boy reached man hood he received a tattoo.  In ancient Asia young girls would receive  tattoos when they were old enough to be married off.

BODY PHARAGRAPHS 3 Not all statements made with tattoos thru out history were positive ones or even wanted.  For example in Ancient Greece criminals and slaves were forced to get tattoos with specific  symbols to represent what they were as well as who they belonged too. During the holocaust  prisoners that were sent to the Auschwitz Concentration camp were given serial numbers and
