Taking your starting point in text 3, discuss what ink tattoos signal in today’s society.
Tattoos is no longer considered to be just a body art. People are getting tattoos for different reasons. Some people want tattoos and others will not.
Some people are getting a tattoo, because of their criminal background and others are getting a tattoo just to decorating their bodies. Some people are getting a tattoo for meaningful thing.
Tattoos have become much more normal over the years. For 15 or 20 years ago insist the government that their workers should not have tattoos or at least that their tattoos should not be visible to the public.
Brendan are thinking that the government should employ people with tattoos. So all people could be equal with the people that not have tattoos.
