What are purposes that tattoos have served both in Canadian culture and in other countries and other times?
For example they can be a very compact souvenir of a trip to a distant land. Need to know some answers for I'm writing a paragraph on it.

Thanks so much. ^-^

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. People seem to like tatooes for decoration. They mean something to the person who has them; they commemorate something they don't want to forget. Tattooes can identify a gang, for example.
