Tattoos as body art? Oh yeah! Take a look around where ever you are right now. See any tattoos? My guess is yes. 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. They simply love the design and view it as body art.

Some of these designs are very intricate and take shape over a number to sittings. The Japanese Koi Fish Tattoos are a great example of this. Usually the Koi Tattoos are set in a scene. They contain either water or garden designs that surround the Koi Tattoo. Some of these tattoos can cover the entire back or shoulder. There are generally very colorful and loaded with symbolism.

If you look at these tattoos and their tattoo design, you will see that they are truly art.

 

Art in a very real and beautiful form. The artists that designed and did the tattooing should be considered amongst the most talented of their trade.

Tattooing as body art is a practice that is becoming more and more popular but really it has been around for a very long time. In many cultures, whole body tattooing was done in intricate gorgeous designs. The Japanese culture especially is known for tattooing beautiful scenes across the back and down the arms. There are images of waves, villages, koi fish and beautiful gardens. A true art form. Many of the other ancient cultures used tattooing as body art also, but it really was not until recently that tattooing beautiful scenes across the body really began to explode as an art form in its own right. A spin off of this is body art painting. I suppose the difference would come in that the paint can be removed and a different design put in its place. Obviously, tattoos are permanent, so you need to do your research and get the best tattoo design and tattoo artist you can afford.

If you are thinking about covering a large part of your body with a tattoo design, you would be wise to take your time and have a complete plan and design in place. The more intricate and colorful the design, the more time it will take to do the actual tattooing. You will probably want to have the tattoo done in stages. A little bit at a time is easier on you, your wallet, and the tattoo artist.

If you are looking for inspiration for your tattoo body art, check some of the tattoos of Japan, China and any of the ancient cultures. Combine a number of tattoo designs to get that perfect tattoo. Take your time and be patient. Find a great tattoo design site, preferably one that has tattoos that are drawn by artists, copy and paste a few designs together, get some feedback from other people and keep working on the design until it is perfect. Now you are all set, and you will have the best tattoo art around.

Peace Always.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
