cultural probe results

I created cultural probe packs for tattoo artists, people being tattooed and un-tattooed people and got back some interesting results! A tattooed wooden manikin, face paint tattoos drawn on people and a variety of opinions. Tattoos were described as "foolish vanity" and an expression of "art and your interests". In general though, un-tattooed people were concerned about not having the perfect design that they would be happy with for the rest of their lives. I also found that tattoos artists and people who get tattoos are passionate about them and most have stories and meanings behind them. However, these meanings can be distorted by others.
