Body art boom revives tattoos

At the height of the pandemic, along with exercising at the gym and beauty parlour treatments, numerous tattooing outlets everywhere had to shut down. Some shops closed down forever.

But with the West emerging from the disease, tattooing is back there. With a bang. Or should we say a happy pang?  

Across the US, tattoo artists are witnessing a boom in bookings, reports “People have spent the past year declaring their desire to get inked, whether to memorialise the unprecedented circumstances they’ve lived through or to embrace a new vehicle for self-expression after months of social inhibition.
