eens and Tattoos
Teens feel that tattoos are a form of self-expression, a way to show their uniqueness and individuality.
Some adults feel that teens with tattoos are rebels, immature, or unprofessional.
Here are some characters from YA books known for their tattoos...
Dru from Linked by Ink by Julie Kimbrell has a lot going on--her job, her crappy car, her determination to ace every test that can get her into a college. She has no time for guys, especially one who works in a tattoo parlor. But there he stands with her muffler in his hand.
Bailey Morgan from Tattoo by Jennifer Lynn Barnes and her friends get more than just a temporary tattoo. With the tattoo comes great power.
Jackie from Inked by Scott Neumyer isn't looking for love, but when she meets George, tattoos wearing bad boy, everything changes. Inked is a 6,000 word short story.
Don't Forget about the power of three!!!
