How do you effectively express your SELF? By showing who you are with your own Personality Tattoo!
Everyone is unique, whether they know it or not. Some peeps do this though their own talents, skills or aptitudes. Some identify closely with the professions they've chosen, or by their favorite hobbies or passions. Still others choose to reveal themselves by displaying their unique styles and tastes.
This goes along with choices in clothes, hairstyles, make-up etc. We can provide further clues with what we drive (especially here in the States), where we live (area of town, our house or apartment) and our music choices.
And of course, you can express yourself with INK! I call it your "Personality Tattoo" but really, its a great way to just show the world what is so special about YOU.

In another example – say you are really into Astronomy or space exploration. What better way to show this than with some well-placed, well-designed ink?
Here's some "express yourself" brainstorming on that topic:
You choose the topic – what are you all about? How do you want to be remembered? What is it you LOVE about your job? What makes you RUSH HOME at the end of the workday? What is the first thing you think about when you wake up?
