Tattoos are relatively common. Moms have them. Dads have them. "Working professionals" have them, and for good reason. Over the last few decades, they have become part of the mainstream.

But for many years, hand and finger tattoos were consider taboo. They were relegated to musicians, "thugs," and hardcore enthusiasts.
