Why one would want a tattoo on their tongue is way beyond me. Due to the area, the actual tattoos are not that great artistically either. It is also a new field in the world of extreme tattoos with the tip of the tongue being the most popular location.
Implications - Tattoos have managed to find their way in mainstream culture and are no longer considered a sub-culture since consumers are accepting it as mass culture. Companies that are looking to get on this new found cultural paradigm shift should consider using this new tattoo aesthetic for design or packaging when it comes to advertising their products or company to connect with the masses.
