An American art form that emerged in the early 20th century and has since gained prominence in many cultures, tattooing has grown into an art form whose meaning is inextricably linked to the culture it is practiced in.
Tattoos are an integral part of American culture and are often the focus of media and advertising campaigns.
They have been the subject of countless stories, from the rise of the American gangster in the 1950s to the current wave of anti-transgender activism.
The following is an edited transcript of a conversation with artist and tattooist, Sarah Perna, about how tattoos work, their relationship to culture and their place in the body of art.
I think the first thing to do is talk about the history of tattooing.
Tattooing is something that was started in the United States by a German immigrant named Alexander Kühnlein.
He was working on the rail line when he came across the art form.
He started painting it, and when he was finished he wanted to sell it.
So he came to America and started tattooing people.
It’s been in the history books for centuries, and in fact the first American to tattoo himself was Benjamin Franklin, in 1787.
So it’s kind of a long history, but it started in Germany, so the art had roots in Germany and was already very popular.
Nowadays, tattooists in the U.S. are mostly immigrants from Germany, but back then it was mostly a foreigner thing.
Tattoists were not really allowed to come here to practice their art, so most of them came here to make money.
But then a man from Italy named Antonio Crespi came here in 1857, and that’s when tattoos really started to take off.
He opened a shop in New York City and began to offer his art.
He offered it to people who would only get a few tattoos, and then it spread like wildfire.
It started with men, but now it’s a lot more diverse, with a lot of different cultures, with different ethnicities, with other people who are just as fascinated by tattooing as the average person is.
And so tattoos are an important part of the history and the identity of tattooers and artists and art lovers in the American South, and so tattoos can be an important component of that.
So tattoos are a way for us to express ourselves, to connect with our ancestors, to express our own identity.
But tattooing isn’t just about tattoos.
There are other ways of expressing ourselves as well.
If you want to paint, there’s a whole lot of techniques and things you can do to paint a body.
And there’s also a whole range of other things that can be done with tattoos.
One of the most common ways is that of using the tattoo as a visual metaphor.
It can be very effective, because you can create an idea in your mind.
So when you tattoo someone, you are able to use the ink in a different way.
For example, when I have a tattoo of a face, I use the same ink that I use to tattoo my face, and I can put my fingers and thumbs together and put the ink under my skin and apply it to the tattoo.
I can make the ink go from blue to red, or black to white, or yellow to red.
And this is how you paint with a tattoo, because if I put the same tattoo on a different body part, the same way I would apply it on a human body, I can create the same effect.
I’ll be able to say, “This is my body,” and it becomes more of a metaphor, it becomes a visual representation of who I am.
And it’s an important metaphor because it says, “I’m human, and this is who I really am.”
I think that’s the best way to understand tattooing, because it’s so expressive.
But there are other things you do with tattoos that are not as effective.
Some of them, for example, are called the ‘birch needle’.
The word ‘birs’ literally means ‘bright blue.’
You might put it in the mouth of someone, or you can put it on your arm.
It could be in your ear, it could be on your nose.
It is really a visual, emotional response, and it’s very difficult to do, so that’s why people are afraid of it.
And if you want a tattoo that’s really hard to do or that you can’t use in a certain way, then you have to do a different tattoo.
And you can see how difficult it is to do it.
It really has to be very precise.
And a lot different tattooing techniques can be applied to different bodies.
So I’m not saying that every tattoo artist is the same, but most tattoo artists are very consistent.
And the art of tattoo can be one of the best ways to express oneself.
So for example in the 19th century, the American painter Thomas Edison painted his own portraits
