The world is changing. Tattoos are gradually becoming a higher art form in the eyes of critics, and though people still run into obstacles with professional standards, we are beginning to embrace this type of self-expression. TWU has a diverse group of students, faculty and staff, so The Lasso reached out to you for your stories. Some of you shared with us. The gallery below shows your peers’ body art and the narrative surrounding it.
“This tattoo was a graduation gift from my mom. Harry Potter has been an incredibly important part of my life since I read the first book when I was eight years old. It’s pretty common to get a tattoo of the Deathly Hallows, so I wanted to add a little something to it to make it more unique. It’s placed in a pretty obvious area of my body, so I get stopped and complimented on it all the time, which basically means I get to obsess over Harry Potter constantly and see other people’s awesome HP inspired tattoos!”
