Do you fancy tattoos?

A tattoo is a form of body modification where a design is made by inserting ink, dyes and pigments, either indelible or temporary, into the dermis layer of the skin to change the pigment. Once ink is deposited into the second layer of skin known as the dermis, the wound scabs over and the skin heals to expose a design under the new layer.

encomium.ng spoke with young adults on whether they fancy tattoos…

 

OPEOLUWA OLUWAYOMI

No, I don’t. Because I want my skin to be as God created me. And again it’s too common all over the world but I only like it on those that it looks good on. It’s not everybody the tattoo fits.

 

BADMUS RONKE

Yes, I do. But not on my body. I do admire it on people, and my reasons for not having one is because I’m scared of the pain and maybe effect.

 

OTUNBA AYANFE

I don’t too much fancy it but no crime about it. Everything in this life is all about ur beliefs. It’s nice and just for fun.

 

AKINYEMI FEMI

I do not like it at all, and again I heard that If it is too plenty on your body, you may not be able to donate blood for someone and it causes cancer.

 

AJIBOLA TOSIN

Of course, I do like it. As a matter of fact, I have it on my body. It’s nice and I make it look decent, not too much but simple.

 

ABAYOMI TIMILEYIN

I like it but I can’t put it on me, because I’m not allowed to. And moreover, it is said to be dangerous, so I can’t have it drawn on my skin even if I like it.

 

DANIEL JULIUS

I do like tattoo but I can’t have it drawn now because of my parents. But once I’m eighteen, I will because I love it on people, and I love to have the stars drawn on my neck.

 

HENRY JOSEPH 

I don’t like it for guys but for ladies. As for me it doesn’t look nice on men but attractive on women. Even my girlfriend has the love tattoo on her left leg and it’s so beautiful.

 

JAMES EWERE

I like it but I can’t have it on my skin. Although it’s not bad, it has been abused that anyone who has it on is irresponsible and I don’t want people to have that expression about me.

 

GEORGE KINGSLEY 

Yes, I fancy it even though I’ve not drawn it yet. I will whenever I have my freedom because it’s always nice and somehow it gives more guts, more courage.
