Second, tattoo fans are increasing and they love to see their favorite movie stars and celebrities having the latest tattoo fashion. Lastly, tattoos enhance the beauty of a celebrity and make her feel in the limelight with an improved aura even in formal gatherings. It becomes a blend of modern and tribal sophistication that is amusing to renowned personalities.
Tattoos are indeed global and even in Japan tattoos have been in circulation for so many years. They are treated in 2 categories in Japan; one is for symbol of power and authority and the other one is for the outcast of the society.
People are tattooed as punishment and they form the group of minority such as the “eta” or the shame of the people and the “hinin” or the non-humans. Even during the war, Japanese soldiers had their bodies etched with tattoos for identification purposes.
When their corpses are mutilated in the battlefield and their uniforms are stolen, the tattoos in their bodies become an important mode of identification.
