FAMOUS TATTOO QUOTES:
For westerners, the tattoo has always been a metaphor of difference.
~Margo DeMello, Bodies of Inscription: A Cultural History of the Modern Tattoo Community, 2000
There is no "underground" community, no dark den of drunken sailors initiating themselves into manhood via cheap, ill-conceived exercises in bodily perforation; it's just a group of people who delight in using their bodies as billboards.
~Joanne McCubrey, "Walking Art: Tattoos," Mountain Democrat Weekend magazine, 9 February 1990
