25 Extreme Full Body Tattoos That Wrap the Whole Body in Ink
Embracing self-expression continues to be one of the predominant ways that modern individuals differentiate themselves from others. While tattoos were once associated with counter-culture that deviated away from cultural norms, they have recently become much more acceptable and widely embraced. For instance, many of our favorite professional athletes sport sick ink. Because of the shift in thought, more people are going all in and getting full-body tattoos that offer maximum self-expression.
