Lebanese women are fighting taboos and overcoming assumptions made about them every day. They are making it clear that they are free to take whatever path they chose in life, rejecting as they do so every judgment that might come their way.
The Art of Tattoo is very ancient and has been, so far, traced back to 3351 BC but it is assumed that it existed even farther in time.
It’s an art legacy of numerous cultures around the world; cultures that were not connected geographically or ideologically, hence the fascination around the concept itself.
Recent years have revived that Art everywhere in the world and Lebanon is no exception as body tattooing has become popular.
This article today is dedicated to the Lebanese female artists who have excelled beyond expectations in their body art careers, despite the ink prescription in various areas in the middle east.
