When it comes to tattoos, there are generally two types of people: the ones who admire them and the ones who hate them. Despite gaining greater acceptance, many people have the wrong idea regarding tattoos, failing to understand that many people choose to get them for their meaning.
Take for example someone like retired soccer player David Beckham. As a celebrity, he is well-known for his numerous tattoos, all of which he says have some significance to him. Of course, there are also plenty of celebrities with tattoos that might raise an eyebrow. The bottom of model and actress Cara Delevingne’s left foot is tattooed with the word “Bacon!” The whole controversy regarding Harambe the gorilla inspired numerous people to have the animal’s name or face tattooed on their body.
Do celebrities or famous figures play a role in influencing choices of tattoos? They might. It’s not unusual for fans of a sports team to have their logo tattooed on them. While it’s okay to follow trends set by a celebrity, it’s just as important to make sure that your decision has some kind of personal attachment, whatever that may be. Remember, the last thing you want is to have something inked because it “looks cool” only to regret it because you didn’t think it through. David Beckham may have awesome tattoos, but don’t get one just because he has some.
