This slideshow of temple tattoos doesn't involve a place of religious worship, but rather the area on the head between the eye and the ear. Judging from the sheer amount and variety of temple tattoos in the gallery above, it's clear that these tattoos are emerging as a slightly more subtle alternative to more abrasive facial tattoos.

The temple tattoos above are from BMEink.com and range from elegant and feminine to downright freaky.

Implications - As body art and modifications become increasingly more popular among mainstream consumers, members of subcultures begin seeking new ways to show their individuality through clothing, tattoos and piercings. Companies can attract a target market of buyers by offering products and services that offer new alternatives to previously taboo goods.
