Though the practice of tattooing is hundreds of years old, it has only recently moved into the mainstream. Prior to the 1990s, tattooing was mostly reserved for bikers, prisoners, sailors and assorted counter cultural ne’er-do-wells. However, the past 20-30 years have seen the art form surge into mainstream legitimacy with doctors, lawyers and even grandmothers getting themselves inked up. Some tattoos have spiritual or sacred value. Others are expressions of vanity. Still more are drunken mistakes that will remind their owner of the consequences of poor decision making for the rest of their lives. It is only inevitable then, that tattooing should reach the juggling and circus arts communities.

Below is a selection of juggling tats submitted by our friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter. Which are your favorites? Let us know in the comments. Do you have a circus tat? Share it with us!
