What you need to know about the Chinese architecture tattoo
Boston architecture firms are starting to look more like the Chinese version of tattoo artists.
As they start to make the transition from tattoos to more traditional, non-tattoo design, they’re seeing an increasing number of Chinese clients.
They’re also seeing more clients, according to one firm.
In addition to a growing number of tattoo-related business in Boston, there’s a growing demand for tattoo designs.
This month, there were nearly 1,000 tattoo requests in Boston for the first time, according a survey from Boston-based tattoo company Iso Design Group.
“The demand for the Chinese tattoo is outstripping the supply,” says Andrew J. Cramer, a managing director of the firm.
The number of tattoos requested by tattooists has grown since 2008, when only about 5,000 were done in Boston.
Since then, demand for tattoos has been growing as well.
CPM Group, which runs tattoo parlors in Boston and the surrounding areas, says that demand for Chinese tattoos is outpacing supply.
“We’ve seen more and more people wanting to get tattooed, and we’re seeing a lot of people who are coming to us with tattoos, so we’re excited about the future,” says CPM President Michael J. Korsh.
“But there’s still a long way to go before that is a reality.”
Tattooing and tattooing trends In China, tattoos are often more of a cultural tradition than a formal business practice.
It’s not unusual to see people who have tattoos tattoo their faces, or their foreheads.
There are also people who wear tattoos on their back.
The most popular tattoos in China are often the Chinese tiger head, the “China Tiger,” and the “Chinese Pearl.”
In China there are also tattoo artists who specialize in tattooing designs that reflect the country’s culture and heritage.
Tattoo artists who use traditional Chinese designs are also more likely to have tattooed clients.

Tattoos and tattoos trends in China can be traced back to at least the 11th century, when people first began tattooing their faces in the Forbidden City.
“A lot of the tattooing styles that we see today in China were in fact developed from the 13th century,” says Daphne Wu, an associate professor at the University of New England.
The traditional tattoo art was based on the art of the Chinese Tang dynasty, which ruled China from the 10th to the 14th centuries.
According to Wu, tattoos became a popular pastime for Chinese people, especially in the 18th century.
“In the 17th century there was a great migration of people from the countryside to cities, and that brought the art back with them,” Wu says.
“Traditional Chinese tattoo art is now used all over the world.”
Traditional Chinese tattoos were once used for religious ceremonies and religious art.
But today, tattoos can be used for business purposes.
For example, tattoo artists can use traditional tattoos to mark up their business cards.
And while tattoos can’t be removed from the body, they can be tattooed on other areas.
Wu says tattooing is not limited to the Chinese mainland, but has been practiced in Asia for thousands of years.
“It’s one of the oldest forms of tattooing, and the reason that it’s so widely practiced all over Asia is that there are so many ethnicities in China, and there are a lot more ethnicities living in China,” Wu said.
“If you want to show your business or your work, you can do it in any place.”
Wu says traditional Chinese tattoos are also popular in Japan, which has a huge population of tattooed people.
Traditional Chinese tattoo artists say it’s important to use tattoos for their own business, not just for religious reasons.
“You have to think about the bigger picture,” Wu explained.
“Some people like to go to China to get tattoos, but they do so in a good way, not because they’re religious or for religious purposes.
They just like to have a tattoo.”
And tattooing isn’t just for business, Wu says it’s also a tradition.
Traditional tattoos in Japan have been worn as a sign of respect.
“Tattooing is considered a symbol of respect, so people wear them to show their respect for others,” Wu added.
